Abstract

The reading complexity of a sample of French youth waiver forms used by Quebec police organizations was assessed. The complexity of six unique waiver forms was assessed using four readability measures (i.e., word length, Laesbarhedsindex Formula, Kandel-Moles score, and word frequency). Results showed that the waivers are relatively lengthy, contain grammatically complex and difficult to understand sentences as well as some infrequent words. The likelihood that the legal rights afforded to Québec youths are being protected and the need to create a standardized and comprehensible waiver form are discussed.
