What Do Standardized Tests of Reading Comprehension Measure in Terms of Efficiency, Accuracy, and Rate?
Carver, Ronald P.
Reading Research Quarterly, v27 n4 p346-59 1992
Investigates factors measured by several tests of reading comprehension. Four different factor analyses consistently resulted in Efficiency Level factor when there was one factor; when there were two factors, one was interpreted as Accuracy Level and the other as Rate Level factor. Finds that the most important factor involved is Efficiency Level, which includes the ability to read fast. (RS)
