Symons, Sonya; Specht, Jacqueline A.
Journal of Reading Behavior, v26 n3 p267-76 Sep 1994
Examines factors related to efficiency in a textbook search task. Finds that time and accuracy involved distinct processes and that accuracy was related to verbal competence. Finds further that measures of planning and extracting information accounted for 59% of the variance in search efficiency. Suggests that both accuracy and rate need to be included in defining text search efficiency. (BS)
