2010 School Psychology Review  
The addi- tion of growth as a screening construct adds complexity to the “efficiency” requirement of screening because measurement must occur at least twice.  ...  Methodological Variations Beyond the selection of predictor and criterion measures, different methodological approaches may increase prediction accuracy and efficiency.  ... 

Screening for Dyslexia in French-Speaking University Students: An Evaluation of the Detection Accuracy of the Alouette Test

Eddy Cavalli, Pascale Colé, Gilles Leloup, Florence Poracchia-George, Liliane Sprenger-Charolles, Abdessadek El Ahmadi
2017 Journal of Learning Disabilities  
The results showed that, on the Alouette test, dyslexic readers were impaired on measures of accuracy, speed, and efficiency (accuracy/reading time).  ...  We also found significant correlations between the Alouette reading efficiency and phonological efficiency scores.  ...  C corresponds to the number of words correctly read and TL to the reading time (temps de lecture in French).  ...

Such increase in efficiency even after the limit would seem to be reached is common to all practise curves.  ...  The average of the last six trials with the screen was 35.5 and without the screen 36.7. These records are very rapid ones, from over three to more than four letters per second.  ... 

Evaluation of Efficient Line Lengths for Better Readability

Zahid Hussain, Syed Asif Ali Shah, Wajiha Shah
2012 Mehran University Research Journal of Engineering and Technology  
The experiment examined the effects of four different line lengths on the reading speed and the reading efficiency. Efficiency is defined as a combination of reading speed and accuracy.  ...  The reading speed seems to increase while the line length increases but the overall comprehension seems to peak at medium line lengths.  ...  So the expansion of the line length from 30-120 CPL brought an increase in efficiency of approximately 13% (Tables 4 and 7) .  ...
