The Visagraphic eye movement measurements of fifty-two Pacific University College of Optometry students was compared to the subjective answers to thirteen question concerning reading and visual performance asked of each individual. The objective Visagraphic measurements of Reading Rate With Rereading, Reading Rate Without Re-reading and Relative Efficiency correlated best with overall subjective reading performance, comprehension ability, and necessity to re-read material, other comparisons of subjective ans objective performance showed low correlations.
