ADM (Average Distance Measure) is an IR effectiveness metric based on the assumptions of continuous relevance and retrieval. This paper presents some novel experimental results on two different test collections: TREC 8, re-assessed on 4-levels relevance judgments, and TREC 13 TeraByte collection. The results confirm that ADM correlation with standard measures is high, even when using less data, i.e., few documents.
