Abstract

The research predicted that there would be a significant difference in memory recall, between the two word groups. The purpose was to find a difference between recalling words with black ink compared to words with various colored ink. Using a between subjects design, thirty participants, were randomly assigned to read and memorize a set of 20 words. Subjects were then asked to accurately recall as many words as possible from the first set of words. The results found that the colored group’s scores differed from the non-colored group scores. These results suggest that color does impact memory recall.
