The article describes a hue memory test. It explains the value of color memory in performing many activities and judgments. It offers information on an individual-type test which makes use of hue chips and which consists of a wheel on which the test chips and comparison chips are mounted. According to the authors, the comparison chips consist of the 43 odd-numbered hues of the Farnsworth-Munsell hue series. They conclude that the reliability of the hue memory test is sufficiently high to make the test a useful one but it could not substitute the Woods' Color Aptitude Test.
