The article reports on the dynamics of the Ellis Memory for Objects Test with emphasis on the result of a study which used the test. The Ellis Memory for Object Test measures the capacity of a child's memory to recall certain objects. The test requires a child to recall the objects shown to him in the same order when the objects were first introduced. Specifically, the purpose of the study was to establish a standard memory for children whose age range from five to eight years. The test was administered to 360 public school children who were retarded in mental development.
