Abstract

A modification of the Fuld Object Memory Evaluation (FOME) was administered to 232 normally functioning children in grades one through eight in a public school district in Phoenix, Arizona. The test was terminated once all 10 objects were successfully recalled by the child. Ceiling effects were observed as 226 out of 232 children (97.4%) recalled all 10 objects on or before the fourth trial. Ineffective reminders were rare. Ceiling effects were studied as a function of age and grade level. The information may be helpful when examining children with severe cognitive impairments or from different cultural backgrounds.
