Recall of paired-associate, binary coded, three-digit numbers was tested in an effort to determine the applicability of the binomial probability distribution in modeling short-term, human memory. Further, the use of discrimination net theory principles in tests of recall was examined. Although the analysis showed the binomial probability distribution to be applicable in modeling memory to the 0.95 level of significance, by no means is the model capable of universal application; in fact, the application is probably as localized as the assumptions made about it and its functional frame of reference - that of a console operator.
