Abstract This experiment was done to see the impact of Primacy and recency Effect. Ebbinghaus demonstrated that in serial learning, words heard at the beginning and the end of the list are better memorized and recalled. It is a study that investigates in serial learning the primary effect reflects the output of the long-term store, whereas the recency effect reflects the output of short-term store. The Primacy and Recency Effect refers that items in the middle of the list are recalled poorly for at least two reasons, first they are so far from the end of list that they are not in the short-term store at the beginning of the retention test. Second, the subjects did not rehearse them extensively because only few items can be rehearsed at a time. The Primacy and Recency Effect Test requires individual to view a list of forty words, one word at a time for three seconds and asked to recall in any order. This Test demonstrates Primacy and Recency effect on recall and this outcome is called the serial position effect because the retention of an item depended upon the position effect in which it had been presented. The sample consist of total thirty subjects fifteen boys and fifteen girls. The subjects are graduate students of the age group sixteen-thirty, located in Hyderabad. In this study Simple Random Sampling is used.
