Abstract : This paper defines and discusses the difference between recall and recognition. Examples are presented to illustrate the difference. The implication of the difference is that modern training programs are computer managed, or computer assisted and make use of machine scored answer sheets. These modern systems have not been capable of testing recall-only recognition. The graduate of a training program needs to be able to recall rather than recognize. The system for testing recall by means of a machine scored answer sheet is explained and demonstrated.
