Reports the elimination of some ambiguities in the scoring procedure for the Logical Memory (LM) subtest of the Wechsler Memory Scale using a cued recall technique for eliciting responses. A cued recall technique discriminated significantly better than the LM subtest between memory-impaired and control groups. All Ss were 50-64 yr old males. This appears to have been due to the fact that on LM, controls showed worse performance on the final sections of the memory passages, whereas this did not occur in cued recall.
