The participants were 392 graduates from an American high school over a 50 year period who were shown pictures from their yearbooks. Participants were divided into 2 groups: in the recognition group they were asked to select the correct name from a list of names for each photo; and the recognition group they were asked to remember the names of the people in the photos without being given a list of possible names. The recognition group were 90% accurate 14 years after graduation, dropping to 60% accuracy 47 years after graduation. The recall group were 60% accurate 7 years after graduation and less than 20% after 47 years. The conclusion from this is that people evan remember creation types of information for almost an entire lifetime (47 years after graduation is almost a lifetime), and that recognition memory tasks based on recognition seem to be better than ones based on
