The ability to select the current oldest item in a homogeneous series of items was examined in 250-item sequences with an “age” range of 1–15 items. Approximately 50% of the responses were correct, and the probability of a correct response increased linearly with the age of the correct response. The memory requirements of the task were discussed and compared with other covert retention tasks.
