A number of methods which can be used to scan free recall lists are described. These methods will be of use in an initial exploratory analysis of responses with a view to checking the data before proceeding with more sophisticated analyses. The aim is to bring atypical recall patterns to the attention of the experimenter so that any aberrant data may be excluded if necessary or to allow such patterns to be studied further.
