Abstract:

Observers can learn to identify 65 different color chips with less than 5 percent error in 40 to 55 hours of study when the chips are presented singly. With the stimulus materials used in the study chips from the Munsell Student Set, two different distributions of the chips within the set produced essentially equivalent results. Presentation of more than one chip simultaneously, after prolonged study with single-chip presentation, had little effect on some observers but seemed to make the identification problem much more difficult for others.
