Abstract: The results of this paper arose from an investigation of the class of $ \Sigma $-modules, i.e. those modules $ M$ for which $ {\operatorname{Hom} _R}(M, - )$ commutes with direct sums. A module $ T$ is called a test module if $ {\operatorname{Hom} _R}(M, - )$ commutes with direct sums of copies of $ T$ only when $ M$ is a $ \Sigma $-module. Test modules are characterized and their relation to cogenerators is investigated.
