Project Implicit

image-implictbiasstereotypesFounded in 1998, Project Implicit seeks to aid us in uncovering and understanding our unconscious biases.  The group has created several tests that include race, weight, disability and religion.  Their goal is “educate the public about hidden biases and to provide a virtual laboratory for collecting data on the Internet.”

While the test is not graded, the site does provide interpretations of the results.  The test is known as the implicit association test or IAT.  To take the test on implicit bias concerning race, also known as the African American – European American IAT, click here.
