Iran Williams Implicit Association Test May 20, 2011 The result of the Implicit Association Test is as follows: Your data suggest a slight automatic preference for African American compared to European American. It also stated the following: Most respondents find it easier to associate African American with Bad and European American with Good compared to the reverse. Prejudice refers to prejudgment or making a decision without knowing the relevant facts. Sociologists own termed prejudice as an adaptive behavior. It can occur because of the following reason: - Biased views might be needed for survival. -not having enough time to form a lawful view about a potential foe before adopt a defensive stance. You can not specifically measure prejudice (ISFAQ.com). In my personal opinion, I believe that the questions were too open-ended to really give a valid assumption of what my true feelings were.

Unformatted text preview: In this day and age, it is extremely hard to measure prejudice. I have never wanted to measure prejudice, I just feel like it is or it is not. The act of prejudice is just there in my case as an African-American. Once you experience it, you really do not care to measure it. Sociologists use different methods to calculate prejudice. Before doing this assignment, I really did not know much about the Implicit Association Test. It is one of a few that I discovered in my research that measures prejudice. The other test or type of questions that measures prejudice is called Likert Scale. It has a series of questions to be evaluated by the sociologist to determine the level of prejudice or whatever topic is at hand. References: ISFAQ.com.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
