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.
