In our second lecture on Prejudice, we discussed the Implicit Association Test (IAT). In fact, I asked you to take a low-tech version of the test as part of that lecture. And you can take multiple versions of the test on-line at the Project Implicit website.
I promised in that lecture more opportunity to discuss the IAT. Well, here we are. What do you make of the demonstration we did as part of that lecture? Do you buy the IAT as a measure of implicit bias? Why or why not? If not, what do you think the IAT is actually measuring? What other questions do you want to see answers to in trying to come to conclusions about the IAT?
