Harvard Implicit Association Test

This website presents a method that demonstrates unconscious bias much more convincingly than has been possible with previous methods. This new method is called the Implicit Association Test (or IAT for short). It is used, in particular, by the UK Royal Society to help identify unconscious bias as part of its efforts to ensure fairness in all its ranking/selection procedures, including election of new fellows.

The test includes a 'gender' component, which takes around 10 minutes to complete. After some initial questions, the test involves quickly answering questions by single key strokes. Your results are returned to you, and then information is provided on how your responses compare to the average responses of others taking that test.
