Cultural Health Tests

Welcome to Cultural Health University

This space will over time link you to basic Cultural Health information and its main feature will be the test center where you can test yourself for various types of Cultural Poisoning and degrees of Cultural Health.

What are these test? Let's Go To The Video Tape

The beginning of any self education process begins with self-assessment. This is also true of Cultural Literacy. To that end the test center below is provided to aid you in your Cultural Health self-assessment process. You should think about what you believe your state of Cultural Health to be as it relates to the test you are about to take. Then compare your thoughts to the results these psychological professionals provide you with and then draw your own conclusions as to where you are and were you need to be in your cultural orientation. 

Project Implicit has some 90 different IAT tests and  Wikipedia can give you more information about the methodology of these tests. Here at Cultural Health U we will be focusing on the Ethnic ("race") related tests only. When at the project, if you have time and the moral constitution, I encourage you to look around, some of these test are most interesting and eye opening. 


Do not proceed from this point if you are culturally sensitive

Important disclaimer: In reporting to you results of any IAT test that you take, we will mention possible interpretations that have a basis in research done (at the University of Washington, University of Virginia, Harvard University, and Yale University) with these tests. However, these Universities, as well as the individual researchers who have contributed to this site, make no claim for the validity of these suggested interpretations. If you are unprepared to encounter interpretations that you might find objectionable, please do not proceed further.

Hit the test link below and scroll down to the Race IAT

"Race" ('Black - White' IAT). This IAT requires the ability to distinguish faces of European and African origin. It indicates that most Americans have an automatic preference for white over black.

How did you do on the test? Stop back by and let us know and lets talk. Did you take one of the other tests what did you learn?

Under construction stay tuned.
