"poor kids are just as talented as white kids"


What About Order Effects? One very common question is about the order of the parts of the IAT. The answer is yes, the order in which you take the test can influence your overall results. But, the effect is very small. So if you first pair Black Americans + Weapons and then pair White Americans + Weapons, your results might show just a tiny bit more of an association between Black Americans and Weapons than it would have if you had done the reverse pairing first. One way that we try to minimize this order effect is by giving more practice trials before the second pairing than we did before the first pairing. It is also important to know that each participant is randomly assigned to an order, so half of test-takers complete Black Americans + Weapons first and then White Americans + Weapons, and the other half of test-takers get the opposite order.
