First Test: Arab-Muslim test
Why did you choose this test? I chose this test since it caught my attention as soon as I saw the list and was curious about what it would be like. I also wanted to know what kind of bias I would have when it came to this topic.
What is the result you were expecting? Was it the result you got? Honestly, I mainly expected to be biased towards Arab-Muslims, however the results showed that I was fairly balanced between both with a small amount leaning towards Arab-Muslims which I found surprising.
How do you feel about the results you got? What did you learn? I was happy to know that I was not biased towards both parties, and it made me realize that it is not necessary to be biased towards the group or religion you are in.
How credible do you think the IAT is and why? I don’t think it is credible to be honest, since part of he test was having you answer the questions as fast as you can, and some of the answers may have been due to the stress of needing to answer fast and not some unconscious bias that we have.
Second Test: Age Test

Why did you choose this test? I had never previously thought that I could have a bias towards age so I was curious to see what the results would be.
What is the result you were expecting? Was it the result you got? I was expecting to see little to no difference or bias towards both parties, however I found that I had more of an automatic preference towards young people.
How do you feel about the results you got? What did you learn? I was very surprised when I saw the results since I never thought of having bias regarding age.This showed me that bias can come in many different forms.
How credible do you think the IAT is and why? I still don’t think it is credible for the same reason as before as well as the fact that the images they got for young people and elderly people where very low quality so it was hard to distinguish between them while trying to answer quickly.
