Bias In Standard Psychological Tests

This section reviews the present status of the MMPI/MMPI-2. RCS, and TAT for cross-cultural and multicultural assessment with particular emphasis on reduction of bias in test construction, more adequate use of available normative data, some mechanics for increasing reliability of interpretations, and current research methodologies applicable to each test. This review separates the interim objective of this chapter—bias reduction—from the long-term issue of whether or not bias reduction per se can serve the best interest of multicultural populations in the United States.
