Culture-Free Test

A culture-free test is a test that is designed to be culture-neutral so that no one ethnic or cultural group will have an unfair advantage over another. This means steering clear of culture-specific knowledge such as questions that involve knowledge of folklore or literature specific to an ethnic group or even questions that demand too much specific knowledge about grammar and syntax.

For example, an intelligence test that uses questions specific to a cultural canon and language would be inaccurate if given to someone in another culture who had no experience with the culture that made the test. Using culture-free tests can help eliminate bias in testing and result in more valid test results.
