This chapter discusses how two Web-based tools that are used primarily to measure implicit racial bias can also be used to measure similar bias based on gender, sexual orientation, and age, among others. Specifically, it describes two reaction time demonstration tasks that utilize the Implicit Association Test and the Police Officer's Dilemma. In both of these tasks, the technology teaches students about content relevant to the courses in which they are used. Because these tasks require students to make judgments about Black and White target persons and provide feedback about students' performance, they afford instructors who use them an opportunity to discuss the split-second decisions people make about members of racial minority groups and the real-life consequences of those decisions.
