Cultural Adoption Quiz

As an introduction to our current chapter, students took a brief online quiz that sought to identify how strongly they have adopted the values of their parents. These quizzes are available at implicit.harvard.edu and take about five minutes to complete.

I think the idea that it was Harvard and that they were participating in an actual psychological study was exciting to them. Several found that they were not as radical as they had hoped but we did have some variety of results within the class.
