Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

A test is considered biased if it disadvantages certain groups of individuals over others. On the same way, the standard measurement allows us to estimate the level of inaccuracy in a test. The larger the standard error of measurement, the greater uncertainty in the test.  Misinterpreting test results may also show some inaccuracy.

These can e avoided by taking good interpretations of test results. The researcher should not hold favors to any group on the issues of colour or race, or even the environment.


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
