Objective Test

An objective test is intended to measure an individual's abilities and to be scored without bias or judgment. Sometimes there is confusion that the test itself is not biased, but it is important to remember that the impartiality of the exam is based on the scoring procedures rather than on the questions or on the structure of the test. An objective test is distinct from subjective or projective tests, which are more prone to bias in scoring.
