So knowing about boats is considered "cultural bias"? Pretty sure they still teach about boats in school, like the Mayflower for one big example (EDIT: Actually, I can think of a ton of examples of boats and oarsman we were exposed to in school)? How sad. You'd think having a wide array of knowledge is important, and something colleges and businesses would want their students/employees to have. And the only way to know what those students/employees know is to test them. No win for anyone if questions like that are removed.
Seems a lot like racism. Dang near anything can be tossed in there on a whim.
3) The test is heavily weighted towards native english speakers. Two-thirds of the reading portion was vocab with only one-third being reading comprehension. Many of the math questions were word problems written in english and could easily be problematic for non-english speakers.
