Problems in transferring tests from one context to another arise from construct-, method-, or item- level bias. Using examples from research in different parts of the world, the author highlights and discusses specific problems in transferring tests across cultures. A systematic approach to making adaptations to tests and procedures to ensure their suitability in a new cultural context is presented. The approach has a strong focus on community involvement and the use of mixed method approaches during the test adaptation process.
