Description This review is focused on the issues of equivalence of the test methods and their adaptation from one culture into another. The emphasis is placed on the identification of the reserves of Czech psychological assessment in the area of minorities testing, and on methodological procedures common in cross-cultural psychology, which can be used in the process of test adaptation, in order to achieve the best possible validity of the test for the target population. The beginning of the article is concerned with cultural universality of psychological constructs, various types of test bias and test equivalence. Furthermore, specific types of test adaptations, which are needed in order to ensure a creation of culturally equivalent version of psychological test, are described in step-by-step approach.
