Psychological tests

Psychological tests are standardized measures of a psychological variable. Many tests are commercially published, which means they often come with a price tag. In addition to being costly, many tests are not available without having  the professional credentials. Access to tests may be restricted to registered psychologists only and not available for students.

Resources:

BUROS center for testing: This website allows you to search for test reviews online by title or category. 

 Mental Measurements Yearbook (See: REF LB 1131 B7). You will not locate the test itself, but rather the test's author, title, purpose, publisher's address, and the review of the test.

 PsychInfo: type 'appended' in one of the search boxes and select 'Tests & Measures' from the drop down menu beside the search box. This will narrow results to included articles with tests appended.
