Finding Tests

Finding tests can be difficult and sometimes only a brief overview of the test is available. Moreover, in order to get access to a commercial test you must be a licensed professional and these tests may only be available for purchase. Some of the unpublished tests (non-commercial tests) may be available in books, journal articles, reports, or online. Locating these tests may take some time and a few of these tests are also available through PsycINFO.

In PsycINFO, choose the "Advanced Search" tab and from the drop-down menu for Select a Field -- choose "Tests and Measures".

If you know the name of the test, click on Advanced Search and then scroll down to "Tests and Measurements". Enter the name of the test in the search box and click Search.

You can also browse the "Tests & Measures" index:
