Tests and other measures fall into two categories:

1) Readily accessible tests, scales, questionnaires, measures, etc. found in books such as test compendia and compilation volumes and in journal articles found by using specific databases such as PsycINFO, CINAHL, and ERIC).

2) Tests that are proprietary: those currently available are described and reviewed in the Mental Measurements Yearbook. A list of these tests is available from the Buros Institute of Mental Measurements. If you are looking for a specific measure by name, check the list or MMY first to determine whether it is proprietary, who publishes it, and contact information.

If the test you need is listed in the MMY, expect to meet criteria for qualification prior to purchasing and administering a test (contact information is included in the MMY entry on each test). For example CPP, Inc., provider of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®), outlines certification requirements.

 

Databases for Tests and Measures:

Mental Measurements Yearbook


Use the MMY for finding information about and reviews of Proprietary measures.
From the Buros Institute of Mental Measurements, MMY describes more than 2,000 commercially available educational, personality, aptitude, neuropsychological, achievement and intelligence standardized tests. Each entry includes test name and classification; author(s); publisher, publication date; price; time requirements; score descriptions; levels; and intended populations. It does not contain tests!

PsycINFO

ETS Tests in Microfiche [Education / Psychology] Tests in Microfiche is an annual series of research instruments that have been cited in the educational and psychological literature. They are located in PCL Level 1 microfiche and shelved by call number MCFICHE 2285 [test number], for example:

"MCFICHE 2285 TCO20387"

Test numbers can be obtained from any of the following sources:

  • ETS Tests in Microfiche Collection list of full instruments (as of Dec. 2004) [1263 fulltext instruments] is available from Helen Hough's Tests and Measures in the Social Sciences, an excellent resources for locating tests.

Other sources for researching and identifying tests, scales, measures, and other instruments:

A complementary tool that does "deep indexing" of books that may in some cases only include one or two instruments, entitled the "SDSU Test Finder"  developed by Mark Stover at San Diego State University Library. Stover has also developed a related tool which indexes complete tests and instruments found in the journal literature. It indexes articles from the psychology journal literature, journal articles from nursing, social work, sociology, education, communication, and management. Stover notes that this tool is still in development.
