This guide is designed to serve as a tool to help one get information about published and unpublished educational, psychological, and vocational tests and measurements. Another purpose of the guide is that of providing access to information about the general subject of testing.
The University Library does not keep any psychological tests but does have databases (e.g. PsycINFO, PsycARTICLES, ERIC, and PubMed) and reference books with descriptions, reviews and critiques of testing instruments. The users can also locate contact information about the publishers of the tests that they are seeking. With this information, the user will learn the cost and availability of the tests, and how to go about getting them.
Keep in mind of the following information:
*Published: Widely-used tests with established validity, reliability and norms (e.g., standardized tests); usually commercially published and must be ordered or purchased from a publisher.
**Non-published: Non-commercial tests that have been developed or modified for controlled research studies. Some may have established validity and reliability, some may not. Sometimes printed in articles or books.
