Sources of Information on Tests

If you are looking for information on psychological or educational tests, the following sources are good places to start.

Mental Measurements Yearbook With Tests in Print
This is the most comprehensive resource for information on tests’ norms, content and scoring, validity, and reliability. Select "Test Name" from the search-box drop-down menu and search for the test of your choice.

Unlike Mental Measurements, PsycTests has both descriptive summaries of tests (taken mostly from the peer-reviewed literature) and also the full text of many tests. This is the best source to search for the full text of a desired measure.

PsycINFO records the tests and measures used in the studies it indexes. To search for studies that use a particular test, select “Test and Measure” from the search drop-down menu and type the name of the test.
