Tests & Measurements

Databases to try


Mental Measurements Yearbook (EBSCO)
Designed for a broad audience, the MMY contains information essential for a complete evaluation of standardized tests within areas as psychology, education, business, and leadership. Also included is access to Test in Print (TIP), a comprehensive bibliography of all known commercially available tests that are currently in print in the English language.


TestLink: Test Collection at ETS
Offers the publisher and cost information as well as some indication of whether the test has been published in the literature, but does not offer the in-depth reviews.

Tips for Getting Started


You may come across various tests and measurements while studying:

  • Psychology
  • Healthcare Administration and other medical applications
  • Business Administration
  • Education and Liberal Studies

Doing research in these fields may require collecting your own data, as well as the use of a test or measurement tool designed to address the specific variables in that data collection.

Finding the right test or instrument can be difficult.  In most cases, tests are copyrighted and must be purchased from the publishers. In other cases, instruments can be obtained for free directly from the original authors or may be found published entirely within a journal article.
