Tests and measures are used in assessment and research and can take the form of surveys, questionnaires, instruments, scales, and more. Finding these materials can be particularly challenging. As you're navigating the resources on this page, note that:
- No single database provides full-text versions of all tests or measures, so this means that you will likely have to look in a few different places to find them.
- Some researchers and test creators publish their complete tests in books and journal articles. Others have sold the “rights” to their tests to publishing companies, and now the publishers distribute (sell) the tests.
- There are likely many options for relevant tests, depending on the people you want to study and what you want to learn about them.
