Tests and measurements are used in many professions to measure attributes of human behavior. This guide is geared toward psychological, sociological and educational tests, which may be published or unpublished:
- Unpublished: Typically, tests that are not yet widely used and may not have established validity and reliability. Such tools are sometimes printed in articles or books.
- Published: Widely-used tests with established validity, reliability and norms; usually commercially published and must be ordered or purchased from a publisher
Specific tests and measurements can be very difficult to find. In many cases, you will find only a discussion of the test, not the test itself.
FAQ/Finding Information about Psychological Tests
Information on finding both published and unpublished tests and measurements is provided on this web site developed by the American Psychological Association.
