Tests and Measures: Selecting a Test

Finding an Instrument That Measures x, y or z

  • Search the literature from relevant fields using the Libraries' databases (PsycINFO, SocINDEX with Full Text, ERIC, etc.) to find what instruments other researchers have used.  PsycINFO allows searching by instrument.  
  • Consult books about tests in specialized areas.  Search the library catalog by subject (ie. addiction, depression, marriage and family counseling, school counseling, etc.). Under the tab "Books with full-text tests" above, you will find some titles along with suggested library catalog searches.
