Finding Psychological Tests and Measures

This guide provides information on locating psychology tests and measures.

Test directories

Test directories can be searched for information about published psychological tests. Directories usually include background information about tests (i.e. purpose, creator, structure) as well as information concerning their publication (i.e. publisher, date of publication, cost, availability for purchase.) Some may include evaluations of the test.

Note: Test directories do not provide access to the tests themselves.

The Library provides access to both online test directories and in print test directories.
