Finding an Instrument That Measures x, y or z (available on-campus only)


  •   Buros Institute classifies tests in Mental Measurements Yearbook (since 9th edition) into 19 major categories.
  •   Mental Measurements Yearbook, Score Index [click on title to see the library locations] 
     Z5814.P8 B932, latest edition in Reference.  There's no cumulative index so you must consult each edition.  The Score Index lists the actual variables measured by the test.  To do the best search, think up alternate terms for the variable you wish to measure.
  •  Tests:  A Comprehensive Reference for Assessments in Psychology, Education, and Business [click on title to see the library locations]  BF 176.T43 in Reference
    Meant as a quick and easy guide for major tests, it has some special features that could be helpful (foreign language availability index and indexes of tests suitable for special populations).
  •   Search the literature from relevant fields using the TCC Library's Articles & Databases (CINAHL, PsycINFO, and ERIC, etc.) to find what instruments other researchers have used. 
  •   Consult books about tests in specialized areas.  Also take a look at the Library's catalog searches for books:
educational tests and measurements      language and languages--ability testing
ability--testing      norm referenced tests
achievement tests      personality tests
character tests      psychological tests
competency based educational tests      psychological tests for children
criterion referenced tests      social surveys
health surveys      sociometry
