Psychology: Locating Tests and Instruments

How to locate relevant tests on your topic

The Union University Library subscribes to two databases which can help you locate tests and instruments which can be used to gather information:
  • Mental Measurements Yearbook / Tests in Print
  • Health and Psychosocial Instruments
To access either of these databases, you will need to go through the Library's database page. If you are off-campus, you will have the additional step of logging in with your UU credentials.
It should be noted that these databases provide you with access to the titles of tests but not to the content of those tests. In order to actually use the test, generally speaking you have to locate it elsewhere or order it from the author / publisher.
