This is a brief guide to searching for reviews and citations about tests and measurements in psychology and education at the Education Psychology Library at the University of California, Berkeley.
Except for tests in the public domain that appear in books that compile such instruments, the Education Psychology Library does not maintain a collection of tests still under copyright. Tests can be identified, and sometimes found in full-text, by using databases and indexes, such as Buros Mental Measurements and PsycInfo. EDP does subscribe to APA's new PsycTests which is a research database that provides access to psychological tests, measures, scales, surveys, and other assessments as well as descriptive information about the test and its development and administration. The EDP Reference collection does contain several print compilations of full-text tests and scales available in the public domain, as well as indexes to tests, test reviews and literature. These compilations and indexes are indicated below.
