Identifying and Obtaining Tests and Measures

This guide is designed to get you started looking for a test, measure, or assessment.  Psychological Tests fall into 2 main categories, published and unpublished:

  • Published tests are commercially published and available for purchase by trained or registered professionals
  • Unpublished tests, on the other hand, are not commercially available. They are usually found referenced in journal articles or dissertations.

This guide will help you find information about both types of measures.
