Tests, Scales and Measurements
Finding complete instruments (tests or scales) not included in APA's PsycTests is challenging. In general, test publishers do not allow libraries to buy buy tests and circulate them like we do books; instead they sell them to researchers on an individual basis. Some full-text tests are available in journals, dissertations and books. The library reference collection contains several print compilations of full-text tests available in the public domain. See Tests in Printed Books for the titles and call numbers.
