Psychological tests and measures

Locate specific tests

Step 1: Find out if your test is commercial or non-commercial

Search for your test in one of our psychological test databases:

Alternatively, look at the references of an article that used your test.  It should list the publication details. If a company is listed as the publisher, it's a commercial test.  If it's cited as being from a scholarly article, it should be non-commercial.

Step 2a: If it's not a commercial test, track down the full text.

See if the full text is available in PsycTESTS.  If it is, you will see a "PDF--full text button".

If the full text isn't there, it might be included as an appendix in Proquest Dissertations and Theses Global. Dissertations are especially likely to append the test questions.  Use phrase searching to find articles or dissertations that used the test you're looking for. 

If that doesn't work either, email the author of the test to ask for a copy.

Step 2b: If your test is only available for commercial purchase, buy it from the publisher.
