Database Trial: PsycTESTS

Students are constantly looking for tests and measures to use as in their research and this 30 day  trial to PsycTESTS offers more than 2,000 standardized and published tests at  http://psycnet.apa. Take a look! Tell me what you think!

PsycTESTS serves as a repository for the full text of psychological tests and measures
as well as a rich source of structured information about the tests. A wide variety of test
types are included in PsycTESTS, including achievement and aptitude tests, intelligence
tests, tests of cognitive functioning, occupational tests, personality tests, and so on.

The database includes
■ The full text of psychological tests and measures, as available
■ Full bibliographic records and descriptive summaries of tests in each record
■ Descriptive summaries of commercially available tests with links to the publisher
■ A special interactive segment with tests from the Archives of the History of
American Psychology, for which APA has not yet identified literature

PsycTESTS includes three kinds of tests:

  • Unpublished tests ( those developed by researchers for use in their work but not made commercially available)
  • Tests from the Archives of the History of American Psychology at the University of Akron. These tests may not be literature based.
  • Commercially available tests

All records in PsycTESTS are indexed and include fields for validity and reliability data
(when available), test purpose, construct, format, number of items, and more.
