Below are various ways to locate evaluative information about tests and measures, as well as sometimes locating the measure itself.
SPU INDEX TABLE RESOURCES : This link identifies books that evaluate tests and measures by topic, and sometimes provide examples of the measures themselves. They are located on the first index table on the main floor of the library. They can only be used in the library.
The PsycINFO database has a field called TM Tests and Measures, identifying journal articles and book chapters that use specific tests or measures. Restrict your search to that limiter in "Select a field." To find if the test itself is available, add the word "Appended" to the end of the name of the measure when constructing your search. Under INDEXES, you can 'Browse the INDEXES' drop-down field 'Tests and Measures' to find an alphabetical list of ways test names are listed, including the number of articles involved.
1. Search SPU WorldCat and Beyond by keyword for topic or test name (a measure may be in a book's appendix).
2. Search for websites via Google under the measure's specific title in quotations " " to see if it is available online.
3. Consult SPU Psychology faculty; they may know of a measure on your topic and how to get it.
