Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print

  • Contains information about and reviews of English-language standardized tests covering educational skills, personality, vocational aptitude, psychology and related areas. It is based on the print version of the Buros Institute's Mental Measurements Yearbooks.
  • Provides information about ordering the tests.
  • NOTE: Commercially produced tests are difficult to borrow and are often restricted in who can see them. Getting a particular test may be difficult unless you have access to them through a school system.

Health and Psychosocial Instruments (HAPI)

  • Health and Psychosocial Instruments provides ready access to information on measurement instruments (i.e., questionnaires, interview schedules, checklists, index measures, rating scales, projective techniques, tests) in the health fields, psychosocial sciences, and organizational behavior.
  • HAPI gives for each test such information as the author(s), the title of the resource in which the measurement instrument appears, an abstract, subject descriptors, and the number of questions. HAPI does not include the measurement instrument itself


  • International in scope, this resource provides access to thousands of actual test instruments, most of which are available for immediate download and use in teaching and research.
  • PsycTESTS is an authoritative source of structured information about tests of relevance to psychologists and professionals in related fields such as education, social science, neuroscience, and social work.
