Testing, testing, where are the tests...

We sometimes have people looking for this test or that, an educational measurement test, or a psychological test, like the well known Myer-Briggs test. The answer to this question starts with our catalog. If you are looking for a particular test, search it in the catalog by name of test, like you might search for a book title. If we own it, it will come up; generally the tests are on reserve, behind the circulation desk. Unlike books though, if we don't own the test it may be hard to get through interlibrary loan, because of the restrictions often placed on the distribution of and access to tests by their creators.

A good general source of information on tests, with reviews of the tests and so forth, is Mental Measurements Yearbook.
