The Buros Center for Testing states in the FAQ portion of their website that, “the Mental Measurements Yearbook includes timely, consumer-oriented test reviews, providing evaluative information to promote and encourage informed test selection. Typical MMY test entries include descriptive information and two reviews written by professionals in selected fields.”
They go on to explain that the “Tests in Print (TIP) serves as a comprehensive bibliography to all known commercially available tests that are currently in print in the English language. Information includes test purpose, test publisher, in-print status, price, test acronym, intended test population, administration times, publication date(s), and test author(s). Tests in Print also guides readers to candidly critical test reviews published in the Mental Measurements Yearbook series.”
You won’t find actual tests in this database, but you will find the information you need to determine if this is the test you need for your research or project. You may then follow up with the test publisher to determine how to obtain the actual test.
If you are not able to locate the test you need, please contact the Reference Desk (firstname.lastname@example.org or 844.684.0456) and we can help you locate it.
