You can find some practice or sample tests in the PsycTESTS database. You can locate this database by clicking on the letter P of the A-Z Database List. You may view a tutorial here on how to locate databases using our A-Z Database List.
You may also want to try our database PrepStep (formerly Learning Express Library), especially if it’s an education or career related test. This one is also located under letter P of the A-Z Database List.
If you are unable to locate it in either of these databases, please try the Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print database (click on letter M from the A-Z Database List) to see if your test is listed there. Although it won’t have the full test, it will provide the publisher information and Website where the test may be purchased.
If your test has been reviewed in the Mental Measurements Yearbook, you may also find a list of References at the end which may potentially have your test as an appendix. You can use our Multi-Search tool to try and track these down by copying and pasting the article or book titles into the search box on the library home page OR contact a librarian for more assistance.
If you are looking for unpublished tests on the Internet, you might try the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) which provides more than 325 personality scales and measures, by experts, in the public domain and therefore it is freely available for use. It includes information on reliability, validity, guidance on how to administer and score, and how to cite the resource.
