Shapiro Library offers several resources for find practice or sample tests. Several of these resources are geared towards tests related to psychology. However, we also offer career and education-related tests. 

  • PrepStep (formerly Learning Express Library) provides a comprehensive selection of educational resources - including interactive tutorials, practice exams, flashcards, articles and e-books—for basic skills mastery, academic success, job preparation, and career advancement.
  • PsycTests - EBSCO. You can find some practice or sample tests in the PsycTESTS database.  For more information on how to use this database check out the APA's "Getting Started with PsycTESTS on EBSCOhost".
  • Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print - EBSCO provides information about tests. Although it won’t have the full test, it will provide the publisher information and website where the test may be purchased. 

More information:

  • 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  • If you are looking for unpublished tests on the Internet, you might try the International Personality Item Pool (IPIP) which provides more than 325 personality scales and measures, by experts,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.
