Finding Tests and Measurements: Home

A pathfinder to identifying and finding tests and measures in the social sciences.


Identifying and finding tests and measures are two different processes.

Identifying refers to locating a test or measure which might be suitable for your research. There are many aids available to assist you in identifying tests and measures by criteria.

Finding refers to tracking down a copy of the actual measurement. Finding a measure that you have identified can be tricky and challenging, often depending on if that measure was published or unpublished.

This guide can help you identify and find tests and measures.

There are several parts to this guide:

  • Identifying Tests
  • Finding Tests
  • Finding Tests in Databases
  • Using Tests/Measures
