This subject research guide serves as a roadmap to the psychology resources available at the Rutgers University Libraries

Finding Copies of Tests

The Rutgers University Libraries does not have a test collection for student or faculty borrowing. Published tests are not available through the libraries.

Tests and Measures Information

Tests and Measures

 "Published" or commercially available tests, and their associated materials, are those tests available for sale to qualified researchers. Information on those tests may often be found through a simple internet search. Many "unpublished," or freely available tests may sometimes be found in full text on the web.

"Mental Measurements Yearbook" and its companion index "Tests In Print" are available in print in many of our libraries. However, the print is no longer up to date as the library now subscribes to the online Mental Measurements Yearbook. This resources is located on our Databases list on the library homepage.

PsycINFO provides references to background literature about tests, but does not include the full text of the tests themselves. When using PsycINFO, please see this short video on how to identify materials about tests in the database. For a complete listing of reference materials about tests owned by the Libraries, and for pointers to other resources, please see Karen Hartman's excellent guide to Finding Tests and Measures.

Rutgers does not subscribe to the APA database PsycTESTS, which is a "one stop shop" for identifying both published and unpublished tests. This resource, a subscription product, contains the full text of many of the unpublished tests. This resource has continued its development and RUL at this point does not subscribe but is keeping PsycTESTS in mind for future possible acquisitions. Please let Laura Mullen ( if you are a Rutgers faculty member and would like us to subscribe to PsycTESTS.
