Psychological and Educational Tests & Testing

The American Psychology Association has an informative Guide to Finding Information about Psychological Tests.

Use Test in Print IX (currently on order for Fisher Library, in the meantime use Tests in Print VIII)  to find a test on a particular topic or by title, it can be used in combination in combination with PsycTESTS and Mental Measurements Yearbook, these databases will give you more information/reviews on particular tests.

The testing instruments themselves are available from the test publisher. Individuals may need to complete a test purchaser qualification form to prove they are competent to administer and interpret the test. Most test publishers are overseas, Australia's major test publisher is ACER.

Some tests are appended to academic journal articles, thus more accessible;  for a list of these consult the Directory of Unpublished Experimental Tests and Measures.

There are two Test Libraries on the Camperdown Campus at the University of Sydney, one is in the Sydney School of Education & Social Work and is primarily for the use of the Counselling Psychology students, the other is the Test Library in the School of Psychology and used by the clinical psychology higher degree students.
