TMDB - Tests and Measures Database: Home

Compilation Volumes Containing Tests and Measures relevant to PSYCHOLOGY

Test and Measures Database (TMdb) for PSYCHOLOGY -

This list and much of the material included was abstracted from the original Tests and Measures Database created by Helen Hough, University of Arlington, TX (retired). Everyone in the social sciences is indebted to her for the enormous amount of work put into the original database. Thank you, Helen!

The purpose of this database is to enable researchers in psychology to identify volumes which contain full-text tests and measures, and to allow them to search by topic or title.

This list is not exhaustive; it is updated as new information becomes available and human resources are available to create updates.

This list is informational only - we do not provide the volumes or the tests.  To acquire volumes or tests, you may:
