Tests and Measures at Hofstra University: Other Tests & Measures at Hofstra

This guide provides information on understanding and identifying commercial and research tests and measures. It also provides information on tests for which the full-text is available via Hofstra, and how to access those tests.

Smaller Collections of Tests and Measures available at Hofstra

The following is a list of CIRCULATING books which contain relatively small numbers  of actual research tests in each book.

  • These books are all located in AXINN STACKS floors 4-8 of Axinn Library.
  • I STRONGLY SUGGEST that you read the front matter (e.g., foreword, preface, introduction, informational chapters) in each source as it usually provides valuable information.
  • Below each title and call number, there is a link to a webpage which lists what tests are in that book.  A big THANK YOU to Helen Hough of UT-Austin for creating the Tests and Measures Database to which the links point!!

In addition to browsing the items below, you may also SEARCH the UT-Austin site by keyword, but you MUST use "TMDB" (without quotations" as one of your keywords (e.g., TMDB perinatal grief).

  • Some instruments are included in several compilation volumes, so look if several titles are presented, look for a title we own. 
  • Be aware that you may be directed only to a title which we do not own; in this case, interlibrary-loan the item.  If you cannot inter-library loan the item, contact Deborah Dolan at
