Indexes / Abstracts of Tests and Measures

ETS TEST COLLECTION ALSO INDEXES FREE “RESEARCH TESTS”.  These are called TIM (Tests in Microfiche).  Hofstra has the microfiche cards which contain the test and relevant information.  The tests can be searched in ETS, and then retrieved at the Axinn Library Reference Desk.  TIM tests are also indexed in some of the other materials below, and will be identified with the TIM number by which the test can be retrieved at the Reference Desk.
