Tests and Measures

Getting a Copy, Published and Unpublished Tests and Measures
Published means the instrument is commercially available from a test publisher.  Unpublished tests may be available in books or journals.  There are ethical considerations for using either type of test.

Where to look

Can you find it online?
There's a database of tests and some databases can lead you to tests published in articles.

 

Tips for searching these databases for articles that include tests and measures:

Could it be in a book?
Try searching Find It @ UofSC Libraries with the test title. We've entered contents notes for some books that include instruments.

 For example:
"black male experiences measure"     "instrumental activities of daily living scale"   "willingness to tolerate nonconformists"

All the contents notes begin with the phrase "Tests/Measurements covered in this book" so that's another way to search for these books.
