Getting a Copy, Published and Unpublished Tests and Measures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 Unpublished tests may be available in books or journals.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 @ USC Libraries with the test title. We've entered contents notes for some books that include instruments.
"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.
