What Is PsycTESTS?

PsycTESTS is an electronic database providing descriptive summaries, full text, and relevant citations on the development and assessment of tests and measures that can be used in research and teaching. The database serves as a repository for the full text of psychological tests and measures as well as a source of structured information about tests of relevance to psychologists and professionals in related fields such as psychiatry, management, business, education, social science, neuroscience, law, medicine, and social work.

Updated monthly, PsycTESTS includes a wide variety of test types: achievement and aptitude tests, intelligence tests, tests of cognitive functioning, occupational tests, personality tests, and more. These include previously unpublished measures, tests developed by psychologists for which no source document has been located, and information about published tests available from commercial publishers. All records in PsycTESTS are indexed and include fields for validity and reliability data (when available), test purpose, construct, format, number of items, and more.

The database includes

  • the full content of psychological tests and measures, as available
  • full bibliographic records and descriptive summaries of tests in each record
  • descriptive summaries of commercially available tests with links to the publisher
