Assessing the assessment tools:
  1. Begin:
  2. Go to All Subject Guides
  3. Select Psychology
  4. Under Selected eBooks choose: Mental Measurements Yearbook – search by the area you wish to assess: trauma, personality, eating disorders, etc. You will retrieve a list of assessment tools with reviews included.
Find articles and research reports on a test:
  1. Return to Psychology
  2. Select either PsychInfo or PsychArticles
  3. Search by your test inventory title. You may need to change the search default to subject heading
  4. In the second search field add "Test Validity" or "Test Reliability."
  5. Change the default to subject terms. This strategy should retrieve articles that actually discuss the instrument.
