Tests: What You Need to Know: Home

Last Updated: Sep 21, 2020 1:33 PM


Libraries generally do not buy commercially published tests due to use and copyright restrictions imposed by publishers. This makes locating copies of tests difficult. There are, however, two things you can do to reduce frustration. First, decide whether you need an actual copy of the test or whether a detailed description will do (i.e. reliability and validity data, sample items, a review). Information about a test is usually much easier to find than the test itself. Second, decide whether you must have one particular test or if any relevant instrument will do.
