About Measurement Tools

Tests, instruments, and scales focus on measuring outcomes. Sometimes you can view a test because it has been published in a journal article or dissertation. However, tests are copyrighted. If you cannot find the full-text of the test via a database such as PsycTESTS or from journal articles, you may have to purchase the test directly from the publisher. The following tutorials can help you learn more.
