Identifying Tests on a Particular Topic

Occasionally tests appear on the web, if the author is willing to share them. Search by title or author, if you know where the person works. For assistance locating tests, request a research consultation with me using the contact information on the first page of this guide.

Test construction, validity, bias, alternative assessment, computerized testing, graduation requirements, etc., are often discussed in books and articles.
