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.

The Rush Rhees Reference Department has a small collection of sample educational and psychological tests and test manuals available for review use only. Print tests may not be copied, borrowed, or used to administer the test because of copyright restrictions and special purchase agreements. Tests on microfiche may be copied; any reference to them should credit the authors who appear on the first frame of the fiche. Other permitted uses are explained on the fiche.

Tests in this collection are not listed in the library's Catalog. To access this collection, ask at the Q&i Desk or contact me via the contact information on the first page of this guide. TESTS ARE STORED OFF-SITE AT THE ANNEX, SO NEED TO BE REQUESTED AT LEAST THE DAY BEFORE YOU NEED THEM. When they arrive, you'll need to leave your name and phone number while you have the tests.

NOTE: Tests for UR courses are not in this collection.
