FAQ: Finding Psychological or Educational Evaluation Tests
The National Library of Medicine®(NLM®) has no database or Web site of psychological or evaluation tests.
NLM sources of information that may be helpful are:
- NLM MEDLINE/PubMed (articles may only discuss a test or test results; they rarely include the test instrument)
- NLM HSRR: Health Services and Sciences Research Resources
Information about psychological or educational evaluation tests--including scales, inventories or measurement tools--is in non-NLM databases (some requiring a subscription) and Web sites.
