Resources with Some Full-Texts of Instruments

Important to know before you start!  

  • Finding Tests can be very time consuming!  Ask a librarian for help if you aren't finding what you need!
  • Many tests are only available commercially - you can request a free copy for educational purposes, but are not guaranteed access or a response.

The full texts of some instruments are freely available in academic articles or in the appendecies of some dissertations and theses.  These databases may also contain articles that review or assess various instruments.

First confirm the name of the instrument using ETS Test Link (or Google)

Then search for the instrument by name in the most subject appropriate database from the suggestions below
