Best Bet: Try searching ProQuest Dissertations & Theses: Full Text . Dissertations sometimes contain the instrument used, often in an appendix. If you are unable to find the instrument in this database, proceed to the next step. If you find the instrument in this database and wish to use it in your research, you must obtain permission, where applicable, to use the instrument.
Locate the test publisher if searching for a commercially available test to purchase. Directories of test publisher addresses appear in standard measurement works, such as Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY), TIP, or also in publishers’ catalogs. Or, try Google for publisher information.
To locate the full-text, try searching subject-appropriate databases, such as CINAHL , PsycINFO , ERIC , PubMed, or PsycTESTS to identify journal articles. Books or dissertations listed in library catalogs may also include the full-text of some instruments. REDCap's “REDCap Shared Library,” often provides access to validated instruments in the public domain. Or try Google, as some tests may appear on the Internet.
If no full-text available, contact the author who created the test.
