Tests & Measures in PsycINFO

Find Tests, Measures and Inventories in PsycINFO

Another tip about finding Tests and Measures. When you get into PsycINFO, type in the domain of interest to you in the search box -- say, body image.
Then go to the Refine Search section below. Scroll down to the box "Classification Codes." Click on the selections

  • 2200 Psychometrics & Statistics & Methodology
  • 2220 Tests & Testing

This is a very "thoughtful" and necessary set of instructions for a specialized search. It's too bad I didn't know about this sooner since I was once assigned to look for "experimental" research articles in the social sciences, of which there are few and they are hard to find. These instructions would have helped.
