Description

An index to 139 print compilations, web sites and other resources for test instruments with nearly 14,000 tests and measurements compiled from 1967 - 2013.  This resource does not include the tests but indexes them in order to find them in other published resources. While not an exhaustive index this is an excellent resource to help those who are searching for reliable instruments. It also includes many instruments outside of the social sciences, including many in the health sciences. Tests and Measures in the Social Sciences was developed and is maintained by Helen Hough of the University of Texas at Arlington.
