Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) with Tests in Print (TIP) includes test reviews and a bibliography of all commercially available tests in English. Note: it does not contain the actual tests

Instructions for using MMY with TIP

ERIC is a core database for Education. There are three ways to access the ERIC database. The first two links below (EBSCO & ProQuest) go to commercial versions of the database that also give you access to the WSU Library's online journal subscriptions. The third link goes to the official, U.S. Department of Education version of ERIC, and does not offer access to the Library's subscriptions. You will be able to continue to use this version of the database when you are no longer students at WSU.

Note: PsycTESTS contains actual test instruments, not reviews like the Mental Measurements Yearbook.
