PsycTESTS is a research database from the American Psychological Association (APA) that provides access to more than 8,000 psychological tests, measures, scales, surveys, and other assessments as well as descriptive information about the test and its development and administration. All records include a summary that describes the test, with its purpose and some history of its development. Most records include the actual test instrument. Tests come from journals, books, dissertations, websites, and the Archives of the History of American Psychology Test Collection. Commercially available tests indexed by APA are also included, with links to purchase the instrument. Many records include documentation such as instructions or scoring sheets. Textual information is in printable PDF; some tests are multi-media or computer software. A permissions field alerts users to the tests they can use for research or teaching without formal permission; the majority of tests in the database can be used without formal permission. Although tests date back to 1910, 74% are from 1990 and later. (Updated monthly)
