Psychological Tests and Assessments Resource

This searchable database contains detailed descriptions and comparison information for approximately 1500 psychological tests for use with children and adolescents, plus tutorials to assist in test selection and development, evaluation, and selection. Typically if a researcher, mental health practitioner, or student needs to identify a specific type of test for admininstration they have to conduct extensive literature searches and locate the author or publisher of the test. This database allows the user to simply search for a test by specifying key test criteria or keywords and a list of matching tests is displayed. The user can compare tests, see detailed information on each test, and in most cases quickly locate and purchase the test. This is the only comprehensive database of psychological tests for this population, including unpublished tests, and was created from a comprehensive search of the scientific literature from the last decade.

 

The only comprehensive database of both published and unpublished psychological tests for children and adolescents.
