The following bibliography is a selective guide to information sources in the J. Paul Leonard Library and to selected Internet sources on educational and psychological tests.
Please Note: The J. Paul Leonard Library does not maintain a test collection. Many reference books, indexes, and other tools are available, however, to locate descriptive information, critical reviews, or references related to the construction, validity and use of specific tests.
Many tests are copyrighted and restricted for purchase only by qualified, licensed professionals. The Psychology Department maintains a Psychology Test Library that is “available to qualified users including students with faculty permission and supervision.” For more information contact the Clinical Psychology Graduate Program.
Library research begins with your own in-depth analysis of the topic—for example, outlining the component parts of the topic, generating lists of keywords and variations, deciding how current, historical, scholarly or popular the articles or books should be, and identifying key researchers and journals in the field. For more information on how to successfully research your topic, see the RESEARCH HELP: DIY (Do-It-Yourself) guide.
