Test Collection

The Test Collection of over 1600 tests is located behind the Circulation Desk on the first floor of Michener Library.  The ability to check out tests from this collection is restricted to “appropriate personnel and to students in training” as dictated by the American Psychological Association’s Statement on the Use of Secure Psychological Tests in the Education of Graduate and Undergraduate Psychology Students.  In addition, some require instructor permission to use and these are indicated on the library catalog record in the status box with the notation “AVAILABLE (RESTRICTED).”

Included in the collection are:  

  • Selected ETS Tests in Microfiche - LTAB 1 E24 E3 (t) Fiche # 
  • Sample sets of individual tests in print format
  • Collections of tests in compendia or compilation volumes related to specific fields or topics

To search the collection, use the 'Classic Catalog' link from the Books & More tab, limiting the Location to F>Michnr Tests.
