Test instruments and measurement tools are all about assessing some type of program, technique, or response from a person or group of people. Most disciplines use them at some point, but some of the most frequent uses come from medical studies or psychological assessment. This guide will walk you through all of the tools we have available here at YSU Maag Library.
Keep in mind that finding a measurement tool and getting a copy of that tool are two different goals. Test Instruments come in two categories: Published and Unpublished. You will find published tools easily through one of the databases, however these tools will often require you to pay to actually get a copy to use in your research. Unpublished tools are more difficult to find since they are often developed for a specific research need. Many times you can get a copy of these tools by contacting the person who developed them.
