This page is intended to help students who are doing the Psychology Test assignment, which usually is given at the start of each semester. Some things to remember:
Your test may not be in all the sources. Sometimes a test is only in one or two of the sources.
Mental Measurements Yearbook Online is set up for one simultaneous user at a time. If you encounter a message which says that it is not available because of that, just try again later. Rarely would anyone be on it for long periods. Also be sure to LOGOFF when YOU are finished!
None of the books can be checked out. However you can use the Mental Measurements Yearbook from off-campus. See thisLibGuidefor off-campus access information.
These books are in the REFERENCE SECTION which is on the First Floor toward the back right of the Connelly Learning Commons.

Produced by the Buros Institute of Mental Measurements at the University of Nebraska, the Mental Measurements Yearbook™ (MMY) provides users with a comprehensive guide to over 2,700 contemporary testing instruments. Designed for an audience ranging from novice test consumers to experienced professionals, the MMY series contains information essential for a complete evaluation of test products within such diverse areas as psychology, education, business, and leadership.
All MMY entries contain descriptive information (e.g., test purpose, publisher, pricing) and edited review(s) written by leading content area experts. To be included in the MMY, a test must be commercially available, published in the English language, and be new or revised since it last appeared in the series.
First published by Oscar K. Buros, the MMY series allows users to make knowledgeable judgments and informed selection decisions about the increasingly complex world of testing. This database provides coverage from Volume 9 to the present. MMY via EBSCOhost® now includes the MMY Archive providing all yearbooks from the first edition in 1938, through the 18th yearbook released in 2010 raising the total number of full-text reviews available on the product to over 7,000.
