Important for writers of dissertations and theses You are responsible for ensuring that you have permission to use a test for your research. You will need to contact the author or journal publisher, identify yourself, and indicate how you plan to use the test. While some tests may be used with permission at no charge, many psychological and educational tests must be purchased directly from the publisher For more information about copyright, see the Copyright Guide.
Milner Library does not purchase tests and measurements. The only ones available through the library will be those obtainable in some of the sources listed elsewhere on this guide.
Tests generally fall into two categories: Published and Unpublished.
Published (Commercial) Tests
Published tests are those tests available for purchase from a publisher.
Unpublished tests, paradoxically, refer to tests that are not available for sale via publishers. That is, unpublished in this context refers to tests which were probably published, just not for sale. Unpublished tests and measures are published in journal articles, books, dissertations - in a variety of places.
