The information in Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print covers psychological tests, career inventories, intelligence and aptitude, and personality.  You will not find scales that test for physical ailments or addictions.


To access the Mental Measurements Yearbook, follow these steps:

1.  Click the blue button A-Z databases on the Library homepage.


2.  Click on the letter M and scroll down until you see  Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print link.

3. You will see three search boxes.  Enter keywords associated with your topic in the boxes.  For example, you may search for the topic aggression by entering the word aggression in the first search box.  For Pedro's case, you can try searching treatment and patient. 


Note: You do not need to use all three boxes in your keyword search. If you are unsure of what to search for you can select a category in the Test Category area located in  the section labeled Limit Your Results, then click Search at the top or bottom of the screen.


6. To view a complete assessment click on either the test title or on HTML Full Text.
