PsycTests is an electronic database providing descriptive summaries, full text, and relevant citations on the development and assessment of tests and measures that can be used in research and teaching. The database serves as a repository for the full text (when available) of psychological tests and measures as well as a source of structured information about tests of relevance to psychologists and professionals in related fields such as psychiatry, management, business, education, social science, neuroscience, law, medicine, and social work. Updated monthly, PsycTESTS® includes unpublished tests, tests developed by psychologists for which no source document has been located, and information about published tests available from commercial publishers.

We would love to get feedback from you as to how useful this resource would be for the University to subscribe to, please send any feedback to blslibrarians@cardiff.ac.uk.
