A directory of non-commercial experimental measurements, scales, tests, and surveys in use when each directory was published. Provides researchers with descriptive information about experimental tests in education, psychology, and sociology to enable the researchers to determine whether the tests might be of potential use. The Directory is developed from the editors' examination of over thirty professional journals in education, psychology, and sociology.

For indexing, consult the cumulative author and subject indexes at the back of the most recent volume. 

Tests and Measures in the Social Sciences (TMSS)
"Tests and Measures in the Social Sciences" (TMSS) is an online  index to tests and measurement resources appearing in 140 handbooks (also referred to as compilation volumes) used to measure human characteristics in psychology, counseling, social work, health, and other fields. This index was created to "help students who are writing academic papers."  Each document that is part of the TMSS index features one resource containing some of the many tests that can be found in handbooks available in libraries  Check Rod Library to learn whether we have each handbook. (If Rod Library does not own them, you may wish to try our Interlibrary Loan Service.)  Formerly TMdb, TMSS was created by Helen Hough, Systems Librarian emeritus at the University of Texas at Arlington.
