Hints about Finding Tests and Critiques

  • Commercially published, validated tests are protected by copyright and must be purchased from the publisher in order to use or administer them.
     
  • Experimental tests, that is, tests that are not commercially published, and not copyrighted, are less restricted and in many cases may be used, revised, administered. Unpublished tests may appear in journal articles and often can be used free of charge. APA retains copyright for tests that appear in any of its journals.
     
  • It is sometimes easier to locate a test by attribute or trait (racism, anxiety, intelligence) than a specific test by name.
