Social Work: Finding Tests and Measures: Home

This guide is designed to assist you with steps for finding tests, measures, scales, or questionnaires for your research.

Welcome!

This guide was designed to walk you through the necessary steps and to reveal to you your options for finding an instrument. 

START EARLY!  Finding the right test, measure, or instrument can take several steps and can be a time consuming process, so it is important that you begin looking for one well before your assignment is due.  Also, please note that not all tests are freely available. Make sure that the test that you have identified for your assignment is available to you before you write your paper.

See the tabs above for various sources for locating and evaluating tests and measures.


Please see my contact information at the bottom of the page if I can assist you by phone, e-mail, or in-person. I look forward to working with you!
