Scenario #1: I'm looking for the names of tests administered for a particular topic
Search your topic in PsycInfo, ex: seasonal affective disorder.
When reviewing the results, select the Complete Reference; if any tests were administered, this will be noted in the Tests & Measures field. This can be time-consuming if there are a lot of references to review.
Too many references to quickly review? You can limit to only those references that have content in the Tests & Measures field. To do this:
Like before, search your topic in PsycInfo, ex: seasonal affective disorder.
Select Search Fieldsfrom the main search page, and in the search box, copy and paste the following search string: (test OR measure* OR survey OR inventory OR append* OR question* OR scale OR manual OR form OR interview OR checklist OR assessment)
Scroll down, put a checkmark beside tm: Tests & Measures, and select Search.
Finally, combine your topic search with this search.
Scenario #2: I'm looking for studies that discuss the psychometrics for instruments used for a specific topic
Search your topic in PsycInfo, ex: postpartum depression.
Select Additional Limits, select Tests & Measures, and finally Limit a Search.
Scenario #3: I’m looking for research studies that have used a particular test.
Choose Search Fields on the PsycInfo main search page.
Enter the name of the test, ex: Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status then place a checkmark beside the field marked tm: Test & Measures and select Search.
