An Indispensable Guide to Commercially Available English and Spanish-Language Tests
Mental Measurements Yearbook
Written by Leading Content Area Experts
All Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) entries contain descriptive information (test purpose, publisher, pricing, population and scores) and edited reviews written by leading content area experts. To be included in the MMY, a test must be commercially available, published in the English language and be new or revised since it last appeared in the series.
First published by Oscar K. Buros, the MMY series allows users to make knowledgeable judgments and informed selection decisions about the increasingly complex world of testing. MMY via EBSCOhost now includes the MMY Archive, providing all yearbooks from the first edition in 1938 through the present edition.
Tests in Print (TIP)
This resource integrates the complete Tests in Print (TIP) database, also produced by the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska. TIP serves as a comprehensive bibliography to all known commercially available tests that are currently in print in the English language. A score index permits users to identify what is measured by each test. TIP provides vital information about tests including test purpose, intended test population, administration times, scores generated, price, test publisher, in-print status, test acronym, publication dates and test authors.
Tests in Print also guides readers to critical, candid test reviews published in the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) series. TIP is an essential reference for professionals in education, psychology and business, as well as anyone interested in the critical issues of tests and testing.
Pruebas Publicadas en Español (PPE)
Through the inclusion of all content previously available only via Pruebas Publicadas en Español: An Index of Spanish Tests in Print, also published by the Buros Center, this database provides extensive and vital information about tests published in Spanish. It offers test descriptions using 22 distinct descriptor fields to acquaint test users with available measures that facilitate the appropriate selection of tests. A descriptive summary of available test norms is also provided. The translation or adaptation process is described when applicable.
PPE has been designed to serve as a ready reference for practitioners, researchers, teachers, librarians and any professionals who work with Spanish-speaking clients or train those who do. Like Tests in Print, PPE guides readers to candid test reviews published in the Mental Measurements Yearbook series.
My overall impression of the EBSCOhost interface is that it offers something for everybody.– Charleston Advisor
