About Tests

Many of these sources do not contain actual tests. They contain reviews and descriptions of tests. Because tests are often copyrighted and for sale, they can be difficult to obtain without paying for them.


PsychTests is a database from the American Psychological Association that contains complete tests along with directions and scoring information. Click here to search PsychTests and click here for a set of directions on searching PsychTests.
