Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print

What is Mental Measurements Yearbook? 

This database is a key resource for students reviewing testing instruments and researching test reliability and validity, especially those students taking PS505: Testing, Measurement, and Assessment.

The Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) is produced by the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska. This resource is essential for evaluating contemporary testing instruments. The MMY database contains full-text reviews for test products in psychology, education, business and leadership. 

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.

Volumes in the MMY series are produced every three years.

Please note: This database has a maximum of 4 simultaneous users. If the limit is reached, please try accessing again later.
