Test Instruments and Measurement Tools: Actual Tools and Reviews of Tools

Provides information about locating scales, measures, surveys, or questionnaires for conducting research

Tools vs. Reviews of Tools

As you look for your measurement tools, you will come across items that REVIEW a tool and items that actually provide a COPY of the tool.  


A review of a tool will look something like this one below.  It will include the author, purpose, intended audience (ie: children vs. adults) how the tool was tested for validity, and it's availability.

When you actually get a copy of a tool, it will provide instructions on how to administer the test and how to score the results.  It will also have a list of questions or surveys that you will administer.
