Use one of the Library databases listed in the guide to identify a test instrument

Locate a standardized measurement instrument used in your specialization or area of interest, and then complete an evaluation of the instrument as described below. There are a few different ways to locate a measurement instrument with published psychometrics.

Use the information found in the LibGuide in this week’s Resources to locate a test instrument by one of these three methods:

  1. Use the Roadrunner Search to identify a measurement instrument used in a peer-reviewed study you have read, and then use the reference list to find its origin.
  2. Use one of the Library databases listed in the guide to identify a test instrument.
  3. Try searching for a commercially published test or measurement or information about them on the Internet.

The standardized measurement instrument used in the critique must be located from a scholarly source containing validity and reliability information. Use the measurement template below to create a presentation sharing your critique.

Length: 6 slides, not including title and reference slides; each slide should include 150-200 words of speaker notes

References: Include a minimum of 1 reference (cite the source where you located the measurement instrument).
