  • Many tests are owned by test companies that charge to use their tests (commercial tests e.g. WISC, WAIS, WRAT)
  • Some tests are published in individual articles
  • Many tests are discussed in articles, but the full text is not discoverable without contacting the author

New to Methodology?

SAGE Research Methods is a database with resources (books, articles, videos) about methodology.
