PsycTESTS, from the American Psychological Association (APA), serves as a repository for the full text of psychological tests and measures as well as a source of structured information about the tests. A wide variety of test types are included in PsycTESTS, including achievement and aptitude tests, intelligence tests, tests of cognitive functioning, occupational tests, personality tests, and more. The main focus of PsycTESTS is unpublished tests, those developed by researchers for use in their work but not made commercially available. For as many records as possible, a complete copy of the test is included. PsycTESTS also includes tests from the Archives of the History of American Psychology at the University of Akron. These tests may not be literature based. APA has agreements with several commercial test publishers to create records for their tests and, in some cases, to include sample reports, instructions, or sample questions. All records in PsycTESTS are indexed and include fields for validity and reliability data (when available), test purpose, construct, format, number of items, and more.
