    PsycTESTS is a research database that provides access to psychological tests, measures, scales, surveys, and other commercial and non-commercial assessments.  Brock researchers will find descriptive summaries of each test, its development and administration.  Researchers will be happy to know that many of the tests are available in full-text, which can be an expensive obstacle for those conducting research in the behavioural sciences. The PsycTESTS database works seamlessly with the PsycINFO database so researchers can easily access measures that are were used in previous studies for their own research.
