Mental Measurements Yearbook
Library Guide Series
- Mental Measurements Yearbook, produced by the Buros Institute, contains descriptive information & critical reviews
of commercially available standardized English-language educational, personality, aptitude, neuropsychological,
achievement & intelligence tests.
This database includes the full text of the ninth (1985) through the most current yearbook.
The online database is updated every six months.
- Mental Measurements Yearbook
is available to current UT Arlington faculty & students at this webaddress:
A truncation symbol in Mental Measurements Yearbook
is an asterisk (*),
and when this symbol is put at the end of a word,
the database will be searched for all of
the possible endings--suffixes--for that word.
For example, the command "depress*" will have the computer search engine
look for all possible endings of this word. It should find,
"depression," "depressed," "depressive," and "depressing."
Two Boolean operators that are important in finding information
are AND and OR.
The AND is used to connect two different
concepts and the OR is used between concepts that are synonymous.
It is critical to put parentheses around a search expression
that contains an OR.
Researchers who use the Mental Measurements Yearbook are often
looking for more information about a measurement instrument.
Often they already know the name of the instrument or the author's last name.
The Mental Measurements Yearbook can often provide critical finding information
for commercially available instruments.
