Mental Measurements Yearbook, produced by the Buros Institute at the University of Nebraska, provides users with a comprehensive guide to over 2,000 contemporary testing instruments. Designed for an audience ranging from novice test consumers to experienced professionals, the MMY series contains information essential for a complete evaluation of test products within such diverse areas as psychology, education, business, and leadership.
MMY provides coverage from Volume 1 to the present.
Also produced by the Buros Institute of Mental Measurements at the University of Nebraska, Tests in Print (TIP) serves as a comprehensive bibliography to all known commercially available tests that are currently in print in the English language. TIP provides vital information to users including test purpose, test publisher, in-print status, price, test acronym, intended test population, administration times, publication date(s), and test author(s).
Comprising three databases produced by the Buros Center for Testing at the University of Nebraska, Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print Internacional combines indispensable, consumer-oriented test reviews and references for both novices and professionals together in one resource. It includes content from Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) and Tests in Print (TIP) as well as content previously available only in Pruebas Publicadas en Español (PPE).
Designed to serve the increasing needs of diverse populations, PPE provides a ready reference for practitioners, researchers, teachers, librarians, and all professionals who work directly with Spanish-speaking clients or train those who do. Like Tests in Print, PPE acquaints test users with available Spanish-language measures and guides readers to candid test reviews published in the Mental Measurements Yearbook series. It facilitates appropriate test selection by offering descriptions of more than 400 tests along 22 dimensions, including test norms, norming samples, and translation or adaption processes when applicable.
The MMY series allows users to make knowledgeable judgments and informed selection decisions within the increasingly complex world of testing. It provides coverage from the first edition in 1938 through the present edition for a total of more than 10,000 available full-text reviews. Entries contain descriptive information and edited reviews written by leading content-area experts.
The TIP database serves as a comprehensive bibliography to all known commercially available tests that are currently in print in the English language. A score index allows users to identify what is being measured by each test. TIP acquaints test users with available English-language tests and guides readers to test reviews published in the MMY series.
By bringing together the PPE, TIP, and MMY databases, readers can access detailed descriptions of commercial tests available in English and in Spanish as well as thousands of informative reviews of these measures now accessible through Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print Internacional.
