Mental Measurements Yearbooks Revisited

You’ve been asked to find a test review, but you’re not quite sure how to go about doing it. Here are the steps you need to take:

Mental Measurements Search box

  • You can search for test review using title, acronym, or author etc. In the example above we’re looking for Test of Written English – Third Edition which is sometimes referred to as TOWL.
  • Below is the result returned when we typed in TOWL and checked the acronym box.

Mental Measurements Result List

  • Although only one result was returned above, quite often you’ll get rather a long list with relevancy percentages points next to each result.
  • When you click the link you’ll get an abstract which contains the all important volume number. In this example the review of the Test of Written Language – Third Edition is in the thirteenth yearbook.

Mental Measurement Record

  • Next, go to the Ready Reference section of the Library (hint: it’s next to the reference desk).
  • Find the appropriate volume and read your review.
  • Once you are done you will need to add your test review citation to your reference list. Buro’s has kindly created a page on how to cite test reviews, there’s also a nice cheat sheet from Keith Stanger (Eastern Michigan University Library.
