Mental Measurements Yearbooks: 2014 Update

The Buros Center for Testing (Mental Measurements Yearbooks) have updated their website. It’s nice and clean but we do have to figure out where everything is again. This is what you need to do to find out which volume a particular test is located in.

From the Buros homepage go to the Test Reviews & Information tab and click on Test Reviews Online – you should see a page like the one below.

Buros 2014 UpdateMost people know what they are looking for and already have the complete name of the test or its acronym. The easiest way is to search by acronym. In this example we are looking for a review of the  Test of Written Language (TOWL). We find there are two results, the third and the fourth editions of this test. We can only look at the third because the fourth is yet to be published.

Buros 2014 TOWL-1After clicking on the title we can see the test’s bibliographic record. As we have the print edition of the review in the Library, it’s just a matter of looking for the appropriate volume. In this case it’s The Thirteenth Mental Measurement, Ref 151.22 B967m. Now, all you have to do is find the volume in the Ready Reference area and read it. For tips on how to cite Mental Measurement reviews in print properly, visit our APA eBook.
