You’ve found a test in the APA PsycTests database that you’d like to use in your research and are maybe wondering, “Now what?”
The FAQ below explains how to use the APA PsycTests database record (“test record”) to find important information and related clues to help identify your next steps. The test record includes two separate but related tabs: Test Profile and Source Citations.
- The Test Profile tab displays the subset of fields used to describe the test (note that not all fields will appear for every test).
- The Source Citations tab displays reference information for research related to the test, including any available links to the publication sources.
