Finding Tests and Instruments

Proquest Dissertations and Theses Global

Using Dissertations to find tests:

Search for related topic.
Go to Table of Contents for the Methodology chapter (usually chapter 3).  This chapter will indicate if the researcher created the questions or used someone else’s questions. If the researcher used someone else’s, check the references and track down the source.
Appendices also helpful to find who to contact for permissions.
Caveat—always read whether the research thinks the instrument actually worked.
