Library Tip: Assessment Test Reviews

Attention Psyc, MFT, and Ed.D students!! Do you ever borrow assessment tests from our collection and need to read reviews about them? Are you tired of thumbing through the thick print versions of Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) and Tests in Print, searching in vain for a test review? Next time you find yourself apprehensively staring at an MMY tome, remember this: The assessment test reviews are available online. This is handy to know for several reasons:
  1. You'll save yourself time.
  2. You'll save yourself money, not having to make copies out of the book (if you print at home). (Or work.) (Sneaky.)
  3. You can access the reviews anytime, anywhere.
  4. Risk of paper cut lowers 86%.
To access Mental Measurements Yearbook and Tests in Print online, follow these steps.
  1. Go to our home page,
  2. Click the link "search for articles"
  3. Browse through the databases listed under "Health & Social Sciences". You should see both Mental Measurements Yearbook and Tests in Print.
  4. Click!
  5. Remember if you're off campus, you'll need to log in with your Saint Mary's University username and password to access the databases.
