When PsycTESTS has results for a test that Spalding does not have access to we can not request the scales or questions from another library without knowing where it was published. These tests are often not published on their own, but as parts of articles or in the appendixes of journals or text books.

In the PsycTESTS results you will see information about an article that uses this study.

In this result you can see the journal that published the use of this test, the article, and the authors. If you enter this information into an ILL request ask for that article and see if it has the scale or actual test that you are looking for. Often, even the source article will not contain the actual scales or questions, this usually means the publisher wants the test purchased for access. Generally, an internet search for the test will find the site for purchase.

The Psychology Test Kit Center possesses many tests available to students. Simply email tkc@spalding.edu, or visit them on the 3rd floor of Mansion East.
