What are tests and measurements
Psychological tests and measurements are tools which can be used by psychologists to help assess their patients for various conditions, and by researchers for data collection or research purposes. Below are some tips on how to access tests and measurements via specific databases.
The APA Publishing blog provides additional help:

In CINAHL, there are two ways you can search for instruments that have been used in studies.
1) In the search box you can add a topic, or the name of the instrument, and then select 'Instrumentation' from the drop down menu before you search.
2) Alternatively, after adding your search words you can limit your search results by 'Publication Type', choosing 'Questionnaire/Scale' and/or 'Research Instrument' from the list.
