Welcome to Tests, Measures and Assessments in Education

This guide is intended for use by those who are looking for tests and assessments in education. The links will assist you in getting information about an assessment instrument to finding a copy of the actual instrument.

It is difficult to locate the actual test instruments but there are a variety of ways to find them. Some can be found in peer-reviewed articles or dissertations using the library's databases, some are included in print anthologies of tests and measures, and some can be found for free, as well as for a fee, on the Internet. Additionally Fletcher Library has a small collection of educational tests available to education students and faculty on a limited basis.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-three Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
