Suggested Steps for Assignment
- Decide which disorder you want to research.
- Read the resources on this Libguide about assessing the disorder you have chosen. If your disorder is not listed here, let me know and we can work together to find more resources for you.
- As you read, note if several resources mention the same instruments, or refer to an instrument as gold standard, widely used, well-known, etc.
- For additional information about a specific instrument:
- Reviews of tests: Read unbiased reviews by experts in the field in Mental Measurements Yearbook and Test Critiques set (print only in Blommers). Note: If you do not find a review in MMY or Test Critiques, this does not necessarily mean it is a "bad" measurement instrument.
- Technical manual: Test kits are available in Blommers Library. Many times the accompanying techincal manual will have information about validity and reliability. Search Blommers catalog to see if the library has a copy of a test you are interested in.
- Test Publisher: Do a Google search using the test title. This will usually find the test publisher website (example: Brown Attention-Deficit Disorder Scales). The publisher's website will have the most current details about cost, administration time, qualification requirements for test administrators, and other pertinent information.
