Finding a PsycTESTS instrument/tool and its validation article:
In the PsycTESTSdatabase, select SmartText Searching
Select full-text box
Under "Fee" category, select "No"
Under "Permissions" category, select "May Use for Research/Teaching"
Type in your keywords or phrase (since you are using SmartText searching, the database will make some assumptions on what you mean to find), click on search.
You will now see tests/tools/instruments in your results (they look like article results). If no results, use synonyms for your terms instead.
Clicking on a title that you are interested in, then make sure at the bottom of the record that the "Test File" says "Full" and not "Partial." If it states "Full," click on the PDF link on the left hand side.
From the PDF, scroll through the test (it could be just 4 short question or as long as several pages) and determine if it works for you. If it does, look at the first page and see the citation for the "Source" citation (NOT the first PsycTESTS citation). This is the validating article for the test (the study that used the test/tool/instrument).
Carefully determine the JOURNAL title from the source citation (will be after the period at the end of the ARTICLE title in the citation).
