Student Learning Outcomes
By the end of an information literacy session, students will be able to:
- identify tests and measures related to their topic
- locate the full text of an instrument (if available)
For the final research proposal and presentation, students will be able to:
- select one or more instruments to use for proposed data collection
- justify the use of the instrument(s) based on reliability and validity
Databases of Tests and Measures
Use these databases to find information about a test or measure, such as reliability, validity, and how it has been used, and occasionally the instrument itself.
Resources for Evaluating Tests and Measures
