APA describes Tests In Print as "a bibliographic encyclopedia of information on every commercially available test in psychology and achievement. Each entry consists of the test title, intended population, publication date, acronym (if applicable), author, publisher, foreign adaptations, and references. There are no critical reviews or psychometric information on the tests; detailed information on individual tests is available in other reference books such as MMY or Test Critiques. TIP was created to serve as a master index to the whole Buros Institute reference series on tests, including the 11 MMYs and the monograph series."
Updated regularly. Contains full text information about and reviews of English-language standardized tests covering educational skills, personality, vocational aptitude, psychology, and related areas. Corresponds in part to the print Mental Measurements Yearbook. Another useful tools is the Tests and Assessments Research Guide which is also available.
From Boston University: "The Health Literacy Tool Shed is an online database of health literacy measures. The site contains information about measures, including their psychometric properties, based on a review of the peer-reviewed literature."
