The most widely acclaimed reference series in education and psychology, the Mental Measurements Yearbooks are designed to assist professionals in selecting and using standardized tests. The series, initiated in 1938, provides factual information, critical reviews, and comprehensive bibliographic references on the construction, use, and validity of all tests published in English.
 
The objectives of the Mental Measurements Yearbooks have remained essentially the same since the publication of the series. These objectives include provision to test users of:
 

  • factual information on all known tests published as separates in the English-speaking countries of the world
  • candidly critical test reviews written for the MMY series by qualified professional people representing a variety of viewpoints
  • unique publication of each volume in the MMY series with new volumes supplementing rather than supplanting previous series volumes.
The importance of testing in our everyday lives has never been more vital or pronounced. Recognized worldwide as an essential resource on tests and testing, the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) series is an indispensable reference for anyone involved in the evaluation, selection, and use of commercially published assessments. The Eighteenth Mental Measurements Yearbook continues this long-standing tradition by providing professional reviews of over one hundred and fifty new or recently revised tests.
 
This current edition of the MMY series offers evaluations of the latest assessments in education, psychology, business, law, healthcare, counseling, and management. In addition to test reviews, descriptions of the purpose, target population, administration, scores, price, author, and publisher for all listed tests are provided. Reviews are written by highly qualified professionals with expertise in a range of disciplines. Test entries are cross-referenced and indexed by title, subject, name, acronym, and score. An updated directory of test publishers is also included.
