Tests & Measures: Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) and Tests in Print (TIP)

Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) and Tests in Print (TIP)

The Mental measurements yearbook (MMY) is one of the oldest and best-known test resources. Published irregularly, it contains reviews of a selection of commercially available English-language tests newly developed or substantially revised since the publication of the previous edition. MMY is available online via the SLU Libraries from 1985 (9th ed.)-date (18th ed./2010).  Print editions through the 16th (2006) are shelved at Ref. Z 5814 .P8 B932. The Buros Web site provides indexing only, with just basic information about the measures, from the 9th edition (1985) through the present edition; see Buros: Complete MMY Index (


Tests In Print (TIP), a companion to MMY that is integrated into the MMY database, is  "a comprehensive bibliography to all known commercially available tests that are currently in print in the English language."  TIP is in its seventh edition currently; the print volume of this edition, along with the older print TIP editions, are shelved at Ref. LB 3051 .T454.  For more information about these and related publications, see the Publications Catalog of the Buros Institute of Mental Measurements (
