Mental Measurements Yearbook in Print

The SUU Library owns print copies of the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY) from  the 3rd Edition (1949) to the current  21st Edition (2021). All editions are located in the Reference Collection on the first floor of the library (call number BF 431 .M46). Search the Library Catalog by the title "Mental Measurements Yearbook" to find a list of all editions.

The MMY contain reviews of tests covering personality, aptitude, psychology, intelligence, speech and hearing, sensory motor abilities and other related areas. Test information includes the author, publisher, scoring information, and references to critical reviews of the test. Beginning with the Fourteenth MMY (2001), volumes in the series are produced every two years.

Note for students: You will not find tests in the MMY, only the reviews of tests.

Finding a Specific Test Review

Each edition in the MMY covers the time period since the previous volume. If you want to search for a specific test review, use the "Mental Measurements Index (Buros)" to locate the MMY edition that contains it.

How to Search for a Test Review:

  1. Go to the Mental Measurements Index (Buros) (also linked on the library's A-Z database page).
  2. Search the MMY Index with a Keyword Search (Test Title, Acronym, Author, Publisher, Purpose, or Scores), or you can choose the Alphabetical Listing or Category Search).
  3. Locate the MMY edition in the "Reviewed In" row of the Details table on the test's page.
