Human nutrition, foods, and exercise: Recommended Resources

Human nutrition, food and exercise at Virginia Tech

The mission of Virginia Tech's Department of Human Nutrition, Foods and Exercise is to discover, translate, and disseminate health-related advances in the nutrition, food, and exercise sciences. Major programs of study within this department include consumer foods, dietetics, exercise and health promotion, and the science of food, nutrition, and exercise; research in these areas is often interdisciplinary.

Welcome to the HNFE library guide from VT University Libraries!  My name is Ginny Pannabecker, and I'm your liaison librarian (see my photo and contact info below). This guide is intended to provide you with resources to get started for HNFE projects and courses. Please contact me anytime with questions, or to set up a project consultation:

Tests & Measures

Tests & Measures are frequently used in research with communities, for nutrition, health, exercise, policy, and related areas. The resources here will help you find tests and measures that you may consider using in your own research. Mental Measurements Yearbook with Tests in Print primarily indexes published, commercially available tests with information on how to acquire them. PsycTests primarily covers unpublished tests (often including the full text of the test itself). Both offer varying information regarding validity and reliability of tests referenced. PsycInfo (above in Scholarly Research Databases) is another great place to look for test information in scholarly works that used them, though the full test is often not available there.

APA: Finding Information About Psychological Tests - The American Psychological Association also has this great page on tips for identifying and using tests and measures.

*Contact your liaison librarian, for assistance in searching for tests (contact info at the top right side of this page - or at the end if on a mobile device).
