PsycTests - Tests & Measures for Psychology Research

Tests & Measures are frequently used in Psychology research. PsycTests is a useful research to explore primarily unpublished tests (often including the full text of the test itself). Information regarding validity and reliability of tests is included as well. 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.
