Psychological Assessment And Testing Library

Psychology Testing Library

Psychological assessment is a process of testing that uses a combination of techniques to help arrive at hypotheses regarding a person's behavior, personality, and capabilities.

The purpose of the Psychology Department Testing Library is to provide Millersville University students access to a variety of psychological testing batteries for training purposes. Graduate students in the Clinical, School Psychology, and School Counseling programs utilize these materials to build their knowledge on individual psychological evaluation, as well as to gain practical experience in administering and interpreting individual psychological test batteries. 

Policies and Procedures

The Psychology Department Test Library is integrated with the MU library's borrowing system (Voyager) and checking out tests works like checking out a book. You will receive a system-generated email when an item becomes overdue. If not returned within two weeks of the due date, the item is presumed missing and you will be billed for fines and replacement costs.

Procedures for Borrowing and Returning Test Items

  1. All items are borrowed and returned from Luek 103 with the assistance of the Test Library Graduate Assistants or Student Worker (see office door for hours available).
  2. You must have a valid MU ID card with you to borrow items.
  3. Once the test kit is presented to you, you and the GA should immediately check its actual contents against the list of what should be in there (each kit has a laminated Contents card inside).
  4. Unless specific items are noted as missing BEFORE you leave Luek 103, you are presumed to have a complete kit and are liable for anything missing when the kit is returned.
  5. When you return the kit, please check to make sure everything is there. BEFORE the kit is scanned for return, the GA or student worker will verify the contents of the kit. If incomplete, the kit will NOT be accepted for check-in. If the materials cannot be located, you will be billed for replacement costs.

Loan Policies

Please refrain from using pen/pencil notations within the pages of the kit. Fines or replacement costs of materials will be assessed for damaged items. Most tests have a standard loan period, renewals, fines, etc. as given below. Adjustments may be made at the request of faculty members teaching the assessment courses (details in parentheses apply to the MMPI Test Scoring Templates).
