How to Use the Electronic Directory
The E-Directory of Psychological Tests in the Sport and Exercise Sciences summarizes information on hundreds of sport- and exercise-specific psychological tests that have been reported in the scientific literature since the first World Congress of Sport Psychology was held in Rome, Italy in 1965. Test summaries are continually being added or revised.

The organization format is identical for each test described in the e-directory. Each test summary is intend to provide the subscriber with quick access to concise information about a test rather than to serve as a test review or critique. (Note: to purchase an outstanding reference resource that provides critiques of many of the tests cited in the e-directory, CLICK on Advances in Sport and Exercise Psychology Measurement, Joan L. Duda, Editor.) The test summaries do not contain all information required by the subscriber to administer, score, or interpret test results. Where provided, test users are encouraged to send an email to the test author for additional information.

The format for each test summary is as follows:

Test Title: The test title and acronym are cited exactly as found in the source. Parentheses surrounding the acronym indicate that this is the acronym used by the test authors. Brackets surrounding the title or acronym signify that I assigned a title or acronym.

Test Author(s): These are the original authors of the test as their names appeared in the sources. However, these names may have been modified based on correspondence with the principal author of the test.

Source: The source indicates the refereed publication or refereed professional presentation in which the most recent version of the test is described.

Purpose: This section describes the general objective(s) and intent of the self-report test.

Description: This section briefly describes the nature of scales and subscales, presents examples of test items, and indicates the measurement scale(s) used to evaluate test item responses.

Construction: This section describes sequentially the procedures used to develop the test, prior to computing estimates of reliability and validity. The section indicates how items were selected initially and subsequently modified. Item analysis and content validation procedures are also reported.

Reliability: Estimates of internal consistency and test stability or presented.

Validity: Evidence for concurrent, predictive, and construct validity are presented.

Norms: This section presents test norms, when available. Otherwise, this section presents information on sampling characteristics used to generate psychometric data.

Availability: Indicates the name, address, office phone number, and office fax number of the principal author of the test.

E-mail: Subscribers can now contact a test author directly through this website.

References: This section provides an extensive list of references that have employed the test. An asterisk indicates that the reference centered on further examining the psychometric properties of the test.

Each test summary can be found in one of twenty sections such as anxiety, aggression, or exercise motivation. Subscribers can also employ a database search to locate a test by test title, test author, or content area.

I encourage subscribers and test authors to send me an email to report updates to the e-directory.
