SU subscribes to Dissertations & Theses Full Text, an online database that allows you to download dissertations free of charge. Dissertations can be a rich resource for finding tests because doctoral students often use, adapt, and create instruments for their own research. Here are some hints for searching the database:
Networked Digital Library of Thesis and Dissertations links to several free online databases that allow you to download some dissertations free of charge.
Please note: Dissertations are very long, often 150 pages or more. In order to avoid printing the entire dissertation, use the table of contents of the document to locate the instrument in the appendices. Notice the page number of the instrument and use the page navigation tools in the Adobe Acrobat viewer to advance to the instrument. You can print out or save just the pages with the instrument.
