Researchers often want to know to perform a lit review for tests or search for a survey …
Use the guide to finding test instruments at http://guides.nyu.edu/tests
from there, click on the tab for Databases for finding info about tests and notice both HaPI and CINAHL and the directions for searching.
1985-present, with many earlier measures. HaPI indexes the use of tests and measurement instruments (i.e., questionnaires, interview schedules, checklists, index measures, coding schemes/manuals, rating scales, projective techniques, vignettes/scenarios, tests) in journal literature in a variety of fields including public health, nursing, psychology, human resources, sociology, and communication.
Results include articles that use a test, e.g., a Secondary source like this, in which the Chronic Heart Failure Questionnaire was used in the study:
Rich, M. W., Beckham, V., Wittenberg, C., Leven, C. L., Freedland, K. E., & Carney, R. M. (1995). A multidisciplinary intervention to prevent the readmission of elderly patients with congestive heart failure. New England Journal of Medicine, 333, 1190-1195. https://getit.library.nyu.edu/go/9394025
Results may include the Primary source, the questionnaire itself, published in this study:
Guyatt, G. H., Nogradi, S., Halcrow, S., Singer, J., Sullivan, M. J. J., & Fallen, E. L. (1989). Development and testing of a new measure of health status for clinical trials in heart failure. Journal of General Internal Medicine, 4(Mar/Apr), 101-107. https://getit.library.nyu.edu/go/9394026
In CINAHL Plus
the “instrumentation” field in citations is searchable and retrieves similar results, articles that include your keyword(s) in that field, indicating the study used a particular survey or tool. Directions for searching within the “instrumentation” field in CINAHL are here: http://guides.nyu.edu/c.php?g=276610&p=1845039
