A tool for Basel researchers

A testothek is a library of psychological tests. You can borrow licensed psychological tests ranging from the Beck Depression Inventory (Hautzinger, Keller, Kühne; 2009) to the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale (Petermann, 2012).

Most universities’ psychology departments have a testothek, we recommend you to check with your institution for more information. The following brief tutorial introduces the search functionality at the University of Basel.

You can find more information (in German) about the location and the opening hours of the testothek at the psychology department of the University of Basel here. To find tests you can follow the direct link to the Testothek. Note: certain links are only freely accessible within eduroam. If you want to use resources from the university at home, you need to install a VPN Client.

Tip: note down how to score the test results (see test manual) if you need to return the test prior to gathering data. Also note down the test results of the general population (test norms). Remember that the test material is copyright protected, that means you cannot share the test information publicly.
