Publishers’ Catalogs

All of the major test publishers have catalogs listing their own products. The catalogs are published on an annual or semiannual basis on-line and in print. A number of publishers have begun to discontinue the printed catalogs in favour of an online version.

 These catalogs are frequently the best source of information for the most recent editions of a test. Information on the cost of materials and scoring, types of scoring services, and ancillary materials are available through the catalogs. The catalogs also typically include information on test user qualifications, discounts, terms of use, etc. Contact the test publisher to request a catalog(s).
