    I need help in selecting six online personality tests that have been reviewed by scholars. With the six tests I need to create a chart (which I can create), the chart needs to:
    Name of Test, Author(s),
    Publication Date,
    For what is the test used,
    How does it claim to measure the variable (true-false questions),
    What kind of score is provided, Do an online or MMY search for reviews and summarize the review or explain if a review cannot be found,
    Would you take this test (explain),
    Should this test be considered a personality test,
    With which of the theories you have studied is the test compatible.

    I need this information to incorporate into my own online assessment and provide a brief overview.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

Each primary factor is scored based on a continuum of adjective responses. The test is interpreted with scores ranging from low to high scored.

    While there are no specific scoring methods offered According to Russell & Karol's training manual, responses to the items are generated using standardized ten scores; ranging from 1 to 10 with a mean of 5.5 and standard deviation of two. Scores that fall between one and three are considered in the low range; scores between four and seven are considered average; scores from eight to ten are considered high range scores.
