The primary point to start looking for such tools is to look at Mental Measurements Yearbook. This resource features reviews and information on how to access different kinds of tests and measurements that may be used in schools either for psychological/learning disability assessment or studying student perceptions on a variety of issues.
If you can’t find an appropriate test, the next thing to look for is another study that has used a similar tool, or measured the same factor and see if they included the inventory or questionnaires as appendices. You can also contact authors of such studies to ask if you can use/adapt their tool for your own research. (Researchers tend to love this as it promotes their own work as well!). You can find studies like this in databases like ERIC and Education Research Complete.
For further assistance you may wish to contact your Education Librarian; contact information is located in this list of subject librarians.
