  The Video Tutorials' page is well stocked with video tutorials and even an extensive webinar about the use of tests & measures and most particularly about "finding" tests & measures for your research.  A new webinar was recently added that covers not only the finding of these tools but also covers the types of measures and even introductory information on how to identify and select a good measure.
