Here is a link from the APA blog that talks about citing surveys, questionnaires, and other measurement instruments in APA format: http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2014/02/how-to-cite-a-psychological-test-in-apa-style.html
Here is a sample from the blog:
In the body of your paper, be careful to write the name exactly as it appears in your reference. And here again, capitalize the test name, because it is a proper noun. However, capitalize the word survey (or instrument, quiz, etc.) only if it’s part of the test’s name:
“In this study, we used Purring’s (2012) Charisma and Tenacity Survey (CATS) rather than Barks and Howls’s (2013) Directions of Generosity survey.”
A test's name is a proper noun, so be sure to capitalize it in the reference.
