The Internet-based Self-assessment Program for Depression (ISPD) has been found to have good test-retest reliability for major depressive disorder (MDD). The purpose of this study was to further examine the validity of the ISPD for MDD. We found sensitivity and specificity of MDD by ISPD to be 81.8% and 72.7% respectively. Internet may play an important role for patients to self-assess their possibility of getting MDD.
