Abstract: Objective To review the reliability and validity of the Scale for TCM Pattern Element Differentiation of Depression. Methods The reliability was detected by using test-retest reliability, split-half reliability and internal consistency reliability, and validity was evaluated by using criterion related validity and construct validity in 232 patients with depression. Results The correlation coefficient of test-retest reliability of each pattern element was between 0.612 and 0.977, Cronbach’s α coefficient of the total scale was 0.892, split-half reliability was 0.849, and Kappa coefficient was between 0.689 and 0.892. The results of factor analysis showed that 8 common factors were roughly consistent with anticipated results, and accumulating contribution rate was 53.43%. Conclusion The Scale for TCM Pattern Element Differentiation of Depression has higher reliability and validity.
