Inventory of depressive symptomatology is a questionnaire that measures the severity of depression symptoms.
|Quick Inventory of Depressible Symptomatology|
The IDS contains items, most but not all of which are scored 0- 3. The maximum score on the IDS is an 84, because some items are not included in the score.
Of note, the IDS addresses the role of atypical neurovegetative symptoms by scoring only the maximum sleep and appetite symptom.
A shorter 16-item form, called the Quick Inventory of Depressible Symptomatology (QIDS) also is available. The IDS and QIDS are unique among depression tests in that self report and clinical-rated versions were developed concurrently.
