The purpose of the present study was to examine the validity of the Korean version of the parent and youth self-administered versions of the KSADS-COMP (The Kiddie Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for school-age children). To assess the criterion validity of the KSADS-COMP, diagnoses made by the selfadministered KSADS-COMP were compared to the gold-standard diagnoses made by the child-adolescent psychiatrists in 41 participants (mean age=14.93 ± 2.16 years, female=41.46 %). Gwet's first order agreement coefficient (AC1) concordance ratings showed moderate to good range. The present study shows promising validity of the Korean self-administered versions of the KSADS-COMP in Korean youths.
