|Other information about tool (e.g., additional psychometrics [NPV, PPV, Youden’s index, diagnostic odds ratio])||The CAPS demonstrated good interrater (intraclass correlation coefficient [ICC] = .92) and test–retest (ICC = .84) reliability. For the 179 patients interviewed by the trained social worker, the CAPS coefficient alpha was .92, and the item–total correlations ranged from .48 to .85. The two items with the lowest item–subscale correlations were “inability to recall important aspects of the trauma” (.47) and “restricted range of affect” (.52).
Reexperiencing (cluster B: items 1–5): Coefficient alpha .91; Corrected item − total correlation .69–.84
Avoidance and numbing (cluster C: items 6–12): Coefficient alpha .87; Corrected item − total correlation
Hyperarousal (cluster D: items 13–17): Coefficient alpha .86; Corrected item − total correlation .56–.75

|Notes when administering the tool||Tool was translated and back-translated for use among Cambodian refugee populations in the United States. Only patients who were exposed to the Cambodian genocide (1975–1979) were included in the study. Of the 179 patients surveyed, 62% (111/179) were women. The average age was 55.4 years (SD = 8.1). Patients had lived in the United States an average of 17.8 years (SD = 3.9), and eight patients spoke English with some degree of fluency (i.e., could communicate in a medication session without need of translation).
The CAPS provides ratings of the frequency and intensity of each of the 17 DSM-IV–based PTSD symptoms on 0–4 Likert-type scales, thereby allowing for a maximal score of 8 for each symptom (Weathers et al., 2001) and a total-score range from 0 to 136. Weathers and associates (2001) suggested the following score categories: 0–19: asymptomatic/few symptoms; 20–39: mild PTSD/subthreshold; 40–59: moderate PTSD/threshold; 60–79: severe PTSD symptoms; and > 80: extreme PTSD symptoms.
