Adequate symptoms assessment is essential in premenstrual syndrome prevention. Assessment scales were designed to support practitioners in identifying adolescents at premenstrual syndrome risk. The Premenstrual syndrome scale is one of the most extensively studied symptoms assessment instruments, although the majority of studies focused on validity rather than reliability.
• The first aim was to measure the interrater reliability of the Premenstrual syndrome scale and its individual items.
• The second aim was to study different statistical approaches regarding interrater reliability estimation.
DESIGN AND METHODS:
An interrater reliability study was conducted in selected private school, Namakkal District. Samples selected through simple random technique. Adolescents (n = 46) were assessed for menstrual five cycles. Data were analyzed using an overall percentage of agreement and the intraclass correlation coefficient.
