Abstract: With the development of new technologies in the field of psychotherapy comes the need for valid and reliable tests that allow us to research the presence of symptoms in an online format. The aim of the following paper was to develop a scale to be used in the virtual format, which allows us to measure symptomatology for anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships and psychoticism. 550 adults participated, who answered an online questionnaire that included four dimensions (anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships, psychoticism). Results shows an adequate internal consistency and construct validity for the four dimensions tested. Also, for the external validity significant relationships were found whit the OQ-45 and SA-45. The test we constructed seems to be a valid tool for psychotherapeutic use. However, it is necessary to continue analyzing its psychometrics, taking into account patients who have the specific diagnoses evaluated by the test.

Palabras clave : psychometry; depression; anxiety; interpersonal relations; psychoticism; global symptoms.
