While all three versions of the KADS can be used, extensive experience with the scale has demonstrated that the KADS-6 is the version most commonly used in everyday clinical settings, both to screen for possible depression and to monitor the outcome of interventions in youth diagnosed with and treated for depression (personal communication: SK).
A receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed to determine which KADS items most accurately identified participants with MDE.
We believe that there might be more than one KADS
and that one of these substances might be steroid sulfatase, which is an aryl-sulfatase-C enzyme.
Their methodology, called KADS
, advocates a bottom-up approach to expert knowledge modeling where the knowledge modeler begins with an expert verbal protocol, models this with primitive terms, then builds higher levels of analysis on top of the primitive model.
The authors introduce KADS
object, a non-proprietary set of cognitive patterns, as a specific framework for enabling object-oriented analysis and design.
Both papers used KADS
expertise models as the basis for verification, albeit for different application areas.
Such formalizations, and methods for using them, form the basis of the extensively investigated KADS
methodology and library (Schreiber, Wielinga, and Breuker 1993).
