It is known that depression constitutes the main cause of suicidal behavior and is the 6th leading cause of death in developed countries. Depression can occur in anyone, from children to elderly. This study aims at determining the results of the structural / internal validity test for the Mood and Anxiety Symptoms Questionnaire-Anhedonic Depression (MASQ-AD) using Indonesian Language. This study was conducted with 752 participants aged 15-40 year old. The method used was non-experimental quantitative methods. The nonprobability sampling with convenience sampling technique was used in selecting the participants. Based on data analyses (validity test of measuring instrument using confirmatory factor analysis), the results show that it is the measuring instrument of MASQ-AD which has good structural validity. Although the items have been translated into Indonesian, all items of the MASQ-AD have factor loads of ≥ 0.50. Thus, it fulfills the item validity criteria. The measuring instrument of MASQ-AD looks valid for measuring the level of depression in individuals. It is because MASQ-AD has a higher positive and significant relationship on the BDI-II depression measuring instrument than the BAI anxiety measuring instrument.
