Floods are classified among sudden onset phenomenon and the highest natural disasters happen in Malaysia. Floods have a negative impact on mental health. Mental distress intervention and treatment need to a valid and reliable test to measure its symptoms. In Malaysia, there is a lack of such test. The psychological testing which is meant for clinical setting uses also requires a more accurate test. Therefore, the objective of this study is to replicate the earlier studies of developing e-Psychological Instrument for Flood Victims Version I (e-PIFV-I). The e-PIFV-I is a self-report test which is administered digitally. It has four sub scales; stress, anxiety, depression and trauma. The test is formed for mobile platform purposes which supports android systems. Two replicated studies (study I and study II) have been done to validate the test by using expert judgment method. Results showed that content coefficient validity for each sub-scale of the test ranging from moderate to very strong validity. The coefficient value for the two subscales and the overall scale in study II were increased. This study has theoretical and practical implication in the field of e-testing, clinical psychology and flood digital management.
