Király O, Sleczka P, Pontes HM, Urbán R, Griffiths MD, Demetrovics Z. Validation of the ten-item internet gaming disorder test (IGDT-10) and evaluation of the nine DSM-5 internet gaming disorder criteria. Gaming disorder is defined in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) as a pattern of gaming behavior (“digital-gaming” or “video-gaming”) characterized by impaired control over gaming, increasing priority given to gaming over other activities to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other interests and daily activities, and continuation or escalation of … doi: 10.1016/j.psychres.2018.05.002, 9.

Although the DSM-5 labels the problem “Internet gaming disorder,” it states that the disorder also involves non-Internet or offline games (3). A new psychological test has been launched to determine whether participants suffer from the World Health Organisation’s newly recognised “gaming disorder.” The online test, which can be completed in around 20 minutes, allows participants to compare their game playing activity with the rest of the community. The Gaming Disorder Test [GDT (2)] was adopted to measure gaming disorder based on the ICD-11 framework. Psychol Assess. Cur Addict Rep. (2015) 2:254–62. The short form of the Social Anxiety Interaction Scale [SIAS-6 (37)] was chosen to measure social anxiety symptoms. As a guide for researchers, our study identifies two major issues to consider when deciding which measure to use to assess gaming disorder. The World Health Organization (WHO) is preparing to release its latest version of the International Classification of Diseases, the ICD-11 in May, 2019. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0206767, 55. Psychol Assess. To be diagnosed with gaming disorder, a patient must have at least five of the listed symptoms. Each item was measured in a 4-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 (rarely or none of the time) to 4 (most or all of the time). The IGDT-10 shows robust psychometric properties and appears suitable for conducting cross-cultural and gender comparisons across seven languages. Hence, researchers requiring methods with a short protocol (e.g., telephone survey) will find the GDT to be a brief, valid assessment tool that can be easily administered to a heterogeneous sample. All parameters are standardized. Wu TY, Lin CY, Årestedt K, Griffiths MD, Broström A, Pakpour AH. Disorder Test (IGD-20 Test; Pontes et al. Cole JC, Rabin AS, Smith TL, Kaufman AS. All authors contributed to the article and approved the submitted version. Taken together, these results indicate the incremental validity of the GDT over the IGDS9-SF in explaining both weekly general and weekly online gaming time. Hierarchical multiple regression analysis revealed that after controlling for the IGDS9-SF, the GDT accounted for a significant proportion of the additional variance in this variable. Comput Hum Behav. doi: 10.1016/j.abrep.2015.04.001, 18. Addict Behav. Hence, the shorter GDT, at just four items, may be a more suitable choice to meet these purposes.

The CES-D had acceptable reliability in our study (Cronbach's α = 0.88). Participants were asked to rate all items on a 5-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 (never) to 5 (very often). doi: 10.1089/cyber.2016.0286, 34. However, it remains unknown whether the GDT, which is based on the ICD-11 framework, is psychometrically similar to or different from the popular nine-item Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short Form (IGDS9-SF) based on the DSM-5 framework. As the IGDS9-SF has consistently been shown to account for the variance in such mental health-related criterion measures as depressive and social anxiety symptoms [e.g., (32, 33)], as well as gaming time [e.g., (10, 34)], it is important to test whether the new GDT can explain the variance in these criterion measures beyond the contribution made by the existing IGDS9-SF.

Pontes HM, Griffiths MD. 2019) Instructions: The questions below are about your gaming activity during the past year (i.e., last 12 months). Given that gaming disorder is a global concern (1), further effort should be made to translate the new and promising GDT into various languages for psychometric validation. At the initial level, configural invariance analysis evaluates whether the number of factors and patterns of free factor loadings are equal across different demographic groups. 3. A recent review (59) maintained that gaming disorder may arise without the presence of withdrawal symptoms, and the current conceptualization of tolerance symptoms has also been criticized for its direct adaptation from substance addiction criteria without considering the nature of gaming activity (51). 49. The short form of the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale [CES-D 10 (38)] was used to evaluate depressive symptoms. The data collection process was conducted via an online survey hosted on Qualtrics. Struct Equ Model. doi: 10.1037/1040-3590.16.4.360, 39. (2011) 51:492–6. Festl R, Scharkow M, Quandt T.

Specifically, the configural invariance was tested by constraining the unidimensional factor structure to be invariant, but freely estimating the factor loadings and item intercepts. Compared to the IGDS9-SF whose length is twice longer, the GDT provides an equally good or even better explanation of the data, as indicated by its incremental validity over the IGDS9-SF in accounting for variances in gaming time, as well as its scalar invariance property concerning employment status that is not found for the IGDS9-SF. The participants provided online informed consent to participate in this study. However, the optimal measurement approaches for GD are currently unclear. Cogn Emot.

Hence, our findings imply that this particular IGDS9-SF item may not be sufficiently sensitive to differentiate between individuals reporting numerous gaming disorder symptoms and those reporting few such symptoms. Measuring DSM-5 internet gaming disorder: Development and validation of a short psychometric scale. Eligible participants were adults (i.e., aged over 18) who responded “yes” to the screening question “Have you played any video game in the past 12 months?” To ensure good data quality, the participants were screened based on their reputation on the survey platform (i.e., >95% approval rating). This unidimensional, non-clinical measure is comprised of 10 items that examined the frequency and duration of various symptoms of depression. Lemmens JS, Valkenburg PM, Gentile DA. J Psychiatr Res. (44); CIGDS by Sigerson et al. The comprehensive scope of the IGDS9-SF makes it potentially more appropriate for use in studies examining multidimensional gaming-related constructs that evaluate various aspects of gaming (e.g., gaming motivation, player identification). (2012) 48:1–36. (2007) 21:26–55. Based on these findings, we advise researchers to consider the factors of brevity and comprehensiveness when choosing an appropriate measure of gaming disorder. eCollection 2019. (2019) 90:1–9. This scale adopts a unidimensional measurement approach to evaluate social apprehension based on six items. Kaptsis D, King DL, Delfabbro PH, Gradisar M.

Gaming disorder was listed as a condition for further study in the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) in 2013, and measures of the disorder have mushroomed in the years since. Means that gaming is given priority over any other activity, work or school, or any other interest. Int J Ment Health Addict. doi: 10.1089/cyber.2010.0345, 64. Addict Behav. For instance, one item included in the IGDS9-SF has stronger emphasis on the interpersonal difficulties of players compared to that of the GDT. 4. We conducted a psychometric investigation of the GDT developed based on the ICD-11 framework (2) and the IGDS9-SF developed based on the DSM-5 framework (7). Hence, although we aimed to evaluate and compare the psychometric properties of the GDT (derived from the ICD-11 framework) with the IGDS9-SF (derived from the DSM-5 framework), researchers should be cautious in generalizing the present findings to other assessment tools developed under the DSM-5 framework.

Thus, it is important to consider how monetary and non-monetary (e.g., time) investment may differentially influence distinct groups of players. To evaluate measurement invariance, we performed multigroup CFA (16) to assess their measurement and scaling properties across three sample characteristics: gender, age, and employment status. As shown in Table 3, after controlling for the existing IGDS9-SF measure, the newer GDT measure was unable to explain a significant proportion of the additional variance for social anxiety and depressive symptoms. Confirmatory factor analytical model testing the criterion validity of nine-item Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short Form. In contrast, recent findings indicate that games encouraging high in-game expenditure tend to jeopardize adolescents, who are not financially independent, and may thus have to deceive family members or friends to cover that expenditure (57).

For instance, both Item 3 (tolerance) and Item 7 (deception) were evaluated based on the “amount of time” spent on gaming. (2017) 75:652–9. In addition, the unidimensionality of such measure has also been supported by most of the fit indices; but Item 8 of this measure— “Do you play in order to temporarily escape or relieve a negative mood (e.g., helplessness, guilt, anxiety)?—had a particularly weak factor loading. The Internet Gaming Disorder Scale Short Form (IGDS9-SF) is a nine question questionnaire that mirrors the nine diagnostic symptoms for IGD. For employment status, five options were provided: (1) student, (2) full-time worker, (3) part-time worker, (4) unemployed, and (5) not in paid work.

For the characteristic of employment status, only configural invariance was supported by the model fit indices, and non-invariance was identified in the metric invariance level, as indicated by the increase in RMSEA (i.e., 0.016) and significant chi-square differences. Wang H-Y, Cheng C. New perspectives on the prevalence and associated factors of gaming disorder in Hong Kong community adults: A generational approach. In addition, results indicated both language and gender invariance on the level of scalar invariance. Similar to weekly general gaming time, both the GDT (r = 0.29) and IGDS9-SF (r = 0.22) were positively associated with weekly online gaming time. doi: 10.1016/j.chb.2017.09.023, 52. Sigerson L, Cheng C. Scales for measuring user engagement with social network sites: a systematic review of psychometric properties.

This comprehensive systematic review aimed to identify and evaluate all available English-language GD tools and their corresponding evidence. For the IGDS9-SF, the unidimensional model structure had an acceptable fit to the data: χ2 = 71.223, CFI = 0.952, TLI = 0.954, RMSEA = 0.064, and SRMR = 0.060. Comput Hum Behav. Motivational components of tolerance in internet gaming disorder. The IGDS9-SF has been widely adopted and validated in a range of cultural regions such as Australia, Hong Kong, Portugal, and Turkey [e.g., (8–11)]. Specifically, Item 2 of the GDT reads: “I have continued gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences,” whereas the corresponding item in the IGDS9-SF (Item 6) reads: “Have you continued your gaming activity despite knowing it was causing problems between you and other people?” Hence, recent experiences of interpersonal problems are necessary for the item to be endorsed for the IGDS9-SF, but the item of GDT is endorsed for respondents who have recent experiences of problems in any life domains (e.g., work/studies, health, and interpersonal relations).

For instance, long gaming time has been identified as a concern for employed players, as it can interfere with their work performance and even result in disciplinary action [e.g., (55, 56)]. Confirmatory factor analytical model testing the criterion validity of Gaming Disorder Test. doi: 10.18637/jss.v048.i02, 41.

Neuropsychiatry. (2018) 22:52–4. doi: 10.1007/s11469-017-9786-3, 12. Such incremental validity concerning gaming time may reflect potential differences between the more concise ICD-11 criteria and more comprehensive DSM-5 criteria. Yee N. The demographics, motivations, and derived experiences of users of massively multi-user online graphical environments. Presence. As gaming disorder measures are often used in large-scale population surveys with heterogeneous community samples [e.g., (17–19)], measurement invariance is essential for detecting the influence of demographic characteristics in between-group comparisons. The Gaming Disorder Test (GDT) (Pontes et al. Each item was measured on a 5-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 (never) to 5 (very often). For the GDT, the CFA model showed a good fit to the data, as indicated by all five model fit indices: χ2 = 5.646, CFI = 0.991, TLI = 0.992, RMSEA = 0.017, and SRMR = 0.016. Sensitivity of goodness of fit indexes to lack of measurement invariance. All of the factor loadings were statistically significant; however, Item 8 (escape) had a factor loading below 0.50 (see the lower panel of Table 1).

Previous multinational comparisons have identified considerable differences in thinking and behavior among the inhabitants of diverse cultural regions (69), and the measurement invariance of cultural region should be established to allow more extensive cross-cultural comparisons of the prevalence of gaming disorder. Second, evidence of configural, metric, and scalar invariance was found for GDT concerning all three demographic characteristics (i.e., gender, age, and employment status), whereas for the IGDS9-SF, such evidence was found for gender and age alone, with the results only partially supporting metric invariance for employment status. No use, distribution or reproduction is permitted which does not comply with these terms.

Measurement Invariance of the Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short-Form (IGDS9-SF) between the United States of America, India and the United Kingdom. Moreover, brief measures are also preferred for use in online surveys, because a shorter survey length has been associated with lower drop-out rates (62). The present findings constituted robust evidence of the GDT's scalar measurement invariance for the demographic characteristics of gender, age, and employment status (see the upper panel of Table 2). Deleuze J, Rochat L, Romo L, Van der Linden M, Achab S, Thorens G, et al. This model revealed an adequate and comparable model fit to that of the configural invariance model.

However, it is likely that the severity of gaming disorder for players with a sparse social network may be underestimated because they tend to have fewer undesirable interpersonal experiences, compared to their counterparts having a dense social network in which interpersonal conflicts are more likely to occur [e.g., (66, 67)].
