Gaming disorder is officially being recognized as a mental health condition by the WHO. Background and aims: The Ten-Item Internet Gaming Disorder Test (IGDT-10) is a short screening instrument developed to assess Internet gaming disorder (IGD) … (2021) 114:106574. doi: 10.1016/j.chb.2020.106574, 28. To address potential measurement errors, a CFA model was then constructed to further examine the criterion validity of the GDT and IGDS9-SF, respectively (see Figures 1, 2). This unidimensional, non-clinical measure is comprised of 10 items that examined the frequency and duration of various symptoms of depression. Pers Individ Differ. NIH Figure 1.

New perspectives on the prevalence and associated factors of gaming disorder in Hong Kong community adults: A generational approach. As impulsivity has frequently been identified as a risk factor for such disorder [e.g., (60, 61)], brief assessment tools are preferable for use among individuals with high levels of impulsivity (2). 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. MMORPGs memungkinkan terjadi-nya … Psychiatry Clin Neurosci. Means that gaming is given priority over any other activity, work or school, or any other interest. Both measures are found to be valid, reliable tools to assess gaming disorder; however, some notable differences have been identified regarding the properties of measurement invariance. A third major factor to consider is item wording. Epub 2017 Feb 21. In this study, data were collected from 7,193 participants comprising Hungarian (n = 3,924), Iranian (n = 791), English-speaking (n = 754), French-speaking (n = 421), Norwegian (n = 195), Czech (n = 496), and Peruvian (n = 612) online gamers via gaming-related websites and gaming-related social-networking-site groups. Following the conventional practice of incremental validity analysis, only the constructs identified as significantly associated with the two gaming disorder measures were included in the multiple regression analysis (43).  |  The nine-item Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short Form [IGDS9-SF; (7)] was selected to assess gaming disorder based on the DSM-5 framework. 1.

However, some scholars maintain that in-game monetary expenditure should also be acknowledged as a form of investment (52–54). The findings also provide support for its structural validity in terms of the excellent model fit across all fit indices, indicating that the unidimensional structure as described in the ICD-11 framework reflects the optimal factor structure for the construct of gaming disorder. doi: 10.1080/02646838.2017.1310374, 22.

Their weekly gaming time was calculated by multiplying the daily gaming time by 7 for each mode of video gaming. As the scale items for both measures have five response options, the diagonally weighted least-squares method (DWLS) was used to estimate the model because of its suitability for CFA with ordered categorical variables. Macey J, Hamari J. eSports, skins and loot boxes: participants, practices and problematic behaviour associated with emergent forms of gambling. Although the DSM-5 labels the problem “Internet gaming disorder,” it states that the disorder also involves non-Internet or offline games (3). 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) was developed after gaming disorder was officially included in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) in 2018. However, the IGDS9-SF is preferred for screening clients who are at-risk for gaming disorder, because an optimal cut-off value has been identified for this measure with high sensitivity and specificity for distinguishing between gamers clinically diagnosed as having gaming disorder and those without this diagnosis (68). For the GDT, the present findings show that it is a reliable measure. The Ten-Item Internet Gaming Disorder Test (IGDT-10) is a short screening instrument developed to assess Internet gaming disorder (IGD) as proposed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of MentalDisorders, fifth edition (DSM-5), adopting a concise, clear, and consistent item-wording. Apparently, the two clusters of measures differ in certain ways because they are constructed from frameworks with a distinct set of criteria. J Behav Addict. Both the GDT (r = 0.30) and IGDS9-SF (r = 0.25) had significant positive associations with weekly general gaming time. Compared to the GDT, the IGDS9-SF offers a more comprehensive examination of gaming disorder based on the nine criteria. Motivations to play specifically predict excessive involvement in massively multiplayer online role-playing games: evidence from an online survey. 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. Psychol Assess. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0193356, 24. doi: 10.1089/cyber.2015.0605, 11. (2018) 17:22–7. More recently, gaming disorder was officially included as a mental health disorder in the 11th version of the International Classification of Diseases [ICD-11 (12)] to facilitate further research and the formulation of social policy. (2019) 32:291–302. Table 1. Choi S-W, Kim H, Kim G-Y, Jeon Y, Park S, Lee J-Y, 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). Tolerance in internet gaming disorder: a need for increasing gaming time or something else? (2018) 86:69–76. The short form of the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale [CES-D 10 (38)] was used to evaluate depressive symptoms. The ICD-11 framework consists of four criteria: (1) impaired control over gaming; (2) increasing priority given to gaming as gaming takes precedence over other interests; (3) the continuation of gaming despite knowledge of the undesirable consequences, and (4) the problematic gaming behavior has led to significant disruptions to major life domains (e.g., interpersonal, job/academic performance) that last for at least 12 months. Academics in the UK, China and Australia have created the first psychological test for gaming disorder. 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. CFA was conducted for assessing structural validity. Burduli E, Barbosa-Leiker C, Fleming S, Hollins Martin CJ, Martin CR.

State University of New York at Albany, Albany, NY (2017) (Unpublished Doctoral Dissertation). Based on these findings, we advise researchers to consider the factors of brevity and comprehensiveness when choosing an appropriate measure of gaming disorder. The Internet Gaming Disorder Scale Short Form (IGDS9-SF) is a nine question questionnaire that mirrors the nine diagnostic symptoms for IGD. It is important to acknowledge that there are at least six other assessment tools that have been developed based on this framework, and a recent review has documented notable differences among these instruments regarding the number of items (ranging from 9 and 27 items), response format, and psychometric properties (6). doi: 10.1089/glr2.2018.2216, 53. Accordingly, its findings may not be generalizable to clinical populations, such as individuals diagnosed with clinical depression. Second, our participants were recruited primarily from North America and Europe, and hence the results may not be generalizable to other cultural regions, including East Asia and South America. 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). Specifically, this study compares several types of validity of the newly developed GDT (2) and the widely adopted IGDS9-SF (7). 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). According to initial studies conducted in 2014, the instrument showed promising psychometric characteristics. 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). Int J Ment Health Addict. Epub 2017 Jun 2. (2002) 9:233–55. Wong PW, Li TM, Chan M, Law Y, Chau M, Cheng C, et al. (2019) 101:105969. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2019.04.027, 10. In addition, the issues of non-normality were not pertinent for our analyses, because the DWLS method was utilized. For instance, the results showed the GDT to have incremental validity over the IGDS9-SF in predicting both general and online gaming time, but no such validity was found for either depressive or social anxiety symptoms. Another major factor to consider is the comprehensiveness of a measure, that is, whether the measure sufficiently examines all important domains of gaming disorder (63). 2019) Instructions: The questions below are about your gaming activity during the past year (i.e., last 12 months). doi: 10.1016/j.chb.2018.01.023, 32.

A change ≤-0.01 in the CFI and a change greater than or equal to 0.015 in the RMSEA were chosen as the cut-offs for non-invariance [see (16, 42)]. All authors contributed to the article and approved the submitted version. NLM To be diagnosed with gaming disorder, a patient must have at least five of the listed symptoms. Gaming Disorder. 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.

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)]. Research … In addition to the criterion of “escape,” several additional criteria in the DSM-5 framework, including withdrawal and tolerance symptoms, have also been scrutinized concerning their relevance to gaming behavior [e.g., (50, 58)].

Hence, a partial invariance model with the two non-invariant factor loadings left unconstrained was constructed. Moreover, all of the factor loadings were statistically significant, and no factor loading for an individual item was below 0.70 (see the upper panel of Table 1). For instance, one item included in the IGDS9-SF has stronger emphasis on the interpersonal difficulties of players compared to that of the GDT. For the present sample, the self-reported weekly gaming time was 19.9 hours (SD = 14.9) for general gaming and 13.2 h for online gaming (SD = 12.8). For example, the more concise ICD-11 framework places greater emphasis on the functional impairment aspect of gaming disorder (13). 2014), the Internet Gaming Disorder Scale–Short Form (IGDS9-SF;PontesandGriffiths 2015b),andtheTen-ItemInternetGamingDisorderTest(IGDT- 10; Király et al. doi: 10.1016/j.chb.2018.06.033, 2.

The results were consistent with the correlation analysis. The results revealed both measures to have good reliability, structural validity, and criterion validity, with the exception of one IGDS9-SF item with a low factor loading. Cross-cultural invariance of the birth satisfaction scale-revised (BSS-R): comparing UK and US samples. 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. doi: 10.1037/a0024544, 38. To evaluate model fit, we adopted the widely adopted criteria: CFI > 0.095, TLI > 0.095, RMSEA < 0.06, SRMR < 0.08 (41). (2010) 29:601–13.

The findings of this study have several implications for future research on gaming disorder. The short form of the Social Anxiety Interaction Scale [SIAS-6 (37)] was chosen to measure social anxiety symptoms. However, in our psychometric analyses, we identified several IGDS9-SF items that require further scrutiny. (20)]. Lastly, the present study employs the IGDS9-SF as the assessment tool developed under the DSM-5 framework. Measurement invariance for gender, age, and employment status for two gaming disorder measures. Cyberpsychol Behav Soc Netw. (2003) 15:456–66. (2012) 31:343–53. GD, gaming disorder (assessed by IGDS9-SF); SA, social anxiety symptoms; DEP, depressive symptoms. (2015) 61:330–42. Academic researchers from universities in the United Kingdom, Germany, China and Australia have released a new psychological test that allows gamers to … Since the DSM-5 framework's proposal, scholars have advocated for the establishment of standardized assessment tools based on the nine DSM-5 criteria (4, 5). The IGD-20 Test includes 20 items reflecting the nine criteria of IGD as in the DSM-5 [1] and incorporated the theoretical framework of the components model of addiction (i.e., salience, mood modification, tolerance, withdrawal symptoms, conflict and relapse) [20] . In response, researchers have adopted the DSM-5 framework to develop measures of gaming disorder [e.g., (6)], with one of the most popular measure being the nine-item Internet Gaming Disorder Scale-Short Form [IGDS9-SF; (7)]. (2018) 265:349–54. The present study provides empirical support for both the GDT and IGDS9-SF as valid measures for symptom assessment. For instance, past studies have identified several symptoms included in the ICD-11 framework (i.e., “loss of control” and “giving up other activities”) to make strong contribution in identifying gaming disorder [e.g., (13, 14)]. doi: 10.1016/j.abrep.2015.04.001, 18. (2014) 20:129–36. J Clin Med. 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). This scale includes four items to examine recurrent gaming over a 12-month period, regardless of the mode of gaming (e.g., online or offline) or the device used for playing (e.g., consoles, mobile devices, or personal computers). Hence, the shorter GDT, at just four items, may be a more suitable choice to meet these purposes. To facilitate further analysis, the employment status is further recoded as a three-level construct, including student, full-time worker, and non-full-time worker, with the level of non-full-time worker comprising participants who were currently working part time, unemployed, and not in paid work.

Conventionally, gaming time has been conceptualized as the primary form of such investment [e.g., (50, 51)]. Figure 2. Finally, the GDT displayed incremental validity over the IGDS9-SF in explaining gaming time, but not social anxiety and depressive symptoms. (2007) 21:26–55. Such findings can inform researchers and practitioners the unique contribution of the newly developed GDT, and such information is useful for assisting their decisions regarding whether to include the new or existing measures in their protocol.

In contrast, the more comprehensive DSM-5 framework encompasses a wider variety of cognitive and behavioral manifestations of the disorder. Thus, the results failed to support the incremental validity of the GDT for predicting these two mental health-related criterion measures. 2019 Jun 14;10:405. doi: 10.3389/fpsyt.2019.00405. 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. Laconi S, Pirès S, Chabrol H. Internet gaming disorder, motives, game genres and psychopathology. Such variations may be attributable to the different interpretations of these items regarding in-game investment. As a guide for researchers, our study identifies two major issues to consider when deciding which measure to use to assess gaming disorder. Although several items appear in both the GDT and IGDS9-SF, it is necessary to scrutinize the differences regarding the wording of this common set of items. Griffiths M, King D, Demetrovics Z. DSM-5 internet gaming disorder needs a unified approach to assessment. Front Psychiatry. 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).
