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)]. Hu LT, Bentler PM. 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. (2006) 15:309–29. 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. (2018) 88:153–68. It is also noteworthy that the two IGDS9-SF items concerning tolerance and deception yielded a poorer estimation of gaming disorder severity among student players than employed players. Korkeila J, Kaarlas S, Jääskeläinen M, Vahlberg T, Taiminen T. Attached to the web-harmful use of the internet and its correlates.

Thus, researchers should also consider the implication of this wording choice when selecting measures for assessing gaming disorder. ^The methods for testing various types of measurement invariance were commonly adopted in previous studies [e.g., (20–23)]. doi: 10.1089/cyber.2012.0222. 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). As GDT is a newer measure of gaming disorder, sensitivity, and specificity tests should be conducted among clinical samples to obtain a clinically useful cut-off for screening at-risk clients. Int J Soc Psychiatry. First, the study evaluated the utility of both the GDT and IGDS9-SF for use with non-clinical samples. (44); CIGDS by Sigerson et al. Psychiatry Res. 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). doi: 10.1016/j.cpr.2015.11.006, 60. 2019 Jun 14;10:405. doi: 10.3389/fpsyt.2019.00405.

Hence, researchers should take respondents' employment status into consideration when using the IGDS9-SF in future studies. One study tested this questionnaire in multiple locations: Albania, the USA, the UK, and Italy (de Palo et al., 2018). Figure 2. (2012) 24:66–76. (2017) 70:153–63. J Behav Addict.

Both the GDT (r = 0.30) and IGDS9-SF (r = 0.25) had significant positive associations with weekly general gaming time. 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). Hence, the undesirable outcomes associated with a greater amount of time spent on gaming may be perceived differently by student players and employed players.

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. Available online at: https://CRAN.R-project.org/package=psych, 40. 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: 10.1111/add.12849, 27. 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. doi: 10.1007/s11469-019-00088-z. 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. Hence, these findings provide robust support for the structural validity of the GDT. 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. The figures inside the boxes represent the item numbers of the respective measures. 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. González-Blanch C, Medrano LA, Muñoz-Navarro R, Ruíz-Rodríguez P, Moriana JA, Limonero JT, et al. Criterion and construct validity of the IGDT-10 was supported by its strong association with the Problematic Online Gaming Questionnaire and moderate association with weekly gaming time, psychopathological symptoms, and impulsivity. 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. Addict Behav. Apparently, the two clusters of measures differ in certain ways because they are constructed from frameworks with a distinct set of criteria. 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). This study was funded by Hong Kong Research Grants Council's General Research Fund (17400714), and the University of Hong Kong's Seed Fund for Incubating Group-based Collaborative Research Projects (102009405) and Seed Fund for Basic Research (201711159216). The authors declare that the research was conducted in the absence of any commercial or financial relationships that could be construed as a potential conflict of interest. (2012) 31:343–53.

Gaming disorder refers to a condition involving excessive gaming behavior with negative life consequences. The figures inside the boxes represent the item numbers of the respective measures. Potential variations in gender and age were tested because studies have indicated that gaming disorder tends to be more prevalent among male players and younger players [e.g., (24–28)].

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. The editor and reviewers' affiliations are the latest provided on their Loop research profiles and may not reflect their situation at the time of review. Studies have shown that escapism motivation is reported by not only players with abundant gaming disorder symptoms [e.g., (47, 48)] but also those who do not endorse symptoms of such disorder [see review by Lee (49)]. Psychometric assessment of the internet gaming disorder diagnostic criteria: an item response theory study. 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). 2014), the Internet Gaming Disorder Scale–Short Form (IGDS9-SF;PontesandGriffiths 2015b),andtheTen-ItemInternetGamingDisorderTest(IGDT- 10; Király et al. 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. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2017.05.031, 21. 6,4 % berichteten, dass ihnen das Gaming signifikante Probleme bereitete.

More specifically, the findings revealed that Item 3 (tolerance) and Item 7 (deception) had weaker factor loadings in the student sample than in the employed sample. In addition, the GDT demonstrates incremental validity over the IGDS9-SF in explaining gaming time. Participants were asked to rate all items on a 5-point Likert scale, ranging from 1 (never) to 5 (very often). Lopez-Fernandez O, Williams AJ, Griffiths MD, Kuss DJ. This model revealed an adequate and comparable model fit to that of the configural invariance model. Measurement and conceptualization of Gaming Disorder according to the World Health Organization framework: The development of the Gaming Disorder Test Previous research on Gaming Disorder (GD) has highlighted key methodological and conceptual hindrances stemming from the heterogeneity of nomenclature and the use of non-standardized psychometric tools to assess this … 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. doi: 10.1016/j.abrep.2015.04.001, 18. doi: 10.1007/s40429-015-0066-7, 6. To evaluate model fit, we adopted the widely adopted criteria: CFI > 0.095, TLI > 0.095, RMSEA < 0.06, SRMR < 0.08 (41). Kaptsis D, King DL, Delfabbro PH, Gradisar M. Withdrawal symptoms in internet gaming disorder: a systematic review. Measuring DSM-5 internet gaming disorder: Development and validation of a short psychometric scale. 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. (2018) 16:102–24. Gaming disorder is a new classification, so there is no clear treatment plan in place yet. (2019) 8:1691. doi: 10.3390/jcm8101691, 16. We further scrutinized whether the GDT and IGDS9-SF have measurement invariance, which refers to the statistical property whereby respondents reporting the same scores tend to exhibit an identical level of the underlying trait (16). Addict Behav. Accordingly, its findings may not be generalizable to clinical populations, such as individuals diagnosed with clinical depression. 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)]. COVID-19 is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. 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). Descriptive statistics and factor loadings derived from confirmatory factor analytical model for the two gaming disorder measures. 50. Is gaming taking over your life? Addiction. Gaming disorder is officially being recognized as a mental health condition by the WHO. Rosseel Y. lavaan: An R package for structural equation modeling. 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.

Future studies should further validate the GDT with clinical samples to allow comparisons to be made between clinical and non-clinical samples exhibiting gaming disorder symptoms. The present study tested the psychometric properties, including language and gender invariance, in a large international sample of online gamers. To address this important but unexplored issue, the present study evaluated and compared the psychometric properties of the GDT and IGDS9-SF in a sample of 544 adult gamers (56.2% men; mean age = 28.8, SD = 8.55).

Washington, DC: American Psychiatric Association (2013). Hierarchical multiple regression analysis was performed to examine the additional contribution of the newly developed GDT over the existing widely used IGDS9-SF to explaining social anxiety symptoms, depressive symptoms, and gaming time. 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). 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. American Psychiatric Association. 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). For the IGDS9-SF, it is also found to be reliable. 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. doi: 10.3758/s13428-011-0091-y, 46. Behav Inform Technol. Clin Psychol Rev. Most were from Europe (41.3%) and North America (40.5%), while the remaining were from Asia (12.1%) and other regions (9.3%). At the next level, metric invariance analysis imposes additional constraints that require the item factor loadings to be equal across demographic groups. Cyberpsychol Behav Soc Netw. Thus, the results failed to support the incremental validity of the GDT for predicting these two mental health-related criterion measures. Comput Hum Behav. When examining the differences among the increasingly more constrained models, relative changes in not only χ2 but also CFI and RMSEA were examined, because the chi-square difference test has been found oversensitive in measurement invariance analysis. doi: 10.1007/s11469-017-9786-3, 12.

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. The criterion validity was first tested with correlation analysis. This instrument includes nine items that tap the severity of gaming disorder symptoms by evaluating gaming activities occurring over the past 12 months. Sigerson L, Li AY-L, Cheung MW-L, Luk JW, Cheng C. Psychometric properties of the Chinese Internet Gaming Disorder Scale. 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.

Recently, the American Psychiatric Association included Internet gaming disorder (IGD) in the appendix of the 5th edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM–5). Participants were recruited from Prolific Academic, because studies have reported this online participant pool to be viable and valid for academic research; moreover, the participants recruited from this platform were found to be more diverse and less dishonest compared to other similar online platforms (35, 36). 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)]. The data collection process was conducted via an online survey hosted on Qualtrics. (2018) 265:349–54. doi: 10.1016/j.addbeh.2016.03.008, 58. 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 … 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.
