Adaptation of Internet Gaming Cognition Scale to Turkish: Reliability and Validity Study

Suleyman Cakiroglu, Vahdet Gormez.

Abstract
Objective: This study aims to investigate the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of Internet Gaming Cognition Scale.

Method: The sample of the study was created by reaching 327 adolescents and adults playing games through social media tools, gaming forums and platforms by using an online form created on the internet. Language equivalence study of the scale was conducted by two experts one of whose native language was English and fluent in Turkish, and the other, vice versa. Reliability of the questionnaire was evaluated by test-retest method and Cronbach’s alpha internal consistency analysis. Construct validity of the scale was examined by confirmatory factor analysis. SPSS and AMOS 26 softwares were used for statistical analyses.

Results: Cronbach’s alpha coefficient for internal consistency was 0.91. Item-total score correlations varied between 0.32 and 0.69 (p<0.01). Test-retest score averages did not differ for both the total and subgroup scores. Test-retest correlation was calculated as 0.849 (p<0.01). Confirmatory factor analyses for construct validity showed that factor loadings of items varied between 0.34 and 0.73.

Conclusion: This study concluded the validity and reliability of the Turkish version of Internet Gaming Cognition Scale.

Key words: Adolescent, Gaming disorder, Cognition, Scale
