          Abstract

          Resumo Objetivo Apresentar o processo de adaptação transcultural do Mobile Device Proficiency Questionnaire na população idosa brasileira e sua validade de conteúdo. Método Trata-se de um estudo de validação. Foram realizadas a tradução, retrotradução, análise do comitê de especialistas e pré-teste com 32 pessoas idosas para avaliar a equivalência semântica e cultural. Resultados A versão brasileira do instrumento manteve as categorias da versão original, avaliando de tarefas básicas a avançadas, divididas em oito subescalas avaliativas: funções básicas, comunicação, armazenamento de dados e arquivos, internet, calendário, entretenimento, privacidade e soluções de problemas e gerenciamento de software. Nesses domínios são investigadas a facilidade de uso e a experiência com as funções do dispositivo móvel. Conclusão A adaptação transcultural mostrou que o instrumento avaliativo é uma ferramenta útil e com alto potencial para a avaliação da proficiência de pessoas idosas no uso de dispositivos móveis. O instrumento permite estabelecer um panorama das competências digitais na população idosa, além de favorecer no processo de programação dos serviços de inclusão digital.

          Abstract Objective To present the process of cross-cultural adaptation of the Mobile Device Proficiency Questionnaire in the Brazilian older population and its content validity. Method This is a validation study. Translation, back-translation, analysis by an expert committee, and also a pre-test with 32 older adults were conducted to assess semantic and cultural equivalence. Results The Brazilian version of the instrument maintained the categories of the original version, evaluating tasks ranging from basic to advanced, divided into eight evaluative subscales: basic functions, communication, data and file storage, internet usage, calendar, entertainment, privacy, and problem-solving and software management. Within these domains, the ease of use and experience with mobile device functions are examined. Conclusion The cross-cultural adaptation demonstrated that the evaluative instrument is a useful tool with high potential for assessing the proficiency of older adults in using mobile devices. The instrument enables the establishment of a panorama of digital competencies in the older population, facilitating the planning of digital inclusion services.

          Propriedades psicométricas na avaliação de instrumentos: avaliação da confiabilidade e da validade

          Resumo Instrumentos de medida desempenham um importante papel na pesquisa, na prática clínica e na avaliação de saúde. Estudos sobre a qualidade desses instrumentos fornecem evidências de como as propriedades de medida foram avaliadas, auxiliando o pesquisador na escolha da melhor ferramenta para utilização. A confiabilidade e a validade são consideradas as principais propriedades de medida de tais instrumentos. Confiabilidade é a capacidade em reproduzir um resultado de forma consistente, no tempo e no espaço. Validade refere-se à propriedade de um instrumento medir exatamente o que se propõe. Neste artigo são apresentados, discutidos e exemplificados os principais critérios e testes estatísticos empregados na avaliação da confiabilidade (estabilidade, consistência interna e equivalência) e validade (conteúdo, critério e construto) de instrumentos. A avaliação das propriedades de medida de instrumentos é útil para subsidiar a seleção de instrumentos válidos e confiáveis, de modo a assegurar a qualidade dos resultados dos estudos.

              A Spanish Adaptation of the Computer and Mobile Device Proficiency Questionnaires (CPQ and MDPQ) for Older Adults

              Technology can help support the goal of many older adults to live independently, though cognitive, attitudinal, and other barriers often result in a “digital divide” in which older adults use and adopt new technology at a lower rate compared to younger adults. Due to the many potential benefits of technology it is not surprising that interest in tools that assess technology proficiency among older adults has increased. These tools can help support older adult technology research and training. However, to understand these issues more broadly, especially cross-cultural determinants of technology proficiency, translated, validated, and standardized measures of proficiency are necessary. For example, according to the last Eurobarometer (European Commission, 2015), Spain has experienced the largest increase in technology adoption among European Union nations in the past few years, indicating potential cultural mediation of technology adoption and use. To benefit the investigation of cross-cultural differences and their causes, we adapted the Mobile Device Proficiency Questionnaire (MDPQ) and Computer Proficiency Questionnaire (CPQ) for older adults in Spain, including the full and brief forms of each measure. Consistent with English versions of the questionnaires, the scales and their subscales were found to be reliable and valid measures of mobile device and computer proficiency in Spanish older adults. However, in contrast to earlier studies, the factor structure for both questionnaires simplified into two factors for the population under study. We conclude that the Spanish versions of the MDPQ and CPQ can be employed as useful tools for measuring mobile device and computer proficiency in the Spanish older adult population for research and training purposes.
