1 Measuring Presence : The Temple Presence Inventory

  title={1 Measuring Presence : The Temple Presence Inventory},
  author={Matthew Lombard and Theresa Ditton and Lissa Weinstein and Temple},
This paper describes the development and testing of the Temple Presence Inventory. The TPI questionnaire is a multidimensional, literature-based measure of telepresence that has demonstrated sensitivity to media form and content in studies discussed here.

A Survey of Presence and Related Concepts

A meta-analysis of existing presence models is presented and a model of presence informed by Slater’s Place Illusion and Plausibility Illusion constructs is proposed.

Adaptation and Validation of the Temple Presence Inventory in a Portuguese Population

The results confirm the appropriateness of the version adapted to the Portuguese language of the TPI and that it can be used in research projects aiming to evaluate Presence in the Portuguese-speaking population (Europe).

Measuring Presence in Virtual Environments: A Survey

This article reviews the different definitions of presence and the main proposed methods to measure it through the analysis of 1,214 papers published in the past 30 years and identified 29 main factors to evoke presence in virtual environments.

Assessing presence in virtual environments: adaptation of the psychometric properties of the Presence Questionnaire to the Portuguese populations

It is considered that the adapted Portuguese version of the PQ, with 21 items, forms a robust and valid questionnaire whose use is recommended to evaluate Presence in virtual reality research programmes, provided that they use samples of the Portuguese language (Europe).

The Relationship Between Cybersickness, Sense of Presence, and the Users’ Expectancy and Perceived Similarity Between Virtual and Real Places

A positive correlation was found between the global sense of presence and perceived similarity and users’ expectancy for the non-immersive VR setup and the global cybersickness for the immersive VR setup.


This dissertation investigates the extent to which a media audience’s degree of technology acceptance (as a mediator) and interactivity of the media influence the user’s sense of presence, enjoyment,

The Reality of Digital Travel

It is the experience that counts, there and then. When a person talks about the experience, he or she can also reflect on and interpret the experience. In this chapter we use findings from empirical

Keeping It Real! Investigating Presence in Asymmetric Virtual Reality

The necessity to preserve the sense of presence in virtual reality (VR) is discussed and an experiment is outlined that allows for different methods of collaboration between immersed users and external facilitators in order to discern their effect on presence.

Using First-Person View Drones through Head-Mounted Displays: Are They Suitable for Education?

This study examined in-service teachers’ perceptions regarding spatial presence, simulator sickness and usability of First-Person view drones through Head-Mounted Displays in order to determine the

Measuring the quality of interaction in mobile robotic telepresence systems using presence, spatial formations and sociometry

A mobile robotic telepresence (MRP) system is characterized by a video conferencing system which is mounted on a mobile robotic base. The system allows remote pilot users to move the robot around w



A Cross-Media Presence Questionnaire: The ITC-Sense of Presence Inventory

Preliminary analyses described here demonstrate that the ITC-SOPI is reliable and valid, but more rigorous testing of its psychometric properties and applicability to interactive virtual environments is required.

Social presence and group attraction: exploring the effects of awareness systems in the home

The experiment has shown that providing awareness information increases the social presence and the group attraction felt by individuals towards remote partners.

The Impact of Personality Factors on the Experience of Spatial Presence

The aim of this paper is to present an experimental investigation conducted to assess the impact of personality factors on the formation of Spatial Presence. Four different media -linear text,

Measuring Presence in Virtual Environments: A Presence Questionnaire

Combined results from four experiments lead to the following conclusions: the PQ and ITQ are internally consistent measures with high reliability; there is a weak but consistent positive relation between presence and task performance in VEs; individuals who report more simulator sickness symptoms in VE report less presence than those who report fewer symptoms.

How Colorful Was Your Day? Why Questionnaires Cannot Assess Presence in Virtual Environments

    Presence: Teleoperators & Virtual Environments
  • 2004
It is argued that a scientific basis for presence as it's usually understood in virtual environments research, can not be established on the basis of postexperience presence questionnaires alone, and that presence researchers must move away from heavy reliance on questionnaires in order to make any progress.

At the Heart of It All: The Concept of Presence

A number of emerging technologies including virtual reality, simulation rides, video conferencing, home theater, and high definition television are designed to provide media users with an illusion

Presence Within a Mixed Reality Environment

Overall, intrinsic motivation, confidence and intention to re-visit Desert Rain were high, however, age was negatively associated with both spatial presence and confidence to play, and various problems in navigating the environment were identified.

Measuring the Sense of Presence and its Relations to Fear of Heights in Virtual Environments

This article describes a study in which a genuine effect of presence--the development of fear of virtual stimuli--was provoked and the sense of presence within this situation was measured, showing that fear increased with higher presence.

Theoretical and empirical support for distinctions between components and conditions of Spatial Presence

One of the most important measures of Presence is the questionnaire. Different instruments have been introduced; however, they are based on different and partly implicit theoretical assumptions. The
