The Extended Reality Presence Scale
Abstract: This study examined the development of a new instrument—the extended reality presence scale (XRPS) – for evaluating presence in immersive videos for pre-service teachers. Mixed reality shows potential in improving the training of future educators and instructors. As such, the field needs adequate tools for assessing and evaluating such an innovation. This scale has been inspired by the Multimodal Presence Scale for virtual reality environments and revised according to the specific facets related to pre-service teachers learning. Cognitive interviews (n=15) were conducted for testing the XRPS items and its interpretations. Results point to a confirmation of the instrument with minor changes for improving its clarity and extending its range of application.
