Abstract

Presence is a key variable in virtual reality. A differentiated assessment of presence is necessary to com-pare different versions of VR environments. The Multimodal Presence Scale (MPS) by Makransky, Lilleholt, and Aaby (2017) was developed to measure physical, social and self-presence. However, the scale is not yet available in German. We provide a professional translation of the scale and first indicators of its reliability, esp. in the context of assessing social presence, an increasingly important aspect of presence.
