Presence results

Posted by mikestatic on 10 Mar 2013 at 20:53 GMT

The results section summarizes that the Superflight participants reported more presence than the Helicopter flight participants (but not to statistical significance). However the corresponding table 4 scores indicate that the helicopter condition had greater mean presence scores. It occurs to me that the measure of presence may have been reversed, however, the scoring of the items is not evident from the supplementary information. Can the authors please clarify this discrepancy?

Lower scores mean higher presence; it is an inverse relationship.
