The Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) has been widely used to predict user acceptance and use based on perceived ease of use and usefulness. However, in order to design effective training interventions to improve user acceptance, it is necessary to better understand the antecedents and determinants of key acceptance constructs. In this research, we focus on understanding the determinants of perceived ease of use. Data from three experiments spanning 108 subjects and six different systems… Expand
Exploring the Psychological Determinants of Perceived Ease of Use and Usefulness

TLDR
This paper reports on an exploratory study investigating the effect of various antecedent variables on PEOU and PU for technologies of varying complexity to converge on an experimental model that focuses on the salient variables. Expand
Determinants of Perceived Ease of Use: Integrating Control, Intrinsic Motivation, and Emotion into the Technology Acceptance Model
TLDR
This work presents and tests an anchoring and adjustment-based theoretical model of the determinants of system-specific perceived ease of use, and proposes control, intrinsic motivation, and emotion as anchors that determine early perceptions about the ease ofuse of a new system. Expand
The Impact of Computer Self-Efficacy and System Complexity on Acceptance of Information Technologies
TLDR
Overall, both CSE and SC demonstrated significant direct effects on perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use as well as indirect effects on attitude and behavioral intention. Expand
Why do people use information technology? A critical review of the technology acceptance model
TLDR
It is concluded that TAM is a useful model, but has to be integrated into a broader one which would include variables related to both human and social change processes, and to the adoption of the innovation model. Expand
The Influence of Attitude on the Acceptance and Use of Information Systems
The nomological network of the technology acceptance model is expanded through the addition of affective and task-preparation variables as antecedents to traditional predictors of technologyExpand

TLDR
The results indicated that computer self-efficacy and system complexity had significant direct effects on perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use as well as indirect effects on attitude and behavioral intention, however, the effect of perceived easy use on attitude was stronger than that of perceived usefulness.

Technology Acceptance Model' Concepts, Contribution, Limitation, and Adoption in Education
TLDR
This paper gives a review of the present state of research on the Technology Acceptance Model and offers a concise entry point to the theory's background and its adoption in education, which might be purposely advantageous for novice readers. Expand
Extending the technology acceptance model: the influence of perceived user resources
TLDR
Perceived user resources are examined, which are measures of self-efficacy and perceived behavioral control that concentrate on how well individuals perceive they can execute specific courses of action, that can facilitate or inhibit such behaviors. Expand
The Technology Acceptance Model: A Meta-Analysis of Empirical Findings
TLDR
A meta-analysis based on 26 selected empirical studies suggests that both the correlation between usefulness and acceptance, and the relationship between ease of use and acceptance is weak, and its significance does not pass the fail-safe test. Expand
The Impact of Internal Locus of Control on Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use in E-Learning: An Extension of the Technology Acceptance Model
  • Ai-Hua Tseng, J. Hsia
  • Psychology, Computer Science
  • 2008 International Conference on Cyberworlds
  • 2008
TLDR
The main effort is to integrate internal locus of control (ILOC) and computer self-efficacy (CSE) to examine the applicability of the technology acceptance model (TAM) in explaining employees' decisions to accept e-learning system. Expand

TLDR
Overall, TAM provides an informative representation of the mechanisms by which design choices influence user acceptance, and should therefore be helpful in applied contexts for forecasting and evaluating user acceptance of information technology. Expand

Modeling the Determinants of Perceived Ease of Use
TLDR
Test extensions of the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) aimed at predicting senior consumers’ acceptance and use of self-service banking technologies (SSBTs) indicated that selfefficacy, technology discomfort, perceived risk and personal contact were determinants of perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness.

Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of Use, and User Acceptance of Information Technology
TLDR
Regression analyses suggest that perceived ease of use may actually be a causal antecdent to perceived usefulness, as opposed to a parallel, direct determinant of system usage. Expand
On the Test-Retest Reliability of Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use Scales
TLDR
Adams, et al. (1992) replicated the work of Davis (1989) on the test-retest reliability of the perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use scales and found both scales to have the same validity and reliability characteristics as the study. Expand

TLDR
Two studies that replicate previous work by Fred Davis on the subject of perceived usefulness, ease of use, and usage of information technology focus on evaluating the psychometric properties of the ease ofUse and usefulness scales, while examining the relationship between ease ofuse, usefulness, and system usage.

TLDR
The results indicate that the decomposed Theory of Planned Behavior provides a fuller understanding of behavioral intention by focusing on the factors that are likely to influence systems use through the application of both design and implementation strategies. Expand

TLDR
Support is found for the hypothesis that the reliability and validity stemmed not from item grouping but from the constructs of perceived usefulness and perceived ease-of-use being clearly defined, and the items used to measure each of these constructs clearly capturing the essence of the construct.
