Computer systems cannot improve organizational performance if they aren't used. Unfortunately, resistance to end-user systems by managers and professionals is a widespread problem. To better predict, explain, and increase user acceptance, we need to better understand why people accept or reject computers. This research addresses the ability to predict peoples' computer acceptance from a measure of their intentions, and the ability to explain their intentions in terms of their attitudes…

Empirical evaluation of the revised technology acceptance model
TLDR
A confirmatory, empirical test of the revised Technology Acceptance Model TAM confirmed that the TAM is a valuable tool for predicting intentions to use an IS and introduced and objective measure of technology acceptance, actual usage rather than self-report usage, which supports that self- report usage may not be an appropriate surrogate measure for actual usage.
A Model of the Antecedents of Perceived Ease of Use: Development and Test†
TLDR
Data from three experiments supported the hypothesis that an individual's perception of a particular system's ease of use is anchored to her or his general computer self-efficacy at all times, and objective usability has an impact on ease-of- use perceptions about a specific system only after direct experience with the system.
System Characteristics , User Perceptions and Attitudes in the Prediction of Information Technology Acceptance : A Structural Equation Model
Recently, researchers in IS have begun to rely on the theories of innovation diffusion to study implementation problems. A major focus of these studies has been how potential users’ perceptions of
Computer self-efficacy and outcome expectancy: the effects on the end-user's job satisfaction
Information technology has expanded into the realm of almost every organizational environment. The past 30 years have witnessed an emphasis on the technological attributes of these systems, often
Examining the Effects of Computer Self-Efficacy and System Complexity on Technology Acceptance
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.

TLDR
The results of the study showed that, even though perceived near-term usefulness had the most significant influence on the behavioral intention to use a technology, perceived long- term usefulness also exerted a positive, though lesser, impact.
The Influence of Framing Effects on Perceived Ease of Use, Perceived Usefulness, and Behavioral Intention in Information Technology Systems
Abstract : Every year the Department of Defense spends millions of dollars on the purchase of new computer equipment. There is some question as to the necessity of the amount of this spending. This
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.

This study investigates organizational factors related to user involvement in information system development and perceived system usefulness. Using a sample of 118 usermanagers in 34 companies, the
Alternative Measures of Systems Effectiveness: Associations and Implications
TLDR
The relationship between user perceived effectiveness measures (user satisfaction) and behavioral measures of system effectiveness (system use) is examined and the effect of system sophistication on MIS effectiveness is examined.
An empirical study of the impact of user involvement on system usage and information satisfaction
TLDR
The results demonstrate that user involvement in the development of information systems will enhance both system usage and the user's satisfaction with the system.

Usage Patterns and Sources of Assistance for Personal Computer Users
TLDR
It was found that PCs attract new computer users and the extent of PC usage was correlated with prior computer knowledge, and users were satisfied with their PCs, but not with the information they obtained from the written sources.

TLDR
The results strongly suggest that users who hold realistic expectations prior to implementation are more satisfied with the system and use it more than users whose pre-implementation expectations are unrealistic.
