We, at the Design Innovation Centre of Mondragon University, are working to better understand the interaction between humans and robots through a user-focused questionnaire. Our Human-Robot Experience (HUROX) questionnaire will gauge human perception and acceptance of robots in an industrial setting. Your participation in completing the questionnaire will greatly help us validate our findings.
Please, answer the electronic questionnaire that can be accessed here: https://questionpro.com/t/AWzTgZwkBl
The estimated time to answer all questions is about 40 minutes.
Your cooperation and support in this research effort would be greatly appreciated. We believe that by working together, we can advance our understanding of human-robot interaction and create better, more intuitive technologies for the future. If you're willing, please share this message with your network of contacts to help us reach even more participants.
Thank you for your cooperation!
I will do research on how nursing students experience the use of a Virtual medicineroom, and i have looked into UTAUT2. I will do a post - test survey using a questionnaire.
The students have not tried VR before, and are in theire second year of education.
I see that there are parts of the UTAUT2 that are not relevant. These are Social influence, facilitating conditions, price value and habit. These would give little meaning to the nursing students that will try the virtual medicineroom for the first time, and i think it would be confusing.
I want to use a validated model/questionnaire like UTAUT2, so i wonder if any of you have any experience in using a adjusted version of the UTAUT2, like i plan to? Is this ok to do?
I want to at least cover percieved usefullness, perceived ease of use, and hedonic factors. I like the TAM - model, but it doesnt have perceived enjoyment, so therefor i think i will use UTAUT2.
In our study we with a Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) we want to use Usability at the place of Perceived Ease Of Use (PEOU).
- PEOU is defined as the degree to which individuals perceive how easy it is to use technology (Davis et al. 1989)
- Usability is defined as "The extent to which a product can be used by specified users to achieve specified goals with effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction in a specified context of use" (Jokela et al. 2003:11).
I would argue that usability is equivalent to PEOU, where PEOU has an explicitly subjective character (perception) and usability is somewhat broader and more objectively conceptualised (with its own subjecitve component in questions of surveys or interviews).
In my research that focusing on technology acceptance of tourists I am looking for the effect of culture in tourist acceptance.
The model is proposed UTAUT and my plan is to hold a survey among two clusters one for domestic tourists and the other one for international tourists among 5 main countries for tourist arrival.
Do I consider nationality or culture in my study?
I am conducting a study using the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) but I have some difficulties in running the analysis since I need one dependent variable but in my questionnaire, the dependent variable (Actual Use) has 4 items.
So how do I convert these 4 items as 1 dependent variable.
The popularity and applications of the metaverse are expected to skyrocket in the near future, thanks to the entry of major players (Facebook, Microsoft, EA, and even McDonalds) in the industry. As ab opinion piece in The Drum puts it "many experts predict that the metaverse will change the way we live and work in the future, and it would be extremely negligent not to recognize the trend and continue to engage with it". Could someone suggest some preliminary studies that could be carried out using consumer data collected through online surveys? Thanks in advance.
I am very interested in new technologies, especially VR and AR.
Is there any model which can be used to measure the attitude towards new technologies?
I read about TAM, UTAUT, and the technology readiness model but I am curious to know if there is a model or tool that can help with getting people's tendency to use new technology that they have not used before. or to predict their attitude toward a new technology that has just been announced.
I feel that I miss something, can you help in clarifying the how-to or the options I have with such interest?
Presently I am starting the venture of writing my master's thesis. The subject of my thesis concerns the implementation of robotic process automation (RPA) software in organisations. I'd like to look at critical success factors in different stages of the implementation process. To ultimately deliver a scientifically grounded and validated framework on how to conduct successful RPA implementation projects. To do so, I will be conducting qualitative research.
However I could use some help with it from our community as I am presently struggling with finding an appropriate theoretical lens to apply in my thesis.
Therefore I am looking for suggestions for possible lenses to use which can be used in qualitative research. I have come across theories such as diffusion-of-innovation (DOI), technology acceptance model (TAM) and unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT). These however have a quantitative nature and thereby seem less appropriate.
To summarize, I am looking for a theoretical lens to study RPA implementation projects which can be used in qualitative research, do you have any suggestions on which lens to use? It may also be more broad or sociological lenses rather than strictly technological lenses.
Please let me know, your help and advice is highly appreciated!
When drawing a structural model, I am highly dissatisfied with the final significance values. I obtain only one significant predictor for my dependent variable. If I remove the covariates of the exogenous constructs, against the recommendation of AMOS, the results are far more realistic.
All in all, I receive satisfactory item loadings. Even those that did not load above the threshold of 0.7 are significant and in theory should not pose an issue.
In reviewing more and more scientific articles and papers, I have the impression that in structural models, covariation of exogenous constructs is not always conducted.
Am I assuming right? I need your suggestion on which approach to take.
//In the measurement model all constructs are covaried, N=286,
A link to assess the pdf version or the pdf itself would be much appreciated.
I am currently doing my path analysis as part of the structural equation modelling for a well known theory called the technology acceptance model (TAM). As per the picture attached, I have found no Statistical significance between the direct path between perceived usefulness and attitude.
My goodness of fit indices are all showing a strong close fit (RMSEA is 0.5 and CFI bigger that .95 etc…). After checking the indirect effect (mediation effect) I have found that perceived usefulness is a mediator between the external variable and attitude.
My question is, can this be applicable? can this variable be a mediator even if during the direct path was not significant to the independent variable ? Hope someone has the answer for this. Thank you so much in advance.
I'm studying augmented reality as a tool on ship bridges for maritime operations. One variable I want to study is the perceived risk of introducing this technology in the work of ship bridge operators. What I want to know is whether operators think the new technology (AR) might increase the risk of certain problems in maritime operations. I looked around a bit but haven't found a satisfactory questionnaire for this. The Technology Acceptance Model Questionnaire and the System Usability Scale focus too much on usability. The Perceived Risks Questionnaire (Jacoby & Kaplan, 1972) is aimed at private customers.
Could you suggest standardized questionnaires I can use to study the perceived risk of introducing this new technology?
Thanks in advance,
The contribution to the IT field is not very clear. Probably need to focus the discussion on the tools/ systems used for Blended Learning. , The findings need to be linked to Blended learning and the IT components. thank you
We seeking to measure the access and utilization of high performance computing systems within small businesses. I would appreciate any scales related to this.
I am working on an article on Single-Sign On. I would like to find at least 200 participants for the study. I am using Technology Acceptance Model and will be sending a survey. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi, I am a student from the Bocconi University, I have decided to write an Emphirical Thesis on smartwatch. I am interested in actual smartwatch users, but I have a very unsolvable doubt: can the Technology Acceptance Model be applied to actual users of any technology or the sample population must include also potential users (i.e also people that currently do not own or use a smarwatch)?
In the actual definition of the TAM said that "technology acceptance model (TAM) is an information systems theory that models how users come to accept and use a technology" but I have not yet found a research applying the TAM on an actual users, even if the definition stated that can be used for asses the use of the technology.
Hi colleague researchers!
I've been preparing research on Digital twin and machine learning adoption at retail/wholesale companies. But it appears that ML is applicable in a limited number of operations, in reality. Such as demand forecasting in category management. In your experience what is the situation in the industry?
Geography of my data source is Central Asia and Former Soviet Union countries.
I am also open for joint research in this field.
Dear Academics and colleagues,
It has been always an ongoing development on improving the technology Acceptance Models. One of the fresh models is UTAUT 2. However, I have seen many researchers who are still uses the old models like TAM and UTAUT 1. The question is, why should we use the old produced models since the new ones are available? Any suggestions
Hi all! Need advice on research design. I did mixed methods study (2 research methods). Both methods with a relatively small sample. But I want to note in the discussion that the conclusion about the confirmation of the hypothesis tentative (that this is an assumption, a pilot study) and submit it to the Q2 journal. Do you think it makes sense? Or in the current situation, it is better not to dream and send it to my University’s internal journal?
In my research, I am making an extension to an existing TAM (predicts whether users will accept technology). Testing my extended model did via:
1. Expert interviews (16 experts)
2. Observation - observation of system operation in production and interaction with users in one organization (6 months)
For my thesis I plan to extend or adjust a technology acceptance model concerning smarthealth technologies (consumer oriented like smartwatches and such).
I want to test if covid-19 has effects on perceived usefulness, motivation, ... for the use of these technologies. So I'm looking for validated constructs regarding health concerns (?)
Not really sure, please put me in the right direction
In our previous research, we have identified important constructs for a University-Industry Collaborative IT support system. Now we need to test the user acceptance of such a system before implementing it. Planned to use TAM integrated with DIT but the doubt is whether these two theories are applicable for a system that is not in use. My plan is to explain the system features in a prototype system and distribute them with the questionnaire. Could you please advise if you have experience with other IS theories that are more suitable for the scenario?.
I am confused about my final Masters thesis research area. I have two interests.
1. Cross-cultural design
2. Technology Acceptance
Kindly address the future scope of the two and suggest the better out of the two.
I'm doing research, which requires me to use the TAM method instead of the UTAUT method. But I have a problem, because of the several references that I have met. I found that the UTAUT method is better than TAM.
Please, include a related journal that describing the conditions where TAM is better.
I have data collected by using a questionnaire based on the Technology Acceptance Model. However, my sample is small due to domain restrictions. Only 40 individuals are surveyed.
Can I analyze this data with PLS?
If not, there is another tool or technique to use in this case?
It will be highly appreciated if someone will share literature relevant to it, or even any relevant videos.
Suppose that you're developing a technology acceptance model (TAM) in a case. Could you tell me about the effects and advantages of including "Several Independent Variables" into the TAM?
I will try to articulate my confusion as best as I can.
1) In my current study which investigates consumers' acceptance of a mobile payment system, I am using (and extending) TAM.
2) Many studies which use TAM with its constructs e.g. perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, have actual or existing users as their sample population.
3) If I were to investigate non-users (because adoption is yet to be widespread), would this model still hold? I mean, how can a non-user answer questions related to "perceived ease of use" when he/she has never experienced/used the technology before?
Although arguably this is merely perception...
4) When I refer to studies which use TAM and have non technology users as their sample population, they often include an explanatory video to demonstrate the use of the technology before having their respondents to answer the questionnaire. So is this the same measure that I should take?
I am at the stage of having my questionnaire reviewed by experts for content validation and I end up with this question marks following several discussions.
Can someone advise me accordingly?
What model do you recommend for the Acceptance of Hospital Intelligence Management System (HIMS) Technology? (Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), Extension of TAM (ETAM), Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT)) and etc?
I'm curious about the possbile technologies which can be investigated by using the UTAUT-model in the future.
Which technologies do you recommend?
Hi everyone, I'm running a logistic regression model with 5 independent variables (constructs) and 1 dichotomous dependent variable (yes/no). When I run the logit model, both the omnibus and lemeshow test support my model. However I get a high nagelkerke R2 value (.605) even though only one of the 5 constructs shows to be a significant predictor in this model...
Should I be worried about it? My tutor says that it's a bit fishy and that maybe something is worng with my model. He says he usually gets much lower R2 values even with more significant variables...But I have already checked for multicollinearity in my variables and everything seems to be fine (tolerance <.1 and VIF >10), I also checked the Durbin-Watson test and the value is between 1 and 3, so this assumption seems to be fine too...
Could you please give me a hand, it is for my thesis, Thank you very much.
Affective technologies are the interfaces concerning the emotional artificial intelligence branch known as affective computing (Picard, 1997). Applications such as facial emotion recognition technologies, wearables that can measure your emotional and internal states, social robots interacting with the user by extracting and perhaps generating emotions, voice assistants that can detect your emotional states through modalities such as voice pitch and frequency and so on...
Since these technologies are relatively invasive to our private sphere (feelings), I am trying to find influencing factors that might enhance user acceptance of these types of technologies in everyday life (I am measuring the effects with the TAM). Factors such as trust and privacy might be very obvious, but moderating factors such as gender and age are also very interesting. Furthermore, I need relevant literature which I can ground my work on since I am writing a literature review on this topic.
I am thankful for any kind of help!
I'm looking at researching the effects of COVID-19 on digitalization of the economy, using technology acceptance theories on new digital tools. I am still in the designing process of my research but looking to get some insights or ideas on new technologies or digital practices used by companies and/or the public sector, to then develop a questionnaire or interview questions. Thank you
Hello all, I am writing my thesis about what influences user acceptance on current end-users of a system that has been introduced recently. Initially, I was thinking of using TAM, but assuming that this model only study users that has not experience using the new system yet.
Therefore, would it be a right approach to use the UTAUT model for this study?
The system (Transportation Management System or TMS) is provided by the company for internal operators (end-users in this study). Recently the company implemented another newer version of the TMS.
Thanks in advance.
I am doing a research on new technologies and I would like to know how to determine the percentage of people that intend to use a new technology.
I know about models like TAM, UTAUT, UTAUT2 and their extension however I think that those models are more designed to be able to explain the intention to use and not determine it.
Are there any standards or surveys or models that I can use to detect that percentage?
I would like to know how to analyse the results I get from a UTAUT2 survey. I did not modify the model (used the original one by Venkatesh et al. 2012) with the same survey questions, but on another technology.
My priority is to detect how much people are intending to use this technology.
Validating the model comes after.
I can learn the math behind it if someone minds explaining as well.
How would you use TAM (Technology Acceptance Model) to measure the adoption prospects of VR in tourism industry?
I am little confuse to differentiate among 'Perceived Ease of Use', 'Perceived Usefulness' and ' Intention of Use' in Technology Acceptance Model (TAM). Can anyone help me with some example!
First what is difference b/w these two? Second anyone can describe the usage of these two models?
I am currently researching the potential of virtual reality to strengthen a brand and to build customer loyalty. Does anyone have experience in this area or knows of a study which I could use?
Thanks a lot in advance,
I want to understand how social media was accepted by an organisation regarding the "classical" TAM model (Davis, 1989) in qualitative way. I understood from the literature review that most studies used TAM were conducted in the quantitative paradigm.
However, because my sample size is small a quantitative approach is not an appropriate choice. Instead I have in mind to conduct focus groups with a topic guide related to the original TAM questions (Davis, 1989).

I need permission to utilize the TAM diagram in my capstone project for my DNP. How do I get permission?
I am looking for a questionaire to measure the user acceptance of artificial intelligence. Is there already a verified model for the acceptance of AI (except models for technology acceptance in general, like the TAM)? I want to explore what factors are influencing the acceptance of users of AI. Thank you for help.
I am starting to write my Master Thesis and I would like to have some advices on how to assess the acceptance on conversational commerce (beyond TAM are there other models/tools I could use?).
The objective is analyse acceptability and come out with few managerial advices for companies willing to use this new way of communication/sales.
Thank you very much.
Do you know papers targeting this research objective: assocations between perceived stress and attitudes toward eHealth/eMental Health/online self-help (or stress and acceptance of eHealth treatments). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
Kind regards, Jennifer
I have observed that many researchers who are associated with the field of computer science. But they are working on Technological Acceptance Model (TAM). If you search in libraries, most of theses of computer related scholars are on the subjects related to Social Applications of Technology. Why majority of (self-claimed) Computer Scientists avoid working on technical subjects related to their field????
Very briefly my study is examining “the role of perceived humanness towards the acceptance of AI powered customer care contact centres” using (Technology Acceptance model , Davis 1986) my question to you, can I design a survey asking the sample about a technology that they might never actually used?
I usually come across “experiments” to address similar question, but in my case I do not have my hands on the technology itself, so can surveys be a replacement?
My main aim here is to understand the possible key success factor of such technology to be introduced.
From the outcome of my survey, I am required to group the respondents based on the Diffusion of Innovation theory, which will place my respondents into different categories.
I am not sure how to achieve this. Currently I am at the early stage of conducting my research.
Would appreciate if anyone can shed light on this.
We are going to implement a clinical desicion support system (CDSS) for drug-drug-interactions (DDIs) for ICU physicians. We want te measure whether the implementation of this system was successfull from end-user perspective (qualitative study). So preferably we want to compare before and after situation by exmaple by conducting a survey. Use of this system is mandatory.
I have studied different theoretical models such as UTAUT, TAM, and DeLone and McLean IS Succes model. Which one fits my goals the best or should I use a mix of these model as a starting point for my survey. If so, please explain why. If there are other models I should use, I'm very much like to hear about it. In my understending UTAUT and TAM are not applicable in a situation a system is mandatory.
For my master Thesis I use TAM (Davis, 1989). My instrument is a survey (n=201). Now, I have +/- 4 statements that measure an item (got proposed six items in advance). After conducting a factor analysis, I have this output (see my file). I have a hard time with intrepreting the results...
1. can I JUST take the average of these scores (as in my docu: frederique_questions)? or is there an other way so I can use this? Almost al the theses / studies online stop after this part.... :
FOR EXAMPLE: For factor 1 (which will be ease of use) can I just take the average of the four factors EOU that measure this? And just LEAVE PS1 out (although still has a high score).
2. Still need to run a cronbach alpha for al the " final " items?
Help me pls!
I am trying to find literature/studies about qualitative examination of TAM-Factors. So far I've found a ton of quantitative surveys but my approach wants to focus instead on qualitative in-depth-interviews. Specifically I want to find out if different cultural backgrounds influence the perception of the same mobile appilcation in a different way.
It seems as if qualitative surveys in this area are quite rare so my second question would be if there is a valid way to bundle the quantitative questions in some qualitative ones?
I am interested in doing research for young people who face university virtual courses for the first time
I am conducting an empiric study analysing the effects of VR exposure on the purchasing decision process of travellers. For setting up a research model I just wonder whether anyone know some research on the relationship between telepresence and technology acceptance?
I will be happy to share my results in a few weeks!
1.Can anyone help me with recommending me a good literature on strategic decision making and how does the latter differ from other decision making processes? In my masters thesis I am using a model of Mintzberg, Henry in Duru Rainsinghani in Andre Theoret. 1976. The structure of "unstructured" decision process. I am using the latter model as basics, but I have to "break it down" to the basics, which is, WHAT IS strategic decision making and WHAT MAKES IT DIFFER from other decision making processes.
2. Would you say that strategic decision making process is rational? Or those two terms are completely different from eachother?
Thanks in advance for all of your comments!
We are currently investigating user habits in regards to online dating applications, especially focusing on target groups, decision making, goal orientation, as well as the user information (picture, description) a decision is based on. Also the dating mechanics are of interest.
Is anyone doing research in the same area?
For measuring UX, I have used Revised HED-UT scale by Heijden et al. It has 9 items for utility construct : useful, practical, necessary, functional, helpful, efficient, effective,beneficial and productive (with negative polarities on the other end). As utility is supposed to measure both usability and usefulness, is there a way I can separate usefulness from usability? Is it safe to assume that useful, practical, necessary, helpful, beneficial are measures for usefulness and functional, efficient, effective, productive are measures for usability?
I am just afraid using this method of distinguishing between usability and usefulness metrics as people might have different interpretations for different items. So I might consider an item as a measure of usability construct. But, someone else might consider that item as a subset of usefulness construct.
I did SEM for my TAM model and found high cross loadings between PU and BI indicators. However, factor loadings on respective constructs are higher than cross loadings and Fornell-Larker criterion is OK.
What should I do?
I am interested in studying spatial learning in school-age children using eye-tracking methods, have a non-infinite budget, and am aware that there are many devices presently on the market now. Can someone with experience point me to a more recent review of literature than Lai, Tsai, Yang et al 2013? Also any information regarding specific products would be appreciated.
Looking for advise on doing mixed method research following a quantitative phase on technology acceptance model, looking at expanding on the perceived usefulness black box through focus group. Any suggestions?
TAM is on intervention of using Google calendar to determine its effect on executive function.
I want to test some efficiency of the web-based system. Some tasks would determine the result of the evaluation in post-test design.
I would also want to evaluate the system using TAM but not by survey (in post-test only design).
The web-based which I want to evaluate is attached below:
There are several theories based on personal Behavior or Social behaviour. Theories like technology Acceptance Model is an example. What would be a good theoretical model to consider for developing a research design with constructs to research on the influence of social media on consumer decision making?
Specifically I would like to ask which software is better in testing hypothesis specially for technology acceptance model (TAM)?
I’m working on the study titled “Factors Influencing Adopters' Trust in Cloud Computing Services in organizations”
Which appropriate adoption model must use in this study TAM, TOE, or UTAUT.
The responses of this study contain from the decision makers in the organizations and IT staff.
What is appropriate adoption model must use in this study?
what is the relationship between technology acceptance and better compliance management pertinent to OSA patients?
Small and Medium Sized organizations do not fully embrace information technology (IT) because of many reasons hence they adopt certain level of IT. The degree of organization's adaptability may have some relationship or impact on such level of adaptability. How can we measure it? Any particular references, please?
I am reading Predicting e-services adoption: a perceived
risk facets perspective by Mauricio S. Feathermana & Paul A. Pavloub in Int. J. Human-Computer Studies 59 (2003) 451–474.
I am wondering if Perceived Risk in this study could be a multidimensional construct (reflective indicators, formative dimensions).
I am not sure how it is conceptualised in this study because there is no measurement model in the study.
If it is a multidimensional formative construct, can we use AMOS?
I am a novice master student studying Technology Acceptance Study for my degree and one of the construct I am trying to conceptualised is "perceived professional risk" for medical students when they use social media.
Dear friends and scholars,
I am looking for references and articles which have used TPB framework in the field of technology acceptance. In addition, if you know references for relative survey please attach or introduce them.
With the warm regards,
Most of the technology acceptance studies adapt measurement items from previous validated questionnaires. How shall I develop a measurement for a latent construct which has almost never been studied using Technology Acceptance Model.
It is "professionalism concern on the use of social media network".
Like website, ERP, Mobile apps are three different types of Information technology, if we are going to check the usability of ERP. ERP is a software which is mandatory to use by users(employees). As a result, frequency of usage is higher which might lead to better usability. In case of a website , usage could be optional by users. Same about eCommerce or eBanking software. Do you think in both of the cases, same method of Usability should be followed? Is there any term or theory available to differentiate Information technology based on use?
Some articles use the two words (technology acceptance and adoption) interchangeably. However it seems that they do not refer to exactly the same idea. Can someone share me the difference and/or the relationship between technology/innovation adoption and acceptance? I appreciate if you recommend me articles in this topic.
In my research, of AR technology acceptance, I do not have the exact device and its application. How can I collect data via questionnaire with similar app and devices?
I have suggested the proposed model of the UTAUT( the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology) by Venkatesh et al. (2012) in my reserach proposal of tourist acceptance of new technology. As the UTAUT and UTAUT2 have reviewed 8 dominant models and came to specific framework by Venkatesh I need strong evidence of the beneficial aspects of UTAUT model that cover my literature.
I will really appreciate whether relative references been introduced.
I am interested to understand if the perceived usefulness (PU) and perceived ease of use (PEU) were rated at a feature level and if a comparison was done against incumbent software.
I am planning a study on transparency and acceptance of a policy development process. I found the following related studies:
- I plan to base the study on the work of De Fine Licht (2014) - links attached.
- Cramer et al. (2008) measure the effects of transparency on trust in and acceptance of a content-based art recommender.
- Trust (as a related concept) has been analyzed before in Becker, Heddier, Öksüz, Knackstedt (2014) - but in an non-public setting.
- Organizational TransparencyEdit (2015-09-18): Two quantitative evaluation frameworks for organizational transparency have been proposed and tested before: Rawlins 2009: "Give the Emperor a Mirror: Toward Developing a Stakeholder Measurement of Organizational Transparency" and Dapko 2012: "Perceived Firm Transparency: Scale and Model Development"
I don't plan to include the Technology Acceptance Model, as it rather equates usage of IT as the measure for acceptance - which seems to fit badly for a policy's acceptance.
Am I missing some important study and are there any established questionnaires available?
