Abstract

This paper examines the user acceptance of the ‘CASFiT’, a new school-based e-assessment system for evaluating students’ performance in Information Communication Technology (ICT) SPM that give feedback on assessment items.The initial impetus for its development was the need to follows the development and changes in technologies.The system has been prototype over the past 6 months in five states Kedah, Penang, Selangor, Johor and Kelantan and a form of acceptance is needed before expanding the system to secondary schools in all states which offers this elective subject.Theories of information technology acceptance are discussed and four models of information technology acceptance (Theory of Reasoned Action, Innovation Diffusion Theory, Technology Acceptance Model and Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology) are compared. Based on these discussions, a paper model is proposed to measure the acceptance level of the current CASFiT users.Questionnaires aimed at the assessment of users’ perceived usefulness and ease of use of information technology, were utilized.A survey was conducted with a sample of 92 users (ICT teachers and students) from five states (Kedah, Penang, Selangor, Johor and Kelantan).The analysis carried out to foresee the user acceptance of CASFiT, in which shows that the system is accepted by its users and by accepting CASFiT; they are willing to use it as measuring tools.Test result also shows that gender, age group, and computer experience had no significant influence on users’ perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use of CASFiT. Correlation results show that both perceived usefulness and ease of use constructs directly influence user acceptance of CASFiT. Thus, it is possible to assume that CASFIT can be successfully expanded to all secondary schools through out Malaysia.
