  • AMCIS – Analysis of User Acceptance for Web Based Aptitude Tests with DART
    , 2020
    Co-Authors: Michael Amberg, Sonja Fischer, Manuela Schroeder

    Abstract:

    Web-based Aptitude Tests, which are a special category of Aptitude Tests, can be used for rather standardized test methods and for a large amount of users. The characteristics of web-based Aptitude Tests can have an impact on the result of the test. The aim of our research is to develop a method for the evaluation of the user acceptance for web-based Aptitude Tests. Negative influences when using a Human Computer Interface should be identified and minimized. After an analysis of existing acceptance models, the DART-approach is chosen as a basis for the adoption to web-based Aptitude Tests. Due to literature research and expert discussion, we identified twelve aggregated acceptance indicators. The use of the DART-approach helps to define a balanced set of measurable acceptance indicators for the evaluation of the user acceptance.

  • evaluation of user acceptance for web based Aptitude Tests
    Communications of the IIMA, 2006
    Co-Authors: Michael Amberg, Sonja Fischer, Manuela Schroder

    Abstract:

    Web-based Aptitude Tests, which are a special category of Aptitude Tests, can be used for rather standardized test methods and for a large amount of users. The characteristics of web-based Aptitude Tests can have an impact on the test results and the user acceptance. The aim of our research is to develop a method for the evaluation of the user acceptance for web-based Aptitude Tests. Therefore, we used the DART-approach with the dimension (Perceived) Usefulness, (Perceived) Ease of Use, (Perceived) Network Effects and (Perceived) Costs as the theoretical basis, identified important acceptance indicators, developed a questionnaire and conducted a survey. Afterwards, we proved the reliability and conducted a factor analysis. The results point out that some of the defined acceptance indicators should be revised. Additionally, the factor analysis shows that a combination of two dimensions (Perceived) Usefulness and (Perceived) Network Effects is useful especially with regard to web-based Aptitude Tests. Finally, we conducted a univariate analysis to evaluate the user acceptance of a web-based Aptitude test. The visualised result on the basis of a DART-chart clearly shows that the interviewees evaluated the indicators very differently. There are fields, where the Aptitude test fulfils the expectations, and fields, which can be improved.

  • web based Aptitude Tests at universities in german speaking countries
    Communications of the IIMA, 2005
    Co-Authors: Michael Amberg, Sonja Fischer, Manuela Schroder

    Abstract:

    Universities can select their students more and more independently. In order to support the selection process, web-based Aptitude Tests are a possibility to balance benefits und efforts of this task. Within this paper, we will point out how current web-based Aptitude Tests are designed, what competences are covered, and which methods for development are used. For this purpose, we developed a classification how web-based Aptitude Tests are implemented. Furthermore, competences as the basis of web-based Aptitude Tests are appraised. Four competence categories (professional, methodological, personal, and social competences) are selected as the most appropriate pattern. Thereafter, we analyse methods for developing competence specifications. Finally, we state lessons learned for the development of web-based Aptitude Tests at universities. These results are an important preparatory work and a basis for a systematically development of a web-based Aptitude test for the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.
