Abstract

Author(s): H羹lya BAKIRTA?, Cemil AKKA?

In this study, the researchers examined the relationship among factors of technological readiness, departments and class levels of undergraduate student. Technology reading index scale was adapted from Parasuraman (2000). This study was based on empirical investigation of 891 undergraduate students of Faculty of Economics and Administrative Sciences and Engineering of Aksaray University in Turkey. Chi-square analysis, independent sample t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA) procedures were used to test the hypotheses. Findings of the study indicated that there was a significant difference in the scores between two undergraduate student groups (computers weighted departments vs. not computers weighted departments) for DIS and INS. Similarly, there was a significant difference in the scores in terms of gender for only the two factors. There was female scoring higher than male scoring. The subscales of technology reading index were different according to student’s departments and class levels. The study was discussed implications of the findings and directions for future research.
