Validity and reliability of a survey to know the technological acceptance of an institutional repository: The case of resources on energy and sustainability uri icon


  • © 2018 ACMThe purpose of this paper is to present the validity and reliability of a survey designed for technological acceptance of the Institutional Repository RITEC of Tecnologico de Monterrey with resources on energy and sustainability. The research question to be answered is: how does the user experience influence the success or failure of the acceptance of an Institutional Repository? The survey consists of four points in the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM): perceived utility (PU), perceived ease of use (EU), attitudes towards use (ATU) and intention to use (BIU). The pilot survey was applied to 47 students enrolled in the virtual course ¿Visibility of open knowledge through the RITEC¿. The results obtained from the reliability analysis, using Cronbach's alpha index, indicate the high internal consistency of the survey. The validity of the survey focuses on the content validity, valued by a group of experts.
