Faculty Acceptance of the Peer Assessment Collaboration Evaluation Tool: A Quantitative Study
Podsiad, Megan; Havard, Byron
Educational Technology Research and Development, v68 n3 p1381-1407 Jun 2020
The problem this study sought to address was faculty reluctance to use new online peer-assessment tools. The purpose of this study was to examine the motivational factors that influence the acceptance of the Peer Assessment Collaboration Evaluation (PACE) Tool among faculty employed at a mid-sized university in the Southeastern United States. This study used Davis's (1986) technology acceptance model (TAM) and motivational constructs "attitude toward using, perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use" (p. 44). The researcher used simple linear regression and standard multiple regression to determine if there was a significant relationship, if any, between the motivational constructs. The results of the linear regressions denoted positive, significant relationships between perceived ease of use of the PACE Tool and attitude toward using the PACE Tool, perceived usefulness of the PACE Tool and attitude toward using the PACE Tool; and perceived ease of use of the PACE Tool and perceived usefulness of the PACE Tool. The results of the multiple regression indicated that both perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of the PACE Tool were positively, significantly related to attitude toward using the PACE Tool. Through faculty members' speculations, the researcher was able to measure their motivation to use the PACE Tool. The results of this study demonstrated faculty members are motivated to use the PACE Tool, which indicates high acceptability and potential usage in the future. By understanding how faculty members perceive the PACE Tool, designers may be able to develop online peer-assessment tools that are more acceptable.
