In recent years, the combination of rapid development in mobile technology and the pandemic scenario in which the world is still in have caused an increasing demand for online systems that can replace traditional methods in various areas. For instance, the rising usage of e-learning and e-health are evidence of this reality. Consequently, Mobile Based Teaching Assessment (MBTA) has become the ideal candidate to replace traditional classroom evaluation. The intention of end-users to use MBTA as an alternative to traditional evaluation is regularly the main indicator of its adoption.
This study has two main goals; the first one is to use the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) to evaluate people’s feelings toward MBTA usage. The second goal is to propose an extended TAM that incorporates intrinsic motivation into the traditionally extrinsic regular TAM. Partially least squares (PLS) were used in this study, and data were gathered from 75 students and academic support personnel using a simple sampling technique and a structural model to evaluate the proposed model. Based on the findings of this research, the attitude of individuals
directly influences their desire to use MBTA. An individual’s attitude is influenced by various factors; this is more evident in the extended TAM proposed. Despite the indications achieved with TAM regarding the implementation of mobile-based teaching assessment in an academic context, the claimed user attitude explains 75% of the variance in user intention towards MBTA. The importance of the suggested paradigm and the accuracy of the extended TAM proposed are shown in the results of this work.
