AIS Transactions on Human-Computer Interaction


We examine the connection between technology components, student motivation, and engagement with Web-based assessment platforms. Technology components include feedback, functionality, and response. We built a research model on the motivational technology model as the overarching theory for our investigation. We collected data from 313 undergraduate business students from one Midwestern American institution and analyzed it using CB-SEM. The findings indicate that technology-related factors influence individuals’ motivation (namely, competence and autonomy), which, in turn, impacts engagement. We discuss the results and their implications for research and practice. Additionally, we address the limitations and identify future research opportunities.
