Research on IT adoption has shown that object-based beliefs about IT systems have a profound impact on subsequent IT usage. However, we still need to identify antecedents of object-based beliefs in order to understand how the belief formation process can be influenced. This research builds upon and extends Adaptive Structuration Theory to examine how IT-related factors influence the formation of object-based beliefs. To test our research model, we surveyed 183 users of a student information system. The proposed model was supported, providing evidence that values, meaning and functionalities provided by an IT system positively affect information and system quality.
