Abstract

In this paper, we analyzed students’ behavioral intention to use online discussion site (ODS) using existing measurement. As this online discussion site is widely used in education for student-student and student-lecturer interaction, we need to understand how this site is accepted by the students. This study proposes a statistical method for understanding student responses toward intention to use ODS. We analyze the intention to use ODS by using existing seven indicators: online course design, user interface design, previous learning experience, perceived usefulness, perceived ease of use perceived interaction and intention to use. All the 23 validated items from the seven indicators were combined into a single construct to measure intention to use by using Rasch analysis. The student’s intention to use online discussion available in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) e-learning portal was investigated. The responses received was investigated using Rasch analysis. The analysis displayed visually all the 23 item through person-item distribution map (PIDM) with WINSTEP 3.68.2 software. This reveals the likelihood of student intention to use ODS. Using the PIDM we can easily identify most and least agreed items in a measurement model. Thus this analysis can be applied in any study to identify the items that need further improvement based on user’s actual responses.
