A study was conducted to evaluate self-appraised predicted software use with actual use. Several students enrolled in an introductory computing class were surveyed for their initial (usefulness and ease of use) perceptions of Lotus 1-2-3 for Windows, and later for their appraisals of current and future use. The Davis (8) twelve-item instrument was used. Regression models were constructed to examine the relationships between perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, and perceived use, between perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, and actual use, and between perceived usefulness and perceived ease of use, and change to perceived use. The results suggest that in addition to predicting future use the Davis (8) instrument can predict expected changes to predicted use.
