Abstract

Improving the quality of education continuously and sustainably is the task of the whole communities, but in particular the government can take over the policy on the important components by providing the best support and contribution in order to improve the quality of education and achieve the expected Information and Communication Technology (ICT) adoption goals. This study conducts user acceptance test of ICT adoption framework in schools to ensure actual system use. In this context, school is a potential user of the framework to be assessed for its acceptance of the framework by exploring acceptance characteristics such as performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence and facilitating conditions which mapped into perceived usefulness and perceived ease-of-use. This test also has a behavior analysis part by using Technology Acceptance Model (TAM) and Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) combination. This test is a research final phase in small scale representative sampling in order to strengthen future implementation plans. Involving about 60 schools to use the framework in the context of the preparation of adoption ICT in school. The result shows that average school responses revealed that the school administrators' lack of understanding identified needs and linked them to the intended objectives. It concludes that framework can be accepted with some suggestions.
