An increasing number of organizational employees are using computers for a variety of different job-related tasks. Therefore, viewed in the aggregate across an organization, the behavior of all employees toward computers may be considered from a general perspective. As a result, general attitudes toward computers are assuming greater importance. Nickell and Pinto (1986) developed the computer attitude scale (CAS) to measure general positive and negative attitudes toward computers. This study presents the results of multiple regression analysis, test-retest analysis, reliability analysis, exploratory factor analysis, and confirmatory factor analysis of the CAS in order to assess the instrument's predictive ability, construct validity, and reliability. The findings indicate that the CAS demonstrates acceptable construct validity, reliability, and stability over time, as well as the ability to predict computer usage.
