Abstract

Task technology fit (TTF) has received academic attention as a user evaluation construct, which in turn has been widely used as a measure of information systems success. One of the key concerns in the TTF literature has been the proper conceptualization and measurement of fit. However, some TTF constructs still do not seem to measure fit, and others that do measure fit are not organized in any kind of way that can promote a deeper understanding of task technology fit. To address this problem, existing TTF constructs are re-evaluated, and an alternative task technology fit model is developed. This research in progress paper proposes content characteristics as a new determinant of fit, and introduces three new dimensions of fit: task match, ease of use, and ease of learning.
