  • Real-time Prediction of User Performance based on Pupillary Assessment via
           Eye Tracking

    • Authors: Ricardo Buettner et al.
      Abstract: We propose a method to predict user performance based on eye-tracking. The method uses eye-tracking-based pupillometry to capture pupil diameter data and calculates—based on a Random Forest algorithm—user performance expectations. We conducted a large-scale experimental evaluation (125 participants aged from 21 to 61 years) and found promising results that pave the way for a dynamic real-time adaption of IT to a user’s mental effort and expected user performance. We have already achieved a good classification accuracy of user performance after only 40 seconds (5% of the mean total trial time that our participants took to complete our experiment). The non-invasive contact-free method can be applied cost-efficiently both in research and practical environments.

  • Antecedents and Consequents of Information Usefulness in User-generated
           Online Reviews: A Multi-group Moderation Analysis of Review Valence

    • Authors: Contantinos K. Coursaris et al.
      Abstract: Online reviews have become a critical component of consumers’ Web-based search queries and help them minimize uncertainty and risk associated with purchase decisions. Not only do customers perceive online reviews to be more “real”, but also online reviews enable opportunities for interactivity between consumers, which makes them a popular source of information when consumers make (online) purchase decisions. In this study, we examine the impact of online reviews on consumers’ beliefs, brand attitudes, and purchase intention by theoretically extending the information adoption model (IAM) with constructs from consumer research. To do so, we used data from a scenario- based online experiment and manipulated three review characteristics (currency, accuracy, and credibility) using carefully selected TripAdvisor reviews. Using a partial-least squares approach (PLS) to structural equation model (SEM), we found strong empirical support for our hypotheses that review quality and reviewer credibility drive information usefulness and that information usefulness, in turn, drives consumers’ attitudes toward and their intention to purchase from a brand. Using PLS multi-group analysis, we further explored the moderating role of review valence—positive versus negative—and found significant differences in the importance of the drivers of information usefulness and its consequents. We discuss our study’s implications for theory and practice.

  • Measuring Actual Behaviors in HCI Research – A call to Action and an

    • Authors: Parker A. Williams et al.
      Abstract: There have been repeated calls for studies in behavioral science and human-computer interaction (HCI) research to measure participants’ actual behaviors. HCI research studies often use multiple constructs as perceived measures of behavior, which are captured using participants’ self-reports on surveys. Response biases, however, are a widespread threat to the validity of self-report measures. To mitigate this threat to validity, we propose that studies in HCI measure actual behaviors in appropriate contexts rather than solely perceptions. We report an example of using movements that reflect both actual behavior and behavioral changes measured within a health care IS usage context, specifically the detection and alleviation of neuromuscular degenerative disease. We propose and test a method of monitoring mouse-cursor movements to detect hand tremors in real time when individuals are using websites. Our work suggests that analyzing hand movements as an actual (rather than perceptual) measure of usage could enrich other areas of IS research (e.g., technology acceptance, efficacy, fear, etc.), in which perceptions of states and behavior are measured post hoc to the interaction and subject to the threats of various forms of response bias.

  • From Individual Cognition to Social Ecosystem: A Structuration Model of
           Enterprise Systems Use

    • Authors: Alan Dennis et al.
      Abstract: In this paper, we argue that one can understand the adoption and routine use of enterprise systems by examining the fit between the system and the social structures of the organization. We develop a model of the adoption and long- term use of enterprise systems based on sociological concepts (Lord Anthony Giddens’ structuration theory) rather than the usual cognitive psychology concepts. We focus on the adoption and use of three versions of an enterprise KMS to support sales representatives at a multinational pharmaceutical firm. Our first study (a five-year case study of the KMS that went through one failed deployment and two successful ones) shows that the structures of signification, legitimation, and domination all influence loyal use, although domination may be less important. Our second study (a survey of 893 users at the firm) shows that the structures of signification, legitimation, and domination explain about 50 percent of the variance in ongoing loyal use but that their relative importance depends on the job experience of the users: signification and legitimation influence novices more, and signification and domination influence experts more. We believe that this parsimonious three-factor model offers a useful approach for future research and practice.

  • Information Technology Enabled Persuasion: An Experimental Investigation
           of the Role of Communication Channel, Strategy and Affect

    • Authors: Haiqing Li et al.
      Abstract: With advances in information and communication technologies (ICT), organizations of various forms now deploy an increasing number of ICT-enabled persuasive systems in several domains. Traditional computer-mediated communication (CMC) theories mainly focus on the effectiveness of media in the synchronous/asynchronous spectrum for effectively matching medium with communication task. The contemporary communication environment is rich with asynchronous channels such as email, Web, and text messaging, which makes it important to go beyond synchronicity and determine the nuances among various asynchronous channels. No rigorous research has compared the effectiveness of these channels in the persuasive systems domain where organizations use technology to persuade users to modify their behavior in a direction that they mutually agree to be desirable. In this paper, we study the effectiveness of CMC and the strategy used to frame the persuasive message. We explore persuasive strategies of praising, reminding, suggesting, and rewarding for health behavior and promotion. We model user experience as a mediator between channel strategy combinations and persuasive effectiveness. Through controlled user studies, we compared sixteen combinations of communication channel and persuasive strategy with or without emoticons. We found that channel/strategy combinations affect persuasive effectiveness (mediated by user experience) in varying degrees. Our findings contribute to the body of CMC and persuasive system knowledge and have practical implications for online advertising, health promotion, and persuasive technology design.

  • Enterprise Social Media Use and Impact on Performance: The Role of
           Workplace Integration and Positive Emotions

    • Authors: Murad Moqbel et al.
      Abstract: Organizations struggle to find ways to improve employees’ performance. To date, little research has empirically examined the relationship between enterprise social media use and knowledge workers’ performance. Using social capital theory and the broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions as our theoretical framework, we investigate the relationship between enterprise social media use and knowledge workers’ performance. We tested our research model by collecting data from employees working for a large information technology firm in the Midwestern United States and analyzing the data using a structural equation modeling approach. The results suggest that enterprise social media use can increase workplace integration, which further enhances performance directly and indirectly through positive emotions. Enterprise social media use also has a direct relationship with performance. The paper concludes with practical and theoretical implications.

  • Navigating the New Workplace: Technology, Millennials, and Accelerating HR

    • Authors: Julio C. Canedo et al.
      Abstract: This paper brings together the latest thinking in research and practice on workplace change and the information technology tools and technologies that enable, and, in some cases, drive that change. We address the shifts in global business that focus leadership on innovation, the changing demographics of employee populations, and how these changes impact talent management and emerging methods and tools that enable HR professionals to be more effective and bring new value to their business enterprises. We detail emergent scientific research on how the millennial generation has transformed the workplace. We describe effective methods, tools, and technologies from actual workplace practice to provide practical insights that one can immediately use in a human resource management context. We also present new hypotheses and recommendations for how to leverage the various change scenarios.

  • E-mentoring: A Model and Review of the Literature

    • Authors: Andrea Rae Neely et al.
      Abstract: With the growth of technology and greater use of virtual teams, organizations have increasingly begun to use e-mentoring for socializing, training, and developing individual employees via technology. Despite the growing importance of e-mentoring, relatively little research has examined its process or effectiveness. Therefore, we: 1) provide a framework for understanding the e-mentoring process, 2) review the e-mentoring literature, and 3) present hypotheses to generate additional research on e-mentoring. As technology develops, the use of e-mentoring and, thus, the need to better understand it will grow.

  • Sociomaterial Quasi-objects: From Interface to Experience

    • Authors: Lena Hylving
      Abstract: In this paper, I examine design practices by contrasting the Cartesian view of separation with an ontological perspective and argue for a dynamic, multiple, and entangled world (namely, sociomateriality). In the digital era we live in, sociomateriality helps move design practices forward in order to embrace constant changes and re- configurations. The word interface manifests a worldview of separation. Researchers typically conceive an interface as belonging to an artifact; that is, the technology, the material. More so, [people] typically considers user interfaces as the layer that separates and connects the technology and the user, which enables interaction. I recognize the limitations of the well-established perspective of interface design and contrast two traditional HCI concepts (namely, usability and context) from a Cartesian versus a sociomaterial perspective. However, to embrace and capitalize on the emergent digital reality, we need a new vocabulary. I introduce helpful concepts that one can use when designing and talking about experiences, and I ground the concepts in a sociomaterial ontological perspective. The concepts and design approach presented in this paper invite and encourage researchers to focus on experiences as sociomaterial entanglements and re-configurations and not as separated social and material entities. By using Michel Serres’ (1980) term quasi-objects, I call attention to the complexity of sociomaterial entanglements that make up experiences and emphasize a holistic and inclusive design approach. In addition, introducing sociomaterial concepts, such as agential cuts and intra-actions, into the human-computer interaction domain invites researchers to think and act in new ways in the era of digitalized experiences. I examine the benefits of the sociomaterial design approach and present practical guidelines on how to approach experiential design with a sociomaterial take.

  • Individual Appropriation of Learning Management Systems—Antecedents
           and Consequences

    • Authors: Andreas Janson et al.
      Abstract: IT support in the learning process constitutes a key factor for the success of innovative teaching/learning scenarios. To ensure learning success in innovative teaching/learning scenarios, learners need to faithfully apply learning management systems (LMS). However, we lack theoretical insights into which factors affect whether they do so. To help solve this issue, we first used adaptive structuration theory to identify antecedents and consequences regarding faithful LMS appropriation and embed them into a theoretical model. Second, we conducted a survey study with 173 participants to evaluate the model. The results show that the perceived IT support, interactivity, and the task-technology fit significantly affect the degree to which learners faithfully apply a LMS. Moreover, the results indicate that faithful appropriation is a significant indicator of the learning process satisfaction as well as perceived learning success. The present paper thus theoretically contributes to the scientific discussion concerning technology-mediated learning processes while also making a practical contribution by deriving implications for LMS application.

  • ECOVAL: Ecological Validity of Cues and Representative Design in User
           Experience Evaluations

    • Authors: Suzanne Kieffer
      Abstract: Egon Brunswik coined and defined the concepts of ecological validity and representative design, which are both essential to achieve external validity. However, research in HCI has inconsistently and incorrectly used Brunswik’s concept of ecological validity, which prevents the field from developing cumulative science and from generalizing the findings of user experience (UX) evaluations. In this paper, I present ECOVAL, a framework I built on Brunswik’s ideas. On the one hand, ECOVAL helps HCI researchers describe and assess the ecological validity of cues in UX evaluations. On the other hand, ECOVAL guidelines—formulated as a step-by-step procedure—help HCI researchers achieve representative design and, therefore, increase external validity. An industrial case study demonstrates the relevance of ECOVAL for achieving representative design while conducting formative UX testing. In discussing the case study, I describe how ECOVAL can help HCI researchers assess and increase the validity of UX experiments and generalize UX findings. I also illustrate the trade-offs between internal and external validities and UX resources that inevitably arise when one conducts UX experiments. From the results, I sketch avenues for future research and discuss the related challenges that future work should address.

  • Decision Confidence and Purchase Intention in Software Trials: A Cognitive
           Stopping Rule Perspective

    • Authors: Xue Yang et al.
      Abstract: Organizations often offer software trials to potential buyers as a form of promotion. The trial experience provides first- hand information of the product, which contributes to prudent purchase decisions. Despite the popularity of software trials in consumer markets, we have yet to fully understand how individuals formulate purchase decisions throughout the trial process. This study proposes a novel perspective by focusing on 1) decision confidence that individuals establish when using a software trial based on the compatible cognitive stopping rules (CSRs) they apply and 2) the influence of decision confidence on purchase intention. We conducted a controlled lab experiment in which 204 participants tried an interior design software product. We found that the participants formed their decision confidence by applying compatible CSRs during the software trial. Decision confidence augmented the positive influence of product satisfaction on purchase decision. Interestingly, decision confidence attenuated the positive relationship between a user’s satisfactory trial experience and the decision to purchase the software. We provide detailed discussions on our findings, limitations, theoretical contributions, and implications for practice.

  • Social Media Induced Technostress and its Impact on Internet Addiction: A
           Distraction-conflict Theory Perspective

    • Authors: Stoney Brooks et al.
      Abstract: Using social media is the most common activity on the Internet, and much research has examined the phenomenon. While the current literature focuses on the positives of using social media, there is a comparative lack of research on its negative effects, especially in the context of the workplace. Research has identified one critical negative impact of contemporary technology as technostress, which refers to stress induced by information and communication technologies. In this paper, we apply distraction-conflict theory (DCT) to the literature on social media, technostress, and addiction to theorize that one can view social media in the workplace as a distraction conflict, which, in turn, can induce technostress and, subsequently, Internet addiction. To test this theoretical model, we conducted a survey on 1731 participants recruited from Mechanical Turk. The survey examined the similarities and differences between two popular social media platforms: Facebook and YouTube. Overall, the results provide support for positive associations between the distraction felt from social media and social media-induced technostress and between social media- induced technostress and Internet addiction. While Facebook and YouTube have similarities, we found notable differences as well. This study contributes to the IS field by using DCT as a novel and valuable lens through which researchers and practitioners can think about the negative effects of using social media at work. The paper also offers insight into implications for research, practice, and future research areas.

  • How Do Learners Interact with E-learning' Examining Patterns of
           Learner Control Behaviors

    • Authors: Sandra Fisher et al.
      Abstract: There has been significant debate in the literature on technology-mediated training about the appropriate role of learner control. We define learner control as giving trainees the ability to make choices about how they proceed through the learning environment. We explore two perspectives. First, we consider learners’ stated preferences for the extent of control in the learning environment. Second, we analyze the actual online learning behaviors of 518 trainees in a Fortune 500 organization. We compare a measure of learner control preferences to the most commonly used framework of learner control that comprises five dimensions: pace of instruction, sequence of topics, specific content covered, amount of advice/feedback provided, and type of media. We also compare the dimensionality of learner behaviors to this framework and examine the relationship between learner preferences and learner behaviors. Results suggest that fewer dimensions can capture both learner preferences and behaviors than what the literature currently suggests. Specifically, media control aligned with both pace and content control. The relationship between stated learner control preferences and learner control behaviors was relatively weak. However, we found support for the recently identified dimension of scheduling control and suggest a new learner control dimension of performance control, consistent with the importance of practice retrieval for learning.

  • Toward a More Secure HRIS: The Role of HCI and Unconscious Behavior

    • Authors: Humayun Zafar et al.
      Abstract: By design, human resource information systems (HRIS) hold confidential and sensitive information. Therefore, one needs to ensure the security of these systems from unintentional mistakes that may compromise such information. Current systems design and training procedures of HRIS unintentionally help reinforce unsecure behaviors that result in non-malicious security breaches. Measures to improve security through design and training may only occur by breaking the use/impact cycle that individuals have habitually formed. Using strong contexts and cues allow trainers to interrupt individuals’ habits. Then, they have the opportunity to enforce the repetition of the desired behavior. This paper introduces a model of habit formation from consumer behavior that one may apply to HRIS.

  • Conceptual Modeling in Human Resource Management: A Design Research

    • Authors: Stefan Strohmeier et al.
      Abstract: In this paper, we introduce conceptual human resource modeling (CHRM) as a new methodical paradigm in HRM. To this end, we employ a design research approach. On a general level, we identify general tasks that CHRM can tackle and general solutions that it can provide. On a concrete level, we use the specific problem of employee assignment as an example and develop a specific CHRM solution for this HR task. By using the prototypical CHRM tool, we show how one can solve practical HR tasks based on CHRM. Finally, we discuss the lessons learned and implications for future research in CHRM.

  • The Importance of the Interface between Humans and Computers on the
           Effectiveness of eHRM

    • Authors: Richard D. Johnson et al.
      Abstract: Technology has had a dramatic impact on the practice of human resources, and its impact is rapidly increasing. Even so, little research has examined how to apply information systems and human-computer interaction principles to designing human resource information systems. In this paper, we focus more closely on the role that the interface between the computer and human play in the success of electronic human resource management. Specifically, we a) briefly review the individual requirements of several eHRM functions (e.g., e-recruiting, e-selection, e-learning, e- compensation/benefits), b) consider how an understanding of human computer interaction can facilitate the success of these systems, c) reviews research on technical issues associated with eHRM, and d) highlight how applying HCI principles can increase their effectiveness. In addition, we introduce the remaining seven papers in the special issue.

  • The Impact of Sentiment Analysis Output on Decision Outcomes: An Empirical

    • Authors: Parisa Lak et al.
      Abstract: User-generated online content serves as a source of product- and service-related information that reduces the uncertainty in consumer decision making, yet the abundance of such content makes it prohibitively costly to use all relevant information. Dealing with this (big data) problem requires a consumer to decide what subset of information to focus on. Peer-generated star ratings are excellent tools for one to decide what subset of information to focus on as they indicate a review’s “tone”. However, star ratings are not available for all user-generated content and not detailed enough in other cases. Sentiment analysis, a text-analytic technique that automatically detects the polarity of text, provides sentiment scores that are comparable to, and potentially more refined than, star ratings. Despite its popularity as an active topic in analytics research, sentiment analysis outcomes have not been evaluated through rigorous user studies. We fill that gap by investigating the impact of sentiment scores on purchase decisions through a controlled experiment using 100 participants. The results suggest that, consistent with the effort-accuracy trade off and effort-minimization concepts, sentiment scores on review documents improve the efficiency (speed) of purchase decisions without significantly affecting decision effectiveness (confidence).

  • How Social Media Can Enhance Access to Information through Transactive
           Memory Development

    • Authors: Hossam Ali-Hassan et al.
      Abstract: A key challenge for managing talent in organizations is locating and coordinating expertise. In this study, we propose that employees who use social media can help an organization locate knowledge workers who are vital to organizational growth and competitiveness. We draws on transactive memory (TM) theory to examine the relationship between social media use and knowledge workers’ access to information as mediated by the formation of an organization-wide transactive memory. We conducted the research using a mixed-methods approach that combined insights from a qualitative investigation with a confirmatory large-scale survey in a multinational information technology firm. We empirically show that social media use had a positive but indirect relationship with knowledge workers’ access to information via the mediation of the three dimensions of TM. We discuss our findings’ implications for theory and practice, including human resource management, and directions for future research.

  • Job Applicants’ Information Privacy Protection Responses: Using Social
           Media for Candidate Screening

    • Authors: John R. Drake et al.
      Abstract: For human resource (HR) departments, screening job applicants is an integral role in acquiring talent. Many HR departments have begun to turn to social networks to better understand job candidates’ character. Using social networks as a screening tool might provide insights not readily available from resumes or initial interviews. However, requiring access to an applicants’ social networks and the private activities occurring therein—a practice currently legal in 29 U.S. states (Deschenaux, 2015)—could induce strong moral reactions from the job candidates because of a perceived loss of information privacy. Subsequently, such disclosure requests could induce job candidates to respond in a multitude of ways to protect their privacy. Given that an estimated 2.55 billion individuals will use social media worldwide by 2017 (eMarketer, 2013), the repercussions from requests for access social media environments have potentially far-reaching effects. In this research, we examine how one such disclosure request impacted six information privacy protective responses (IPPRs) (Son & Kim, 2008) based on the job candidates’ perceived moral judgment and the perceived moral intensity of the HR disclosure request. These responses occurred when we asked respondents to provide personal login information during a hypothetical interview. By modeling data derived from a sample of 250 participants in PLS-SEM, we found that the five IPPRs (i.e., refusal, negative word of mouth, complaining to friends, complaining to the company, and complaining to third parties) were all significant responses when one judged the request to be immoral and perceived the moral intensity concept of immediate harm. The amount of variance explained by these five IPPRs ranged from 17.7 percent to 38.7 percent, which indicates a solid initial foundation from which future research can expand on this HR issue. Implications for academia and practice are discussed.
