چکیده [English]

Internet is an important part of everyday life of the present society. The Technology Acceptance Model of Davis tries to give analysis of how to use internet. Attitudes towards internet are one of the variables of the model. The present paper tries to test validity of attitudes towards internet. The data in this study was collected among BA and MA male and female students from Isfahan University and Islamic Azad University, Dehaghan Branch using survey research. The tool used was Jones and Clark questionnaire on attitudes towards internet. The results indicated that the students’ attitudes towards internet were expressed at a high level. Significant difference in attitudes towards the internet based on sex, kind of university and level of education was not observed. The reliability of the research tool was 0.84. The factor analysis confirmed that all 40 items of the tool could be reduced to three factors, which indicates the constructor validity of the tool.
