Abstract

This article introduces the concept of IT training sequences and examines how sequencing of conceptual and procedural training impact IT task performance, user satisfaction, and users’ self-efficacy. Using assimilation theory, we develop four hypotheses related to training sequences. These hypotheses were then tested in a database design context using a quasi-experimental study involving student subjects. Empirical results demonstrate improved far transfer and near transfer task performance and higher self-efficacy for subjects trained in the conceptual-procedural sequence versus the reverse sequence, though user satisfaction was not significantly different between the two sequences. Implications for IT training research are discussed.
