This research investigates how users make technology acceptance decisions in these two contexts. Based on the context-specific theorization framework proposed by Hong et al. (2014) and integrating General Evaluability Theory and Construal Level Theory, we theorize how evaluation mode (JE vs. SE), as a usage context variable, interacts with other aspects of IS contexts to influence technology acceptance. The IS contexts considered in this study include a user characteristic variable (construal level) and technology-related factors (perceived ease of use, PEoU and perceived usefulness, PU). Two experiments showed that, in JE, a higher construal level strengthened the effect of PEoU but weakened that of PU on technology acceptance.
