Using the extended task-technology fit (TTF) model, this paper aims to examine satisfaction and usability of internet usage on studentsâ assignment completion tasks and their performance. In the extended TTF model, technology resistance and technology usage was also considered. The study was conducted at a management institute in Mumbai and questionnaires were distributed to 200 post-graduate students. The results indicate that technology satisfaction and the internet usage significantly explains the variance on studentsâ performance. Task-technology fit is the predictor for internet usage, whereas it is not a predictor for technology resistance. Technology Satisfaction is the predictor of Technology resistance, studentâs performance and internet usage. Internet usage is the predictor of Technology satisfaction and studentâs performance. Since these factors are found to have significant relationship with studentsâ performance, the management and decision makers in universities and institutes need to give higher importance as to how students could use the internet efficiently and effectively.
