This study updates prior research and examines the stability of the factors underlying computer anxiety across time and with a different population of subjects. A factor analysis revealed four distinct factors in the computer anxiety construct: general anxiety toward computer usage, confidence in learning ability, motivation to learn, and power or control of usage. These results validate prior research that found computer anxiety to be a multi-dimensional construct.
