Nowadays, Student Information System (SIS) also known as “Aplikasi Pangkalan Data Murid (APDM)” is widely used by many schools and getting attention by many researchers in various angles and issues. Before conducting any software adoption study on the implementation of APDM, an immediate action on the basic issues of the adoption factors that influence the APDM usage needs to be performed. The existing APDM adoption factors are not comprehensively constructed and tested in technical (User Interface: Screen, Terminology, Learning and System Capabilities), social (Perceived Usefulness, Perceived Ease of use), and behavioral (User Satisfaction) perspectives. Therefore, this study aims to identify the software adoption factors that influence the adoption of APDM in Kubang Pasu, Kedah secondary schools. A survey was conducted on 110 teachers from five secondary schools. Data were analyzed using correlation, analysis of variance and multiple regression tests. The findings show that the APDM screen layout is the most influential significant factor on Perceived Usefulness and Perceived Ease of Use. In addition, Perceived Usefulness is the most influential factor on User Satisfaction towards APDM as compared to Perceived Ease of Use. In sum, the teachers perceived that the APDM‟s screen layout was very helpful, contains adequate information, and easy to navigate. The findings may contribute to the educational domain particularly in recommending decision makers of the Ministry of Education Malaysia (MOE) for APDM future enhancement.
