Cognitive Absorption Correlation Matrix**H1a: The CA score is positively related to the number of sites visited while foraging. Individuals with a high CA score are likely to visit more websites than those with low CA scores. H1b: The CA score is positively related to the number of pages accessed while foraging. Individuals with a high CA score are likely to visit more web pages within a site than those with low CA scores. • H1a: IS REJECTED • H1b: IS REJECTED**Table 6.3.2.

Individuals with a high CPS score are likely to visit more web sites than those with low CPS scores. H2b: The CPS score is positively related to the number of pages accessed while foraging. Individuals with a high CPS score are likely to visit more web pages than those with low CPS scores. • H2a: IS REJECTED • H2b: IS REJECTED**Table 6.3.3.

Computer Self-Efficacy Correlation Matrix**H4a: The CSE score is negatively related to the number of sites visited while foraging. Individuals with a high CSE score are likely to visit fewer websites than those with low CSE scores. H4b: The CSE score is negatively related to the number of pages accessed while foraging. Individuals with a high CSE score are likely to visit fewer web pages than those with low CSE scores. • H4a: IS REJECTED • H4b: IS REJECTED**Table 6.3.5. Age Correlation Matrix**H5a: Age is negatively related to the number of sites visited. Older individuals visit fewer websites than younger individuals. H5b: Age is negatively related to the number of pages visited. Older individuals visit fewer web pages than younger individuals. • H5a: IS REJECTED • H5b: IS REJECTED**Table 6.3.6b. T-scores Gender Difference of Means (assuming**unequal variance) *97% confidence H6a: When foraging, males visit more websites than females. H6b: When foraging, males visit more web pages than females. • H6a: IS REJECTED • H6b: IS REJECTED, BUT SUPPORTED IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION (When purchasing on-line, males visit less web pages than females)**Table 6.3.7a. Education level and Observed**Number of Websites visited. Table 6.3.7b. Education level and Expected Number of Websites visited. Based on this data we calculated a Chi-Squared value of 9.562 and 6 degrees of freedom [(k-1)*(n-1)]. Based on this, there appears to only an 85.5% confidence that differences in the number of websites visited exists between the various education levels H7a: Education level is positively related with the number of sites visited. Individuals with higher levels of education are more likely to visit more websites than those with lower levels of education. • H7a: IS REJECTED**Table 6.3.7c. Education level and Observed**Number of Web pages visited. Table 6.3.7d. Education level and Expected Number of Web pages visited. Based on this data we calculated a Chi-Squared value of 14.861 and 6 degrees of freedom [(k-1)*(n-1)]. Based on this, we found that differences do in fact exists between the various education levels and the number of web pages accessed when buying on-line (99% confidence). H7b: Education level is positively related with the number of pages visited. Individuals with higher levels of education are more likely to visit more web pages than those with lower levels of education. • H7b: IS REJECTED, BUT SUPPORTED IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION (When purchasing on-line, higher educated individuals visit less web pages than those less educated)**Table 6.3.8a Non-Linear Prediction Model Accuracy**of Purchases based on Web Pages visited H8: A non-linear relationship exists between the number of pages accessed and the likelihood of surrender. • H8: IS SUPPORTED**Figure 6.3.8b Predictive Probability distribution**Based on web pages Visited**Table 6.3.9 Perceived Usefulness and Patch**Exhaustion Correlation Matrix H9a: The perceived usefulness based on previous experience is positively related to the time a user will spend on reviewing search results at an e-commerce site. H9b: The perceived usefulness based on previous experience is positively related to the site time the user will spend at an e-commerce site (patch). (site time is defined as the foraging time less the reviewing time). • H9a: IS SUPPORTED • H9b: IS SUPPORTED**Table 6.3.10a Patch Exhaustion Correlation Matrix**It is interesting to see that there are no significant correlations between the participant’s experience with a website and the order they access the sites. However, there is a significant correlation between the Perceived Usefulness rank of the websites and how the participants accessed the sites (r = 0.502, 99.9% confidence). This supports the Optimal Foraging Theory predictions from biology (Smith and Dawkins, 1971; Smith and Sweatman, 1974), which suggested that such as behavior should also be exhibited by humans. H10a: The order of access of a site is positively related with perceived usefulness based on previous experience. Users perform patch exhaustion based on perceived usefulness of sites based on previous experience. • H10a: IS SUPPORTED**Table 6.3.10b Access Order and Site time Correlation Matrix**H10b: The order of site access is positively related to the time a person will spend reviewing search results. Users are accessing sites that they are willing to spend more time reviewing items from first. H10c: The order of site access is positively related to the site time the user will spend at an e-commerce site. Users are accessing sites that they are willing to spend more time at first (site time is defined as the foraging time less the reviewing time). Participants actually spent less time at the websites they accessed first, and more time at later sites. Since, we separated the ‘acquisition time’ in the analysis, the correlations does not originate by the fact that most purchases were done by the later websites. The reason for this finding may be due to the ‘state of mind’ by the participants when executing a search. Initially, a person may be in an exploration mode where the focus is on exploration breath and the belief that more websites should be examined. As a result, less time may be devoted to the first websites visited. At subsequent websites, this desire may have been met and the individual become more focused on exploration depth. • H10b: IS REJECTED BUT SUPPORTED IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION (user spent less time reviewing items offered for sale at websites they access first, more at subsequent sites) • H10c: IS REJECTED BUT SUPPORTED IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION (user spent less time at websites they access first and more at subsequent sites)**H11a: The time to access a web page is positively related**with the likelihood of site surrender and negatively related with the likelihood of acquisition. The longer a web page takes to load, the more likely that it will be abandoned and the less likely that the user will make a purchase from it. H11b: The time needed to orient at a web page is positively related with the likelihood of site surrender and negatively related with the likelihood of acquisition. The longer it takes to orient, the more likely that it will be abandoned and the less likely that the user will make a purchase from it. H11c: The time needed to enter a search at a web page is positively related with the likelihood of site surrender and negatively related with the likelihood of acquisition. The longer it takes to enter all required search criteria, the more likely that it will be abandoned and the less likely that the user will make a purchase from it. H11d: The time needed to execute a search at a web page is positively related with the likelihood of site surrenders and negatively related with the likelihood of acquisition. The longer it takes to execute a search, the more likely that it will be abandoned and the less likely that the user will make a purchase from it. H11e: The time needed to review the results from a website is positively related with the likelihood of site surrender and negatively related with the likelihood of acquisition. The longer it takes to review items from a search, the more likely that it will be abandoned and the less likely that the user will make a purchase from it.**Table 6.3.11a Binary Regression Coefficients for Predicted**Buy Vs.
