The goal of this research was to examine the quality of questionnaires of innovation models. This inquiry is important because acceptance rates of innovations are measured by innovation acceptance models, and the quality of questionnaires of innovation acceptance models affects the reliability of results. Five different innovation acceptance models, including Theory of Reasoned Action (Fishbein and Ajzen, 1975), Theory of Planned Behavior (Ajzen, 1991), Technology Acceptance Model (Davis, 1989), Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (Venkatesh, Morris, Davis, & Davis, 2003), and Innovation Diffusion Model (Rogers, 1995) were used for this research. Derived from five different innovation acceptance models, thirty-one dissertations were examined. Dissertation questionnaires were evaluated if the questionnaires address the core constructs of innovation acceptance models and the questions of questionnaires include wording that might affect the response of participants. The results of the study showed that although questionnaires of innovation acceptance models address the core constructs of the model, they do not include impartial wording in their questions with high percentage.
