The questionnaire is approve by Alpha's Kronbach' test and because the amount of Alpha is (85%) and is more than 70% so the questionnaire is valid. For analyzing the data, we use indexes descriptive statistic such as frequency, percent, distribution frequency tables, mean and standard deviation. For testing of this hypothesis and understanding of the existence of meaningful relation between dependent and independent variable, the method of analysis of nonparametric correlation by the use of Spearman's statistic is used. For analysis of statistic data of research the software of SPSS and needed tables and diagrams is used.

Conclusion: The results of research show that there is positive meaningful relation between two basic factors of acceptation of information technology model (intellectual understanding or being useful and intellectual understanding of easy using and the decision of using of information technology.
