Task and Skill Analysis: A Methodology of Curricula Development for the Disadvantaged.
Centanni, Frederick A.
This document outlines training and educational problems confronting the trainee in private business and industry and recommends a methodology which can be used to develop the training/educational approach. Phase I is a labor market analysis, using Boston's Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area as an example of an area and of the kinds of data collected and used. Phase II is task and skill analysis (TASA); this collects information on training time objectives, general educational development reasoning, mathematics, and language requirements, types of occupational situations, special tools and equipment, physical demands, aptitudes, physical work area, and skill complexity. Phase III, curriculum development, is based on the Sylvania technical concept called DELTA (Direct Employment from Local Training Activities), which consists of analyzing job requirements and developing a training program while recognizing the commonality of instruction and individual abilities of the students. The electronics industry is used as an example of how this core concept progresses from conceptual to operational status. (Appendixes include occupational titles and codes, the Boston Standard Metropolitan Statistical Area, visual aids, and a glossary of terms. There are numerous tables and charts.) (EB)
