Driver Education Task Analysis. Volume I: Task Descriptions. Final Report (August 1969-July 1970).
McKnight, A. James; Adams, Bert B.
This resource guide is the first of a 4-volume report dealing with the development of driver education objectives through an analysis of the driver's task. Included are a detailed description of the behaviors required of passenger car drivers, rated criticalities of these behaviors, and items of supporting information relating to driver performance and performance limits, enabling driver knowledges and skills, and behavior criticality. The task descriptions have been organized in terms of the situations giving use to the behaviors, behaviors that must be performed continuously or periodically while driving, rather than in response to a specific situation; and those off-road behaviors that are performed before driving to maintain the car in sound operating conditions, and in compliance with the legal regulations. The second volume (available as VT 019 911 in this issue) provides a description of the manner in which the content of this volume was generated. Volume III, which contains the performance and enabling objectives and the evaluation instrument, is available as ED 072 249, while Volume IV, which describes the procedures used to develop the objectives, is available as VT 019 910 in this issue.
