Methods for Collecting and Analyzing Task Analysis Data.
Eschenbrenner, A. John; And Others
A semistructured research interview was used to study current task analysis procedures used by Air Force technical training personnel, and to develop and field test an improved task analysis procedure for designing and conducting technical training courses. It was found that current task analysis procedures varied widely, and that no individual or group was responsible for task analysis procedures. A simplified task analysis procedure was recommended, including development of improved methods for in-process reviews. It was also recommended that the feasibility of providing an automated information storage and retrieval system for task analysis data be studied. A handbook was developed which explains task analysis as a three-stage process: (1) converting training standards to preliminary criterion objectives; (2) subdividing the criterion objectives into component subtasks; and (3) determining the skills and knowledge underlying each subtask. (Plans are described for field testing the task analysis procedures described in the handbook). (MH)
