Workplace Educational Skills Analysis. Training Guide.
Manly, Donna; And Others
Basic skills instruction can be tied to work performed on the job by conducting a Workplace Educational Skills Analysis (WESA). WESA is a systematic process used by the Wisconsin Workplace Partnership Training Program to identify and analyze the basic educational skills required on the job. Basic skills are identified in seven areas: (1) computing; (2) listening; (3) problem solving; (4) reading; (5) speaking; (6) team building; and (7) writing. The six stages of the WESA process are as follows: (1) design meetings; (2) interview preparation; (3) interviews and observations; (4) data analysis and draft reports; (5) clarification meetings; and (6) final reports. WESA information enables instructors to develop job and workplace-specific curricula, use workplace-specific materials in instruction, design competency-based participant assessment instruments, develop individualized education plans, and assist employees with career planning. Peer advisors play a vital role in the success of the programs. (Twenty references, a 35-item bibliography, and the following 13 appendices are included: (1) program components; (2) planning meeting agenda; (3) implementation strategy meeting agenda; (4) design meeting agenda; (5) interview schedule; (6) summary report; (7) supervisor interview worksheet; (8) employee interview worksheet; (9) skills observation worksheet; (10) observation worksheet; (11) detailed report; (12) Gunning Fog Index; and (13) suggested components for final reports.)
