Each section may contain principles, examples, techniques, worksheets, study questions, and key points. Section four presents six situations for choosing a literacy task analysis method to suit various settings: (1) diversifying job functions; (2) improving customer relations; (3) extending decision making; (4) bridging the skills gaps between jobs; (5) moving through company ranks; and (6) establishing criteria for staff.
