Use of Job and Task Analysis in Training.
George Washington Univ., Alexandria, VA. Human Resources Research Office.
A t a briefing sponsored by the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Individual Training, members of the Human Resources Research Office reported on four projects using job and task analysis in different training situations. Wor k Unit STOCK was a training program designed to develop training management procedures for heterogeneous ability groups. It was intended to use task analysis in a dynamic way, to develop the course content rather than merely to provide information. Wor k Unit Main Battle Tank (MBT) was the first application of a complete human factors approach to any Army system. Work Unit CAMBOM was an exploratory study of the knowledges, skills, and thought processes of the battalion commander and his principal staff officers. Work Unit UPGRADE involved an application of job analysis to a specific aircraft maintenance problem and a comparative study of several techniques for gathering and using job descriptive data. Concluding remarks analyze the general issues raised by the four reports. (JY)
