Task Analysis for Training the Disadvantaged.
National Civil Service League, Washington, DC.
New programs offer fresh opportunities to create new careers with potential for disadvantaged adults to grow and develop. This publication describes some practical ways to view jobs in determining whether to restructure to form new opportunities. The process of task analysis involves identification of the duties, taks, and elements of the job content, description of the knowledges, skills, abilities, and decisions prerequisite to successful learning and performance of job task, and establishment of the specific, precisely-stated job-related performance objectives which provide directional content guidance and adequacy tests for training. Guidelines are provided for identifying and stating performance objectives, distinguishing and using job analysis terminology, and developing and testing the accuracy and thoroughness of a task list. The task list combines the tasks, behavioral objectives, and knowledges, skills, abilities, and decisions into a logical format. A related document is available as VT 012 080 in this issue. (SB)
