Secretarial Science Occupational Performance Survey. Interim Report.
Borcher, Sidney D.; Joyner, John W.
Intended for the use of curriculum developers, instructors, and others concerned with planning and conducting vocational and technical education programs, this federally funded interim report presents the results of the task inventory analysis survey conducted by the project staff in the secretarial science occupations. In order to develop a system for using occupational information effectively in curriculum improvement, this survey collected data that would be useful for designing and revising 2-year associate degree programs in secretarial science technology. A task inventory was constructed after a literature review and interviews with five consultants employed in secretarial occupations. It was revised after validation by a mail survey yielding 99 useable responses from 175 employed secretaries who were members of the National Secretaries Association. Task performance frequencies, time allotments for each task, and task commonalities were determined. Job descriptions for secretarial job titles were validated. The statistical analyses of data collected in this occupational survey are appended. (Author/AG)
