Directory of Task Inventories. Volume 1, 1974.
Ohio State Univ., Columbus. Center for Vocational and Technical Education.
The information reported in this directory was compiled from a review of documents from state educational and employment service agencies, occupational curriculum laboratories and research coordinating units, branches of the armed forces, selected private research and development agencies, and other organizations. Task inventories resulting from research and analysis efforts of university graduate research departments, federal agencies, and industry are not reported in this volume of the directory, but will, as received by Task Inventory Exchange, be included in volume 2. To be listed in this directory, the tasks were not required to meet any rigid definition of a task. The numerous documents reviewed identified activities of a job. Some activities were stated at a very general level, representative of broad duties or functions. Others cited extensive lists of component knowledges and skills. Inventories which were known to be in existence but not available to requesters, were excluded from this directory. Task inventories are of value to curriculum developers, training directors, researchers, personnel officers, industrial engineers, and vocational teachers and administrators. They are used for many purposes including identification of relevant training content, selection of appropriate training programs and methods, development of critical learning objectives in occupational preparation programs, development of tests for job skills, and setting standards for equal opportunities employment programs.
