Identification of Tasks in Office Occupations: June 1973 Workshop. Final Report.
Reed, Jack C.
A shortened version of the final report of a Federally-funded developmental curriculum research project, the publication presents the findings of a workshop (University of Northern Iowa, 1973) for the purpose of identification of job tasks for entry-level office occupations from research-based materials. Studies by Lamb (Mary Lou), Lanham (Frank W.), and Perkins (Edward A.) were used by the workshop participants to identify job tasks for selected entry-level office occupations. Job performance tasks indicated in the research were the basis for the selection of the following job classifications: stenographer, secretary, receptionist, general office clerk, clerk typist, mail clerk, transcribing machine operator, office machine operator, and file clerk. Three sets of tables were prepared. Tables 1-9 list the percent of respondents performing tasks, arranged in descending order, for nine subject matter areas. Tables 9-18 list the percent of respondents performing tasks, arranged in descending order, according to subject matter and the above listed job classifications; tables 19-27 provide additional coverage of subject matter area and job classifications using a matrix format. Since lower percents did not appear significant in curriculum development for office occupations, the percent of respondents performing tasks below 30% was eliminated. (Approximately 120 pages consist of tables.) (Author/EA)
