The Process of Coordination: A Task Analysis of Vocational-Technical School Coordinators in the State of Wisconsin: Final Report.
Bordini, D. J.
The study described in the report constructed a task analysis for the adult vocational education coordinators in Wisconsin in the areas of business education, general education, home economics, agriculture, health, trade, and industry. The survey instrument contained two parts: the first gathered factual and statistical information about the coordinators; the second estimated the frequency of performance and degree of importance (to which numerical values were assigned) of the 148 tasks in the broad areas of program planning and development, instructional planning, evaluation, public relations, students, and professional growth. The resulting task analysis (organized according to the broad task areas, the tasks being ranked within each area according to the median value of the degree of importance for each of the six areas of coordination) indicated that, of all task areas, program planning and development received the highest rating of importance. Next in importance was instructional planning; public relations rated moderately important. For the other three areas, the tasks were considered moderately important, but were rarely or never performed. Nearly 100 pages of appendixes include the study instrument, the coordinators' task survey instrument, and tabulations of the degree of importance and degree of performance of the tasks. (JR)
