The Analysis and Definition of Job Types Within the Adult Basic Education Career Field in Texas.
Goodgame, Doug; And Others
The document presents the final report of a study to (1) identify job types in adult basic education in Texas and (2) provide a job-related basis for making management decisions at the State level, affecting local programs in adult basic education. A job inventory instrument was developed, containing 23 duties and 539 tasks, and was administered to the approximately 2,711 adult educators in Texas, with a 60% return rate. The Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Programs (CODAP) processed and analyzed the occupational data. Three significant job types within the adult basic education career field were identified: (1) mathematics and general education degree (GED) preparation; (2) communication skills, basic education, and ESL; (3) mathematics, communication skills, GED preparation, and basic education. A discussion of the problem, review of related literature, examination of the research procedures, presentation of data (through 22 tables), and summary, conclusions, and recommendations are presented. Appended material includes the job inventory utilized in the study (40 pages) and description of CODAP data summaries. It is recommended that the Texas Education Agency, which administers all adult education programs in the State, develop a personnel and position requirement program. (LH)
