Occupational Analysis of Educational Planning.
Braden, Paul V.; Paul, Krishan
The book deals comprehensively with occupational analysis, which is defined as the means for identifying and organizing that part of instructional content which is relevant to targeted performance situations. Occupational analysis yields useful information for instructional needs and helps to determine critical performance aspects warranting inclusion in the instructional programs. Part 1 discusses the nature of occupational education and provides the conceptual background needed for planning for occupational education including data requirements for the planning process. Part 2 discusses the nature, techniques, and utility of occupational analysis. Reasons for and methods of job and occupational classification are presented. Some techniques of task and job analysis are discussed in the context of applied occupational education program planning. Techniques of identification and derivation of instructional objectives which are based on occupational analysis of both jobs and tasks are presented. The instructional objectives become the building blocks of program content and are essential to occupational program planning. Appended materials include some definitions of job and task analysis, a review of the Comprehensive Employment and Training Act of 1973, a bibliography, and a tabulation of the percent distribution of occupation employment by industry in 1969 and 1975. An index is included. (Author/EC)
