Job Performance Analysis for Educators and Trainers.
Campbell, Clifton Paul
Designed for those who are concerned with gathering job performance information, this manual presents methodology and techniques used to analyze jobs and to record the analysis. Chapter 1, an introduction, discusses briefly the uses of job analyses in trade and technical course construction and instructional materials development, in career counseling and placement, as well as in competency and performance evaluation. Job analysis principles are presented in chapter 2: Complete and accurate identification of the job, complete and accurate description of the tasks of the job, and indication of the requirements the job makes upon the worker for successful performance. The other four chapters contain explanation and instructions for developing the various sections of a job analysis schedule. Chapter 3 deals with the first four items on a schedule (Job Title, Data and Number of Sheets, Alternate Titles, and Dictionary Title and Code). Chapter 4 deals with the "Work Performed" item of a schedule, which should present a statement regarding the tasks performed by a worker in accomplishing the purpose of his/her job. The guidelines for writing this section include focus on introductory sentences, task arrangement, treatment of unusual equipment and terms, and citation of degree of skill and percent of time. Chapter 5 covers the items on a schedule dealing with performance requirements: Responsibility, Job Knowledge, Mental Application, and Dexterity and Accuracy. Chapter 6 deals with the comments section of a schedule: Equipment, Materials and Supplies, Definitions of Terms, and General Comments. Three model job analysis schedules are appended: Part Programer (Numerical Control), Lubrication Man (Vehicle), and Check-Out Clerk (Grocery Store). (JT)
