Performance Content for Job Training. Volume 2. Stating the Tasks of the Job. Research and Development Series No. 122.
Ammerman, Harry L.
Designed to be of value to both occupational curriculum personnel and those persons concerned with noncurriculum issues of occupational description and updating of job content information, this volume is the second of a five-volume set describing a systematic approach for constructing task inventories, surveying the task performance of occupations, and analyzing survey data to determine the appropriate performance content for job training. This volume guides the user through an explicit set of procedural steps for developing comprehensive lists of task statements pertaining to the work done in a particular occupation, function, or cluster of related occupations. In sections 1 and 2, the user is introduced to the nature and characteristics of a task statement. Various problems likely to be encountered when constructing such statements of work activity are also discussed in section 2. Additional procedural steps for the reviewing, editing, and pilot testing of task statements prior to their subsequent use in occupational survey questionnaires are described in section 3. (SH)
