Performance Content for Job Training. Volume 3. Identifying Relevant Job Performance. Research and Development Series No. 123.
Ammerman, Harry L.
This volume is the third of five volumes 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. (The approach, referred to as the task survey process, is 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, through an explicit set of procedural steps, describes the design, administration, and analysis of questionnaire surveys of occupational performance (surveys which describe the extent to which task activities are part of the job expectancies of workers in a particular occupation or function). Four activities (presented in separate sections) are included: planning survey design and analysis, administering questionnaire to worker and supervisors, processing survey data, and reporting the survey results.
