Job Title Analysis for Selected Job Titles in Horticulture. Final Report.
Brown, C. Edward
The systematic development of horticulture curriculum for Indiana was the focus of this research project which validated a job task list for use in instructional material development. The job title catalog, A Landscape Gardener, was selected from those currently available through the Vocational-Technical Consortium of States (V-TECS) program. A purposive study as outlined in the V-TECS technical reference handbook was undertaken to validate this job title catalog for Indiana. Survey instruments were sent to job incumbent personnel in horticulture businesses and data from twenty returned surveys was tabulated and analyzed. From the selected list of 165, job incumbents selected 109 as those most commonly performed, also indicating tools commonly used and amount of time spent at various tasks. Finally the validated list of tasks contained in the job title catalog were sequenced to facilitate further work in instructional materials development. (Survey instruments and survey data are included in the appendixes.) (JH)
