Task Analysis. A Process Manual for the Development of New and or Modification of Instructional Curricula.
This manual presents a suggested methodology for secondary and postsecondary vocational education school systems which can be used in designing new programs and courses and in maintaining or modifying existing programs or courses for the purpose of developing student skills which correspond to the employer-required skills necessary for successful entry-level employment. This process is intended to provide users with a uniform and systematic method for organizing current job tasks, skills, and knowledges presently taught from vocational education course outlines. The organization of the manual divides the process into four unique procedures, each requiring a separate form to be completed. These four procedures are the following: (1) identification of Dictionary of Occupational Title (DOT) codes, titles, and critical factors with the United States Office of Education (USOE) codes, titles and descriptors; (2) development of competencies based on DOT definitions; (3) establishment of course content framework; and (4) development of course competency outlines. Several materials are appended, including a course outline, instructional analysis guide, performance objectives, and definitions of terms. (BM)
