Task Validation of 16 General Merchandising: Department Store Occupations.
Williams, Terry M.; And Others
A study was conducted to identify the tasks relevant to sixteen occupations with the IDECC (Interstate Distributive Education Curriculum Consortium) course, General Merchandising: Department Store, in order to test new standards of occupational task analysis. Job relevancy data were provided by three types of task data: (1) extent that task is part of the job, (2) desired task occurrence, and (3) learning location. Completed task inventory questionnaires from thirty states provided task data for the sixteen occupations being studied. (Major findings of the research effort are summarized in a table of relevant tasks for sixteen department store occupations. The comprehensive list of tasks and equipment and materials and a cross reference of task statements with existing IDECC competencies are appended.) (LRA)
