A Guide to Task Analysis for Competency Based Education. Trade and Technical Programs. Task Linkage Project Publication No. 2.
Georgia State Univ., Atlanta. School of Education.
Developed through synthesis and review of existing task analysis literature, this guide lists tasks expected to be performed by workers in nine trade and industrial occupations and presents information for incorporating these tasks into articulated secondary and postsecondary competency based vocational education programs. Task listings are presented for the following occupational clusters: buildlng construction, cosmetology, drafting occupations, electro-mechanical occupations, electronics, food service occupations, graphic arts, metal working occupations, and transportation. Tasks are listed by suggested instructional sequence with various program exit points noted by job title. An introduction and five appendixes discuss using these task lists for program development. The appendixes cover the following topics: an overview of competency based education; the relationship of duties, tasks, performance objectives, and criterion referenced measures; understanding duties, tasks, and procedural steps in competency based instruction; completers, leavers, and the concept of multiple career options (discussion of organizing a curriculum which allows students to take only a portion of an instructional sequence and still be a program completer by federal guidelines) and a model for curriculum organization. A bibliography follows. (MN)
