Task Analysis. A Process Manual for the Development of New and/or Modification of Instructional Curricula.
Lindsey, Michael; And Others
This manual presents a Task Analysis Process (TAP) designed to provide its users with a method to systematically analyze occupations in terms of tasks and procedural techniques for organizing them and related knowledges into vocational education program curricula. The process is intended for use by secondary and postsecondary schools for designing new programs and courses and maintaining or modifying existing programs and courses. Introductory information lists benefits, grouped by user population, that are derived from TAP implementation and discusses personnel and their responsibilities and required resources. Step-by-step instructions follow that are meant for use as a suggested sequence of activities for completing the TAP. The TAP is composed of three major sections, each containing a corresponding worksheet to be completed by the Task Analyst(s). Worksheet 1 allows for identification of the vocational education program and its associated occupational outcomes. Each of these associated occupations is then broken down into its component tasks using Worksheet 2. These component tasks and other occupation-related skills and knowledges are grouped into courses on Worksheets 3A and 3B in the third section. An introduction, sample, instructions, and examples are provided for each worksheet. Appendexes include course outline and lesson plan development, Program Course Inventory, and worksheets. (YLB)
