Conducting Task Analyses and Developing Instructional Objectives. Vocational Education Curriculum Specialist, Module 8.
Appleby, Judith A.
One of five modules in the curriculum development series of the 16-module series designed to train vocational education curriculum specialists, this module is intended for use in classes or individual study arrangements at the preservice or inservice level by students with varying amounts of experience in vocational education. (These modules are revised versions of earlier study guides--see note.) Introductory materials include an overview, instructions to the learner, detailed list of behavioral goals and objectives, and resources needed to complete learning activities. The module is divided into two sections, each based on one of the goals. Two general activities associated with objectives are dealt with. Section 1 concerns derivation of objectives for instruction, including location or development of general job description, task analysis, selection of tasks for instruction, description of target population, and determination of course prerequisites. Section 2 focuses on specification of objectives, including writing objectives and selecting their content. Each section follows a standard format: text, individual study activities, discussion questions, and group activities. A summary of the module follows. Appendixes include a description of the Dictionary of Occupational Titles coding system, suggested responses to the study activities, a self-check, responses to the self-check, and recommended references.
