A Catalog of Tasks, Performance Objectives, Performance Guides, Tools, and Equipment, Homemaker Human Development.
Watkins, Betty; And Others
This catalog was designed to provide performance objectives and performance guides associated with current occupational information relating to the job of homemaker. The performance objectives and guides were developed following a literature review and a survey of random samples of homemakers in the five participating states (Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, South Carolina, and Tennessee) to determine equipment used, tasks performed and time spent performing each task. Each performance objective contains the following elements: (1) the condition under which the worker will perform the objective; (2) the behavior to be exhibited; and (3) the standard of performance, as set by people who are successful homemakers and through recognized authoritative publications. The performance guides that accompany the objectives are procedural steps in accomplishing a task and may be reviewed to obtain enabling objectives. Performance objectives cover the following duties (which are broken down further into related tasks): administering first aid for home emergencies; caring for family pets; caring for sick, injured, and handicapped persons at home; caring for infants; caring for children, providing child guidance and development; managing interpersonal relationships and maintaining home safety. Appendixes to the catalog contain lists of tools and equipment used for clothing and textiles, human development, and management and family economics; references for standards; general references; and cross references of duties, tasks, and performance objectives.
