This task analysis guide is intended to help teachers and administrators develop instructional materials and implement competency-based education in the dental aide program. Section 1 contains a validated task inventory for dental aide. For each task, applicable information pertaining to performance and enabling objectives, criterion-referenced measures, and suggested instructional activities and aids is provided. In this section, tasks are arranged by worker duty area only, and no attempt is made to sequence tasks in instructional order. Section 2 provides a description of the dental aide program. These materials follow: descriptions of the dental aide I and II courses, task sequence lists that provide a suggested order of the task inventory for the actual course instruction, and course content outlines. The instructional topics within the course content outlines have been cross-referenced with corresponding task/competency codes from the task inventory in Section 1. A bibliography is followed by two appendixes: lists of suggested resources and additional references and a listing of equipment/supplies. (YLB)
