This document reports two literacy task analyses conducted in Burnaby, British Columbia, on a job site designated "large" and another considered "small." The report of the analysis of the "large" job site: (1) describes the goals of the analysis, which include identifying the basic skills required for the jobs studied and assessing the usefulness of literary task analysis as a means of clarifying training requirements in a construction setting); (2) describes its process; (3) profiles the carpenter, junior carpenter foreman, senior carpenter foreman, and carpenter foreman positions; (4) describes the job skills education program; (5) describes the job learning analysis method regarding each position; (6) points out the similarities and differences in the foremen's skills; (7) makes recommendations for training; (8) provides a summary of recommendations; and (9) offers a conclusion. The smaller site's report sections are similar, although the goals of the project and some of the positions analyzed are different. Among the goals were to identify similarities and differences between job requirements of tradespersons working for a large construction company and those working for a smaller construction company. The jobs analyzed are carpenter apprentice, carpenter superintendent, carpenter foreman, and carpenter. (CML)
