Workplace Educational Skills Analysis. Training Guide Supplement.
Manly, Donna; And Others
The Workplace Educational Skills Analysis (WESA) is a systematic process used to identify and analyze basic educational skills required to perform a job or cluster of jobs. The WESA methodology consists of the following six stages: WESA design meetings, interview preparation, interviews and observations, data analysis and draft reports, clarification meetings, and WESA final reports. This supplement is designed to be used in conjunction with the "Workplace Educational Skills Analysis Training Guide," which was developed to guide workplace education program developers in implementing the WESA process. The supplement is intended to improve the efficiency of the overall WESA process and its products. Discussed first are the WESA process, products, uses, and benefits and planned WESA enhancements. The next two sections contain sample forms/instruments and information on the procedures to be followed during the interview and observation stage and data analysis and draft reports stage of the WESA process. The following are provided in a section of tips for WESA analysts: interview, observation, employee close-out interview, and report writing suggestions; a document and data collection checklist; and sample workplace educational competency statements. Concluding the supplement are examples of completed WESA process attendant reports. (MN)
