Conducting the Job Task Analysis.
Burkhart, Jennifer
This guide, which is intended for project directors, coordinators, and other professional staff involved in developing and delivering workplace education programs, explains the process of conducting a job task analysis to create customized curricula to meet the workplace education students' needs. After a brief discussion of the rationale for conducting a job task analysis, the job task analysis process is described as a procedure whereby supervisors and competent workers are observed, questioned, interviewed, and asked to supply materials so that the work-related competencies and basic skills required to perform a given job can be identified and used as a basis for developing a job-specific curriculum. Provided next are general guidelines for conducting a job task analysis and specific guidelines for interviewing/observing and collecting and organizing information. Also included are the following: sample employee and supervisor questionnaires; lists of reading, grammar/usage, math, writing, and speaking skills typically required in the workplace; lists of selected work-related competencies in the areas of identifying/using resources, working with others, acquiring/using information, understanding complex interrelationships/systems, and working with technology; and a sample job task analysis form. Contains a list of nine informational resources. (MN)
