Developed in Virginia, this publication contains task analysis guides to support selected tech prep programs that prepare students for careers in the engineering, trade, and technical cluster. Three occupations are profiled: drafting and design technology, precision machining technology, and electronics technology. Each guide contains the following essential elements: (1) an occupational task list derived from a panel of local workers or employers (occupational analysis); (2) a list of courses and programs that make up the tech prep program; (3) a collection of secondary and postsecondary instructional objectives and performance measures that reflect the occupational analysis; and (4) a list of resources that can be used to support instruction. The task lists are comprised of a duty area, a task or competency, a performance objective, a performance measure, and enabling objectives and activities. (KC)
