A Study of Job Demands and Curriculum Development in Agricultural Training Related to the Muskegon County Wastewater Management System. Final Report. Volume II. Task Analysis Results.
Fisher, Harold S.; And Others
This is the second volume of a four-volume report of a research project designed to (1) identify job needs for agricultural occupations which will result from the Muskegon County Wastewater Management System and perform a task analysis on each occupation, (2) develop instructional modules and determine their place in either high school or 2-year college programs, and (3) implement an articulated curriculum with actual programs. This volume focuses on the first objective--task analysis. The introductory section discusses project activities performed in analyzing tasks for related occupations and occupations concerned with wastewater management systems. The majority of the document (211 pages) is composed of task analysis results for the occupations identified: wastewater treatment operator, wastewater treatment laboratory technician, agricultural equipment mechanic, farm equipment operator, farm manager, field supervisor, irrigator, and grain drier operator. Using a column format, the following information is presented for each occupation: Job skills (percent indicated entry skill and relative importance in percentages), job knowledges (relative importance in percentages), job behaviors (relative importance in percentages), and basic skills (relative importance in percentages). The four appendixes contain information related to data collection, with appendix A illustrating the format used to collect data pertaining to job skills, knowledges, behaviors, and basic skills for the occupations studied.
