Abstract:

Determining the proper emphasis of curriculum contents as well as judging the value or worth of training programs has become an important problem. The purpose of the paper is to demonstrate the usefulness of task analysis in measuring the effectiveness of training courses based on the extent to which curriculum contents are job oriented. In this regard, parametric and nonparametric statistical procedures are discussed as well as a matrix method of evaluation. A general methodology to include the operational significance of the data is also included. In addition, the results of a small scale experiment to determine the most valid questionnaire associated data collection method are given.
