Abstract:

The reliability of the Functional Job Analysis tasks contained in the task bank is the most critical factor in determining their usefulness to the Coast Guard. Reliability is based on the agreement of 75 or more of the ratings as determined by two independent groups of raters one group trained in Functional Job Analysis techniques and knowledgeable of the systems under study and one group trained under Functional Job Analysis techniques and not knowledgeable of the system. The latter group establishes the reliability of the tasks written and edited by the former group. Reliability on this study was found to be 98.1. Beyond the criteria which affect the reliability study, additional constructive criticism is offered. The detailed recommendations appear on the comment sheet attached to each individual task statement. These task statements and comment sheets were submitted as appendices to the draft report on March 1977 and are currently in the possession of the U.S. Coast Guard. Author
