Abstract:

The primary report covering the development of a mechanism for providing objective feedback from Army field units regarding the adequacy of occupational training in Army Service Schools, has been reported on by the Contractor under separate cover. The additional analyses, dealing with the relationship among CODAP tasks, Duty Module tasks and Skill Qualification Test tasks and their utility for providing training information feedback, is contained in this second volume Volume II. The scope of size of a job task varies considerably depending on what the job data are to be used for an the level of the job the task data are defining. Job tasks that are to be used for personnel classification and assignment must be fairly broad in scope while those to be used to design an occupational training course for a piece of new equipment must be more detailed. Those that are describing a field grade officer position can be comprehensive in size while those describing a junior grade enlisted job must, by the nature of the work, be narrow and specific. The programs from which the task data were drawn were the DA program of enlisted Skill Qualification Tests, the military Personnel Centers CODAP program of inventorying enlisted jobs on a cyclic basis, and the USARI program of developing Duty Modules for officer and enlisted jobs.
