Abstract:

This document contains procedures for generating on-the-job training, task proficiency assessment instruments for maintenance and equipment-oriented tasks. Application of these Task Evaluation Form TEF development procedures to a specific procedures to a specific task results in a TEF that can be used by an evaluator to assess a trainees proficiency at performing that task. The TEF development procedures guide the development in making decisions related to the evaluation of task performance. Potential performer actions and outcomes are divided into evaluation areas timespeed, sequence-following, end product, safety, and tools, equipment, and materials use. The TEF development procedures guide the developer in determining which evaluation areas are critical to successful task performance. Every step or event in the task is considered to determine at which points each evaluation area is critical. Once critical task events or steps are identified, the developer describes exactly what performer actions and outcomes reflect successful task performance. In addition to guiding the developer in identifying and describing critical aspects of task performance, the TEF development procedures also provide instructions for creating an evaluation scenario and developing a chart for scoring task performance. Keywords assessment methodology, critical steps and events, performance standards.
