This is a checklist for ensuring all gets done during a task analysis.

  • Examined each task to determine performance requirements?
  • Identified collective tasks, and individual tasks?
  • Reviewed or developed an individual task list?
  • Reviewed or developed a collective task list?
  • Traced collective tasks back to the organizational task list?
  • Checked that each task is directly observable or otherwise measurable?
  • Selected the best action verb during data collection to assist in the writing of learning objectives?
  • Tasks include conditions under which the task will be performed (at night, a particular location, etc.)?
  • Tasks include the standard of performance that must be achieved, expressed in terms of accuracy, completeness, sequence, or speed?
  • Identified how often the tasks are performed (frequency)?
  • Identified how critical the task is (importance)?
  • Identified task complexity?
  • Identified the difficulty of learning the task?
  • Identified task delay tolerance?
  • Identified tasks safety requirements?
  • Defined task cues for tasks to be performed, regulated, or stopped ?
  • Determined start and stop points for each task?
  • Identified task training requirements?
  • Determined which tasks may be supported by a job aid rather than training (where physical conditions allow)?
  • Selected tasks for training (using difficulty, importance, frequency model)?
  • Performed KSA analysis on the reduced inventory of task selected to train?
  • Reviewed all tasks for each job to ensure that no gaps exist and that task overlap/redundancy is minimal?
  • Documented the tasks selected for training?
  • Identified task interactions and sequencing? ## KSA Analysis
  • Identified job training requirements and determined the knowledge, skills, and attitudes required to attain the stated competencies?
  • Determined the KSAs required to perform the tasks selected for training?
