The JTA is a formal process for determining what people do, under what working conditions, and with what knowledge and skills. According to Judith Hale (2000), the analysis provides data to support the development of performance standards, tests, training, and criteria to judge experience, work samples, and efforts. Usually a technical committee of subject matter experts is convened to develop the task analysis, often using the outcomes of the DACUM process.

Performance standards describe a task in enough detail to support the development of tools that will help evaluators fairly judge proficiency in performing a task. Defining the standards is the cornerstone for developing the task analysis. A standard has three parts:

  • Conditions—the context in which work is performed
  • Performance—the task, behaviors, and actions involved in the work
  • Criteria—the outcomes required for performance that is “done to standard”

  • 5 Strategies to Develop A Successful System of Study

Training, coaching or learning, study round word cloud in hands

  1. Start with the homework that is hardest to you. For example, if you’re taking chemistry, math, English, and Spanish. Start with Chemistry and end with English. If you start with the hardest subject, your brain will be fresh.
  2. Develop effective memorization techniques – You can use lists when having to memorize several things (formula). Flash cards are good for memorizing large amounts of grouped information.
  3. Develop critical reading skills. As students move into higher grades, they’re assigned larger and more complex reading assignments. Poor reading skills or an inability to read for important information will make these assignments a burden and undermine overall academic success
  4. Focus on the areas that require the most attention. Study things more if you have a hard time doing them.
  5. Get help. When you don’t know what to do when you have to study for something. Don’t give up––go and talk to someone about it; don’t just keep it to yourself.
