Task Analysis is not only the most important component of
Instructional Design but also the most often misconstrued and
poorly executed. Starting with this premise these authors have
developed a complete reference and instructional text on Task
Analysis. The "Handbook of Task Analysis ProcedureS" fulfills three
distinct purposes. As an overview of the field it presents a
comprehensive collection of functions, techniques and tools that
can be used in a variety of settings. Thirty-five different
procedures are cataloged and described in individual chapters.
Providing flowcharts and examples, it is organized to instruct the
reader on how to perform these techniques. Finally all chapters
have been consistently structed making it an ideal reference

reader select a specific task analysis technique for a particular
situation. Having done this, the reader can then refer to the
appropriate chapter for his chosen technique. This chapter provides
a statement of purpose, an overview, and applications. It then
presents a step by step description of how to use the procedure.
The chapter concludes with examples, an evaluation, and a complete
set of references. Designed to be used in education and by trainers
in the business sector, this volume is a unique reference book.
