Task Analysis Methods for Instructional Design
Task Analysis Methods for Instructional Design is a handbook of task analysis and knowledge elicitation methods that can be used for designing direct instruction, performance support, and learner-centered learning environments.
To design any kind of instruction, it is necessary to articulate a model of how learners should think and perform. This book provides descriptions and examples of five different kinds of task analysis methods:
*cognitive task analysis;
*activity-based analysis methods; and
*subject matter analysis.
Chapters follow a standard format making them useful for reference, instruction, or performance support.
"I found the section on activity-based methods particularly useful: the task is elaborated within the context in which it must be performed."
