Overview

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:
*job/behavioral analysis;
*learning analysis;
*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.
