Job Task Analysis

A job task analysis (JTA) is a recognized process of identifying, categorizing, and quantifying the demands of an occupational classification. Several methods exist including expert panel findings, incumbent ratings, direct observation/measurement, and field interviews. This process is a critical step in the development and validation of standards and is specified in the EEO Guidelines.

Multiple methods of analysis may be used in a given study, but the goal is to differentiate tasks by their frequency, intensity, duration, and importance or criticality for a given occupational classification or job. The results of the JTA are used in the construction of criterion tests, the writing of job descriptions, and the development of policies and procedures. Several issues must be addressed during this essential task:
