Job-Aid Design Project

This project was completed for IDD620, Universal Design and Development, Fall 2017.  Click on the icon to read the PDF:

What is a job aid?  Job aids are devices or tools (such as instruction cards, memory joggers, wall charts) that allows an individual to quickly access the information he or she needs to perform a task.

Job aids can be as small as a template on a camera or as large as a book. Generally, job aids fall within the following categories:

  • Checklists – listings of items to be considered when planning or evaluating: order is not important.
  • Cookbooks – step-by-step lists where order of steps is important.
  • Decision guides – charts, tables, or flowcharts with options and criteria listed to guide choices in decision making.
  • Forms and worksheets – formats with blanks to be filled in to use where responses must be documented or saved for future referenced.
  • Reference sources – listings such as a parts catalog that contains detailed information such as product and price data.

For this project, we designed and developed cookbook job aids for UAB teaching faculty, following a design template and utilizing a learner analysis.
