Subject: [lpi-examdev] LPIC-3 Job Task Analysis has started
To: lpi-examdev at lpi.org
The JTA software has finally been published with the LPIC-3 job tasks for
everyone to help vote on.
What is the purpose of the Job Task Analysis (JTA) survey?
The JTA survey is being performed so that LPI can determine how much
coverage is required for each objective on the LPIC-3 exams. The tasks
that are being reviewed will provide the psychometrician with the data
that is needed to make this determination (these are the weights that
you have seen on the LPIC-1 and LPIC-2 exams).
For each job task, you will be asked to comment on:
- how often the specific task is performed (or understanding of
a concept is required)
- how important it is to know this task or concept
The JTA survey should be taken by anyone that is in this role in the
profession or has knowledge of the tasks involved in this role; such
as managers and project planners.
Bonus for Linux Professionals Helping with the JTA
As an incentive for people to help with the JTA survey, we will
randomly award one (1) of one hundred (100) LPIC-3 exam vouchers to
Linux professionals that complete the entire LPIC-3 JTA (currently,
there are 365 tasks in the survey).
These vouchers will be usable at any exam lab the LPI holds at various
worldwide events such as LinuxWorld, IT360, and other regional events.
Sorry, we cannot make these vouchers valid at the computer-based testing
centres. If you cannot attend any LPI exam labs, you can transfer the
voucher to another LPI candidate and they are valid until Dec 31, 2008.
We anticipate that 300-400 Linux professionals will participate in this
The eligibility period for this draw ends on December 9th, 2006.
The Minimally Qualified Candidate (MQC)
The MQC is a description of the Linux professional that would be
able to pass the LPIC-3 exams. This description should be read before
starting the survey.
The full description is at:
The Location of the JTA
The JTA is available at: https://www.lpi.org/caf/Xamdev/jta
You will need to provide your LPI username and password. This is so
that we may track your progress through the task list. It also means
that you do not have to finish the JTA survey in one pass. Just return
when you are able and you will only have to review the tasks that you
have not seen already.
Using your username and password also lets us find you if you are one
of the Linux professionals awards the LPIC-3 exam voucher (see above).
Regards and happy surveying,
