AbstractThe purpose of this study was to identify the specific tasks performed and not performed by extension workers in the district of Amman, Jordan in 1990, to determine the frequency with which these tasks were performed, to gather perceptions of tasks and task groups and to identify the frequency of the obstacles encountered. Analysis of task performance revealed the majority of tasks performed on a frequent basis were implementation tasks. Extension workers also ranked the implementation group as the most important group of tasks. Extension workers spent the least amount of time on tasks in the areas of planning and results. The most frequently occurring obstacles identified by extension workers were the lack of appropriate technology, lack of transportation and lack of teaching and communication equipment. Study results indicated a need for emphasis on teaching media and for broader participation of extension workers on planning and evaluation of results. Pre- and in-service training programs were recommended, as was the establishment of a media division.
