c. This standard verb list for task titles adhere to the following criteria:
(1) Verbs on the standard verb list must be useable across several areas of tasks; that is, they are not unique to a particular task area or MOS specialty. For example, "excavate" is a unique collective task title verb in the engineering area, and "x-ray" is an MOS-specific individual task title verb in the medical area. Neither of these verbs are on the standard verb list, but may be used for unique or MOS-specific task titles, respectively.
(2) Verbs must be transitive, and must correlate to an observable action so as to create measurable tasks. For example, "perform" is an observable action verb, but "participate" is not observable or measurable.
(3) Verbs must indicate a task or action to be trained, not a function. For example, "oversee" is a function of a position, not a task to be trained.
(4) Verbs need to describe an action performed by personnel, not equipment.
(5) Related verbs on the approved list must not be defined the same or so closely that they become easily interchangeable.
(6) Verbs must provide or promote clarity without being vague. For example, "use" does not describe a clear action.
(7) Verbs must allow analysts, trainers, and Soldiers to understand the scope of the task title.
(8) Standard verbs help prevent duplication and promote application of sound training principles. The verbs in this list may be used, if appropriate, for task performance steps.
d. The verbs in this appendix are cross-referenced with other approved verbs to provide the user with related verbs for task titles. The verbs in this list may be used, if appropriate, for task performance steps.
e. The standard verb list identifies appropriate verbs for task titles according to the type of task (individual or collective), and the level of physical or cognitive performance required. These verb levels serve as guidelines, but there may be exceptions based on skill levels.
f. The five psychomotor levels are from the work of R.H. Dave, 1970. The six cognitive levels are from B. Bloom, 1956.
g. The verbs in this appendix are cross-referenced with other approved verbs to provide the user with synonyms for use in task titles. Synonyms on the approved verb list have been reviewed to eliminate words that are defined the same or so closely that they become easily interchangeable.
