Traffic Forecasting Training

Florida Department of Transportation - Transportation Data Analytics Office

Traffic analysts at the Florida Department of Transportation help plan for the maintenance and future construction of state roadway systems. The FDOT central office needed to create a more standardized process for traffic forecasting by implementing a common training course across all Florida districts. CIMES carried out a four-month research project using techniques that included a job task analysis, focus groups, office observations, and in-depth interviews. This process culminated in the generation of a preliminary competency model that was validated by a team of traffic analyst experts. Twelve cases at varying degrees of difficulty and in various project types were identified to be part of a scenario-based training approach. Tasks, knowledge, procedures, skills, tools, and other critical elements were identified for each case. The new training requires learners to perform all the tasks needed to produce a traffic forecast report for each case

CIMES created a centralized, web-based resource center, the Florida Tobacco Control Clearinghouse, and related resources to support the division’s information management and communication needs.
