#1 Task Definition

*Define the information problem.
*What type of information do you need?


The goal of Task Definition is to determine the information problem to be solved, reformulate a complete statement of the task, pick out keywords embedded in a question, ask a good question, and understand and follow printed and/or oral directions.
