Analytical Terms of Reference
Papers must incorporate the following analytical standards which are common
throughout the Intelligence Community. These standards equate to the content/subject knowledge, critical thinking, and writing conventions section of the grading rubric.

Terms of Estimative Probability. The narrative essay should be limited to the terms of estimative probability listed below. Please note, the terms and percentages are designed to provide students with a numerical range of probability and standardize submissions to allow for class comparisons.
(a) Highly Likely + 85% chance
(b) Probable 60-84% chance
(c) About Even 45-55% chance
(d) Possible 35-44% chance
(e) Unlikely 16-34% chance
(f) Highly Unlikely 0-15%
Objectivity: Analysis should be free of emotional content, give due regard to alternative perspectives and contrary reporting, and acknowledge developments that necessitate adjustments to analytic judgments.

Independent of Political Considerations: Assessments should not distort or alter with the intent of supporting or advocating a particular policy, political viewpoint, or audience.

Based on All Available Sources of Intelligence: Analysis should be informed by all relevant information that is available to the analytic element. Knowledge gaps must be identified.

Properly describes quality and reliability of underlying sources: Accurately characterize the information in the underlying sources and explain which information proved key to analytic judgments and why. Factors affecting the weighting that the analysts gives to available, relevant information, such as denial and deception, source access, source motivations and bias, or age and continued currency of information, or other factors affecting the quality and potential reliability of the information, should be included in the product.

Properly distinguished between underlying intelligence and analysts assumptions and judgments: Identify underlying causes and/or behavior of systems, people, organizations, states, or conditions. Assumptions comprise the foundational premises on which the information and logical argumentation build to reach analytic conclusions. Judgments are defined as logical inferences from the available information or the results of explicit tests of hypotheses. They comprise the conclusions of the analysts.

Uses logical argumentation. The presentation should facilitate clear understanding of the information and reasoning underlying analytic judgments. Key points should be effectively supported by information or, for more speculative warning by coherent reasoning. Language and syntax should convey meaning unambiguously.
