Evaluation of intelligence product through critical analysis
Firstly, demonstrate the ability to critically analyze by evaluating an intelligence product or academic journal article. Identify a product that you think qualifies to be called an intelligent product. However, you are not to report or summarize on the intelligence product or journal article but instead to critically evaluate the author’s argument. Evaluate the author’s argument by analyzing the position, supporting evidence, reliability and credibility of the sources, and the logical reasoning. Description: Using a pre-approved unclassified intelligence product or an academic journal article, write a critical analysis of the author’s argument. Evaluate the evidence and sources.
Secondly, a successful paper will begin with an introduction that identifies the piece you are evaluating, a thesis statement (Your position about the work), and the steps you will use to prove your argument as to the evaluation of the article. In your thesis statement indicate your position on the issue (whether or not you think the author’s argument is sound). The body of the paper will include a very short summary of the article or intelligence product. The rest of the body will be a logical presentation of your position supported by evidence.
Be sure to explain your reasoning with properly cited and referenced evidence. There should be a summary conclusion that reflects on your argument and the implication to the field. While the article is one source you are citing, you will also need to use materials presented in the class or found within the virtual library that help in understanding how to make logical arguments, think critically, present bias, evaluate sources etc.
