Flashcards in CTT Deck (52):
1

Data

The raw inputs. 1s and 0s. Raw signals.

2

Information

The data in a usable form. 1s and 0s in a spreadsheet with columns and rows.

3

Intelligence

Information that has been interpreted with a focus on the significance of the information.

4

What are the phases of the intelligence cycle?

Planning and Direction

Collection

Processing and Exploitation

Production

Dissemination

Utilization

5

Describe Planning and Direction

In this phase the mission and commander's intent is provided.

6

Collection

in this phase what you need to know to produce the commanders uncertainty regarding the mission is identified and codified into INR's and PIR's a collection plan is formulated an executed. What is collected is the raw data.

7

Processing and Exploitation

in this phase collect data is processed and converted into a usable form i.e. intelligence

8

Production

in this phase of the Intel cycle information is converted into intelligence. The significance of the information in light of the mission is determined and Darius intelligence products are produced in order to convey that finished intelligence to consumers

9

Dissemination

in this phase finished intelligence products are disseminated to consumers.

10

Utilization

in this phase intelligence products are utilized in support of contacting operations. This yours Asian will produce feedback feedback into the first phase of the Intel cycle as the cycle repeats for new missions on the faces of planning for missions.

11

22

describe the divergent thinking method random analogy

simply pick a random object and ask how is this problem like this object.

23

describe the divergent thinking method mind mapping

mind maps take the whole of an idea and arrange a series of related subcomponents around if I can be further broken down

24

describe divergent thinking about that alternative features

involves establishing the main question or problem and then brainstorming about forces and factors affecting the issue also involves building for future scenarios based on various extreme of drivers, priced from forces

25

describe divergent thinking method key assumptions check

A systematic effort to make explicit him question the working assumptions that Guide and analyst interpretation of evidence and reasoning about a particular problem

26

describe critical thinking

an unnatural skilled that anyone can learn but requires practice good critical thinking skills given all of us the ability to think more clearly and see things were the way they are

27

describe the analytical process

analyze – all about gathering bits of information and determining their significance
synthesize – concerned with the pieces of information in the synthesize step you pick the pieces together discerning Patters etc.
exclamation Dash make predictions about the likelihood of future possibilities the goal is not to definitively predict the future but to reduce uncertainty about it

28

describe blooms Texon to me

remember – ability to recall facts understand – ability to interpret information apply Dash make use of knowledge in particular situations in life – breaking information into parts discerning how parts really; grasping the whole evaluate – Xsport and vend judgments create – combining information in a new way, producing products

46

describe the process of analyzing arguments using logic

identify the conclusion – what are they saying identify the premises – why are they saying determine the D – is the argument presented in a ballot form? Do you true promises grantee a true conclusion? Determine soundness – are the premises and therefore the conclusions true?
