Course Overview: This course introduces analysts to the process of thinking in a logical and structured manner about a problem or issue – but with a specific client in mind; deciding on an analytic approach; selecting and weighing evidence; and presenting compelling analytic conclusions. Students will practice crafting logical arguments, evaluating data, and self-reviewing. They also learn to organize and communicate findings for maximum effectiveness and usability.

This course provides students with an opportunity to explore the following topics and techniques:

• The AIMS method for conceptualizing an analytic product.

• The Analytic Spectrum, which progresses from descriptive to explanatory to evaluative to estimative analysis.

• The use of Argument Maps to assess logical flow.

• The authenticity, reliability, and credibility method for evaluating sources and data.

• The use of the Inverted Triangle, Argument Maps, Mind Maps, or Venn Diagrams for conceptualizing and constructing your draft.

• The Critical Thinker’s Checklist for final review and self-editing.
