Abstract:

Civilian intelligence analysts are selected for their jobs largely on the basis of academic record and prior work history. Virtually all are college graduates, many with graduate training and degrees, and many are former uniformed military personnel. This paper describes a recent investigation into the feasibility of improving the process of selection of civilian intelligence analysts, through adding the use of tests of the aptitudes and skills required in the job.
