After successfully completing this course, you will be able to:

CO-1 Describe the significance of The Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 and Executive Orders surrounding the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of 9.11.

CO-2 Analyze threats against the United States from nation states, non-state actors, and transnational groups.

CO-3 Compare and contrast the members, their roles, and mission of the Intelligence Community including Fusion Centers.

CO-4 Assess the capabilities and limitations of US intelligence disciplines.

Each assignment will be evaluated by the instructor using a rubric scoring guide and comments inserted into the Word document. Forum grades will be determined using a rubric scoring guide. Additionally, comments may be given informally within the forum or in more detail within the forum grader tool.

Forum discussions – One initial post by Thursday; two follow-up collaboration posts to classmates by Sunday. Specific questions found in the Discussion section of the classroom. I will routinely ask questions regarding your discussion posts. Answering my questions will be part of your grade. This keeps the discussions lively and helps you dig deeper into the topic at hand. Again, there is a late penalty for discussions not being posted on time.

Progress assignments – There will be two 4-6 page essays within the course. Specific instructions can be found in the Assignments section of the classroom.
