Abstract

Improving reasoning in intelligence analysis is of vital national importance. The Trackable Reasoning and Analysis for Crowdsourcing and Evaluation (TRACE) Project takes a user-centered design approach combined with rigorous experimentation to ascertain effective structured techniques to support high-quality reasoning. Results suggest light structure is more effective than a rigid structure.
