    • Evaluation Guides that describe critical tasks to be completed, and provides evaluators with information on what they should see, space to record their observations, and questions to address after the exercise as a first step analysis process

  • Performs execution analysis to identify problems, resolutions, exercise weaknesses, operating procedure comprehensiveness, participant skills required, and role clarifications

  • Produces after action documentation (who participated, extent exercise objectives were achieved, lessons learned, problems, resolutions, and areas for improvements)
