The C.I.A is the leading protection agency along side the military around
the world. These females and males risk their lives every moment of the
day in many different scenarios. They are uprooted from their families at
any moment with out any notice or time for preparation. When called to
duty their whereabouts are confidential, not even their families will know
their location. If their cover is blown in any manner, death is the result.
What would we do without them?
• Agents across the world collect this information while
on secret missions.
• The information is updated every month, by the
technology department of the C.I.A, just to keep
civilians in tune with what is going on in the world.
3 NEW FACTS
• 1. Females can only volunteer for military service at the
age of 17, while males can enlist at the age of 17.
• 2. D.o.D is eliminating prohibitions restricting women
from assignments in units smaller than brigades or near
• 3. The C.I.A has many opportunities for scholarships,
and internships. They strive on knowledge.

IDEAS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH
How can the CIA improve
CIA agents who undergo role
play training will collect more
verifiable information and be
less likely to be uncovered.
If CIA agents go through
role play training, they will
provide the CIA with longer
lasting careers (will not be
quasi-experimental - Take new CIA applicants and randomly divide them into two groups.
One group receives standard manual training and tests. One group receives standard
manual training and role-play training. Then both groups are placed in the field and are
tracked over time for 15 years. At the end of each year, evaluations will include whose
“cover” was lost. Those who lose their cover will be compared by training method. These
results will be tracked and compared to the previous lost cover statistics. Those agents
losing their cover prior to the role-playing training will be the control group. The
dependent variable will be how long “cover” is kept. Independent variable will be whether
the applicants received role-play training or not.
Who is within the
population of interest
Population of interest would be all CIA applicants accepted into
the CIA. The sample would be all accepted applicants during a
year of heavy recruiting.
Statistical analyses could correlate analyses
between training type and longevity of cover.
One way Analysis of variance could be conducted
using the training type as the Independent Variable
and Longevity of Cover as the Dependent Variable.
