    Situation Analysis (SITEMP).
  11. Which template is associated with Predictive Analysis?
    Event Template (EVENTEMP).
  12. What are the four targeting products within the EVENTEMP?
    • High Payoff Target List (HPTL)
    • Target Synchronization Matrix (TSM)
    • Target Selection Standards (TSS)
    • Attack Guidance Matrix (AGM)
  13. True or False.
    PMESII-PT, METT-TC, ASCOPE, and CARVER can all be within the EVENTEMP?
  14. What targeting product is criteria applied to enemy activity and used in deciding whether the activity is a target?
    Target Selection Standard (TSS).
  15. What targeting product is a matrix, approved by the commander, which addresses which targets will be attacked, how, when, and the desired effects?
    Attack Guidance Matrix (AGM).
  16. Which function determines accurate, identifiable, and timely requirements for collection systems?
  17. Detect function must conduct _______ and __________ of each target nomination.
    Vetting, Validation.
  18. What is a part of target development that assesses the accuracy of the supporting intelligence to targeting?
  19. What is a part of target development that ensures all vetted targets meet the objectives and cirteria outlined in the commander's guidance and ensures compliance with the law of war and rules of engagement?
  20. Which function occurs during the execution of the plan?
  21. Which function of the targeting process executes the target attack guidance and supports the commander's battle plan once the HPT has been located and identified?
  22. Target attack decisions fall into what two categories?
    Tactical and Technical decisions.
  23. Which decision determines time of attack, the desired effect, weapon system being used, and the potential for collateral damage of collateral effects?
    Tactical Decision.
  24. Which decision describes the number and type of munitions, unit to conduct attack, and response time of the attacking unit?
    Technical Decision.
  25. What are the three type of Combat Assessments in the Assess function?
    • Battle Damage Assessment
    • Munitions Effectivenes Assessment
    • Reattack or Future Targeting
  26. The determination of the effectiveness of force employment during military operations is known as what type of assessment? 
    Combat Assessment.
  27. Which assessment includes:

    Known or estimated threat unit strength
    Degraded or destroyed weapon systems
    Known captured, wounded, or killed personnel
    Battle Damage Assessment.
  28. What are the three components of BDA?
    • Physical Damage
    • Functional Damage
    • Target System Assessment
  29. Which component of BDA is the quantitative extent of physical damage through munition blast, fragmentation, and/or fire damage effects to a target?
    Physical Damage.
  30. Which component of BDA estimates the effect of attack on the target to perform its intended mission compared to the operational objective established against the target?
    Functional Damage Assessment.
  31. Which component of BDA is a broad assessment of the overall impact and effectiveness of all types of attack against an entire target systems capability?
    Target Systems Assessment.
  32. Which assessment is an assessment of the military force in terms of the weapon systems and munition effectiveness?
    Munitions Effectiveness Assessment.
  33. Which measure is criteria for measuring task perfomance or accomplishment?
    Measures of Performance (MOP).
  34. Which measure is used to assess changes in system behavior, capability, or the operational environment?
    Measures of Effectiveness (MOE).
  35. What are the two measurement types that the assessment process use to evaluate progress toward task accomplishment, effects creation, and objectives achievement?
    • Measures of Performance (MOP)
    • Measures of Effectiveness (MOE)
  36. Under which measure do we ask "Are we doing things right?
    Measures of Performance (MOP)
  37. Under which measure do we ask "Are we doing the right things"?
    Measures of Effectiveness (MOE).
  38. Which is the most difficult function within the Army targeting methodology?
    Assess Function.
