Intelligence scales are used to qualify pieces of information or assessments.

They communicate the degree of certainty or uncertainty.



The likelihood scale is a measure of how likely we believe something is to happen or be true based on the available information. We use a composite likelihood that factors in both how likely something is, and how strong the available evidence is.
