Proficiency Tests

Each forensic practitioner will receive a test composed of randomly selected unknown and/or known proficiency testing items, with the correct answers being specific to each test.  Participants will be unable to gain information regarding the answers to their test through discussions with others participating in the same testing cycle, or with those administering the test.  These blind elements are incorporated into the design of our tests to reduce the effects of bias on testing results. Forensic Assurance proficiency tests are declared (the participant knows that they are taking a test).

Conclusions will be submitted to Forensic Assurance using our secure online answer sheet.  Answers are to be submitted no later than the Answer Submission Deadline.

The Report of Proficiency Testing Results will be provided to the Buyer approximately 30 days after the Answer Submission Deadline, and the Statistics Report will be provided to the Buyer approximately 60 days after the Answer Submission Deadline.  These reports will be sent via email unless otherwise requested by the Buyer.
