Course title
Essentials of forensic interpretation
This online course covers the essentials of forensic interpretation applied to the solution of inferential problems in forensic science and in the administration of justice. It is designed to make practitioners at ease with a probabilistic approach to the evaluation and interpretation of forensic findings. The content focuses on the so-called likelihood ratio, a measure that is supported by the European Network of Forensic Science Institutes and the UK’s Association of Forensic Science Providers due to its qualities such as coherency and transparency. The course is based on research that has been described as providing the essential building blocks for the proper assessment, understanding and communication of findings in the NAS report “Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward”.
