Instructor: Alice White

This webinar will review selected error rate studies, including PCAST’s use of confidence intervals to estimate the range within which actual error rates could fall for specific studies. Error rates may be meaningful for the courts assessing general reliability of friction ridge examinations, but they are not terribly helpful when assessing errors in casework.

From the discussion on error rates, Alice will walk attendees through the many human factors that can contribute to errors. Once the landscape of pitfalls has been illuminated, Alice will review the checks and balances within a quality management system that enhance analyst performance and reduce error rates even lower.

Ultimately this webinar should prepare attendees for testimony issues related to error rates and prompt agencies to consider a more nuanced human factors approach to dealing with mistakes and errors.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The attendee will be able to explain the relationship between the following: population, parameter, sample, and statistic.
  • The attendee will be able to define false positive and false negative in relation to latent print errors.
  • The attendee will be able to describe a false positive error rate and false negative error rate in relation to latent print errors.
  • The attendee will be able to calculate basic error rates.
  • The attendee will be able to explain the function of a confidence interval.
  • The attendee will be able to identify analyst actions that can contribute to an error.
  • The attendee will be able to identify analyst conditions that can contribute to an error.
  • The attendee will be able to identify supervisory issues that can contribute to an error.
  • The attendee will be able to identify organizational issues that can contribute to an error.
