ABC Survey Request

Source: Shawn K. West, MSFS, ABC President

As part of our commitment to bring you quality and relevant exams, the American Board of Criminalists (ABC) needs your help to determine if the knowledge and skills that we are testing are still applicable to your job! Below is a link to a survey that will ask you a series of questions about how frequently a forensic scientist with one year of experience does a task and how important that task is.‚ÄčThe survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete and will be used to reassess the blueprint of the Foundational Knowledge Examination. 

The survey will list a series of tasks, such as "maintain chain of custody." Ask yourself, "How important is it for a forensic scientist with one year of experience to maintain chain of custody? How frequently does a forensic scientist with one year of experience have to maintain chain of custody?" As you go through the survey, please answer the questions as they pertain to a forensic scientist with one year of experience that works in your lab, not necessarily how they pertain to *you* at your current experience level.
 

If you have questions about the survey, please contact Audra Yovanovich at examchair@criminalistics.com. Thank you for your support of ABC and we look forward to seeing your responses!
