Proficiency testing for imaging and audio enhancement: guidelines for evaluation
Proficiency tests in the forensic sciences are vital in the accreditation and quality assurance process. Most commercially available proficiency testing is available for examiners in the traditional forensic disciplines, such as latent prints, drug analysis, DNA, questioned documents, etc. Each of these disciplines is identification based. There are other forensic disciplines, however, where the output of the examination is not an identification of a person or substance. Two such disciplines are audio enhancement and video/image enhancement.
