Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Assignment
What’s Your Impression?
This assignment will give you the opportunity to create and evaluate your own impression evidence. As you have read in your textbook, pattern evidence is, for the most part, examined by the naked eye. Select one of the following learning activities on which to base this assignment.
- Create two impression patterns of your choice. This can include an imprint and/or indentation pattern. Take photos of the impressions you have created. For example, this can be foot impressions, tire impressions, or fingerprints left in mud, soil, or snow.
Document the creation of your pattern evidence, what type of individualized pattern you have created, and how you would collect and preserve this evidence. What information can be gleaned from this type of evidence? Include your photos with your Word document.
- Review the photos of impression evidence (below), and discuss what type of individualized pattern you see and how you would collect and preserve this evidence. What information can be gleaned from this type of evidence?
