In forensic science, questioned document examination (QDE) is the examination of documents potentially disputed in a court of law. Its primary purpose is to provide evidence about a suspicious or questionable document using scientific processes and methods.
Documents feature prominently in all manner of business and personal affairs. Any type of document may become disputed in an investigation or litigation. For example, a questioned document may be a sheet of paper bearing handwriting or mechanically-produced text such as a ransom note, a forged cheque, or a business contract.
An examiner "makes scientific examinations, comparisons, and analyses of documents to:
establish genuineness or non-genuineness, or to expose forgery, or to reveal alterations, additions or deletions;
identify or eliminate persons as the source of handwriting;
identify or eliminate the source of typewriting or other impression, marks, or relative evidence; and
write reports or give testimony, when needed, to aid the users of the examiner's services in understanding the examiner's findings."
The practice test will help prepare for forensic questioned document examination.
