This article describes the development and application of a model framework that helps scientists design effective, efficient, and robust case-examination strategies. The Case Assessment and Interpretation (CAI) model, founded on Bayesian thinking, provides clarity on the role of forensic scientists within the criminal justice process, encourages consistency of approach, and helps direct research effort.
