- Rolling Fingerprints - Demo / Modeling
Some of “Recording for Ten-Print Submission” has been sectioned off to help you Model proper ten card fingerprinting. You can use all sections which are approximately 8 minutes long or use sections as desired if you have a time constraint.
If you have no knowledge or little applicable knowledge of ten card fingerprinting, I advise you to use these videos for assistance.
The videos are great to use if you want to use a step by step procedural method. Have your students perform each step after each section of the video has played. You should be observing the students and making appropriate corrections as needed.
If you are more knowledgeable, you can perform each step after the videos have played.
- Fingerprint Card [ Watch Video ] [ Download Original Video ] The video will explain how the fingerprint card is used and will be step 1in modeling.
- Ink [ Watch Video ] [ Download Original Video ] The video describes the inking process and will be step 2 in modeling.
- Preparing to Print [ Watch Video ] [ Download Original Video ] The video will demonstrate what to do to prepare to print and will be step 3 in modeling.
- Printing [ Watch Video ] [ Download Original Video ] The video will demonstrate how to print using a rolling slab however the same procedures are used using a porelon pad except there is no need to roll ink. This will be step 4 in modeling.
- Assessment Types:
- Journals, Demonstrations, Observations,
Student will demonstrate their understanding of the procedure used to perform Inked Prints and classify them using the "Henry System". Teacher will observe students work and give positive feedback. Students will present work samples and receive feedback to improve and develop their skill levels.
Student will answer question about the excerise in the journals or notebooks.
1. What important facts did you learn from this excerise?
2. How could you improve your fingerprint skills?
