Pretend you are a police investigator. You will be assigned six case files, and each file will include an eyewitness lineup identification. Within each lineup, the eyewitness will have identified a face as a suspect, and this face will be highlighted with a red border. Beneath each lineup, you will see the eyewitness's written expression of certainty regarding their identification.
Police departments seek to close as many cases as possible, and your task will be to assign a priority to each case. Based on the eyewitnesses' testimony, you should give cases that represent the strongest evidence the highest priority and cases that represent the weakest evidence the lowest priority.
To view and assign cases, you will use a series of six buttons labeled Case A through Case F. To view a case, click that case's button. To assign a case a priority, click and drag that case onto a priority slot. Take as much time as you need to examine each case and to read each eyewitness's confidence statement before making your decisions. As you assign case priorities, you may continue to rearrange case files among priority slots by dragging and dropping case files onto each other to swap their positions until you are satisfied.
