Digital forensics experts often extract data from computers and mobile phones that may contain evidence of a crime. Now, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) will conduct the first large-scale study to measure how well those experts do their job. But rather than testing the proficiency of individual experts, the study aims to measure the performance of the digital forensics community overall.

Seems like an interesting approach -- but there seems to be some risk for bias towards FAs with time spare.  Well, at least two hours of it, but still ...

I hope the final report will be interesting.

Basically it is the usual online survey, how large will be the scale only depends on participation, and it doesn't really help (seemingly) the disclaimer when you click on the link:
