Recommended Posts

So far this is what we know about the states affected by the graphite lead issues. All states shown in red have confirmed cases, along with the states shown in gray.

Oh, I'm sure NCEES loves it when you guys start this stuff. How about if they forward all the calls to their office asking about this to you?

I'd be happy to field a call or too. Don't think the caller would feel any better after hanging up though. They may not like my answer to their query.

phew good thing that PA is in the clear

PA is never in the clear.

On the flip side, funny how a lot of states dumped PCS recently.

My sources said the problem originated in Wyoming, but now there is concern that it is more wide spread than originally thought. So now they have to run checks on all pencils issued in all states. You can send your pencils to me and I will deliver them to the appropriate personnel responsible for testing.

I also had one question I had to erase one question, wherein, the eraser almost tore the paper on one question and erasing would leave smidgen pencil mark which was difficult to remove. Is that what you guys are referring here?

No, but eraser marks count as double against you.

The issue at hand is they substituted no. 3 lead in place of the required no. 2

Ok, I am honestly having trouble determining whether this post is a hoax or real. Have they seriously had issues with the pencils used during the exam leading to grading problems? Has this been a problem in the past?

They're jerking your chain. Ironically, it could delay results because all of you will call or chat NCEES and they'll have to deal with this hoax instead of working to get out the results.

Right, because the people taking the calls/chats are the same people grading the exams

2 now. They fired the guy responsible for procuring exam pencils this morning. It was in an NCEES press release.

In '09 it caused widespread delays. The horror.
