Graphite Issues Map

Recommended Posts

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

And when you call customer service and want to escalate because you want to talk with someone who really knows the truth, who would they send you to? Someone who works with the exams. And what would that person normally be working on? The results. QED.......

incorrect. They will send you to someone slightly more informed, but equally detached from the grading process

I'm pretty sure that NCEES has built in a week of float in their grading process just to deal with whatever bullshit engineerboards.com members throw out there every exam cycle.

This stuff is exponentially more amusing 6 months later, something about a passing score must have made me get the joke a little better.

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.

Fixt

If you don't know what I mean. Ya ain't passing!

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.[/quote

That's a big 10-4 red ranger!

I taked to NCEES they said " Many thousands of people have used the pencils we have gotten from the same company for many years without trouble. Any form of erasing can cause smudges, and for the most part, the pencils we use work perfectly fine. Although it brings a very important point about why we require that everyone use the same pencil/eraser.As for the exam itself, erasures rarely make it difficult for the digital computer system to score. We spot check many answer sheets and even with large smudges on the paper, the computer is able to pick out the answer you selected. We have actually NEVER found a mistake by the computer scoring." This is perfect response to Ken 3.0's response of " No, but eraser marks count as double against you.", basically we should be good.

Nope. same answer I got and thats why response is in quote. I got that respone within 10 minutes. Basically smudged answer will be verifed against intended answer. Response says intended answer takes precedence over other marking/s.

I thought the issue was with the graphite, not the erasers.

People, let's try to take things a little more seriously. There's no way The release of any map would be authorized.
