Notice of Manufacturer Defect – Form H1
We determined that the most recently produced batches of the Form H1 (also commonly referred to as the “Penn State Half”, or “Half Sheets”) purchased from the UH Bookstore have been misprinted by the manufacturer. This misprint causes our scanners to read the exams inaccurately. Multiple questions end up being processed as “BLANK” identifying that the machine believes no answer was selected for that particular question, when in fact there was an answer penciled in.
The batch of Form H1 sheets with the manufacturer defect on them have “08/23” printed on them near the bottom, left corner. Other older versions of the Form H1 from the same manufacturer, are not compromised and may continue to be used. Attached is a photo of different versions of the Form H1 we have come across. The sheet on the very bottom of the pile with “08/23” circled is an example of the defective sheet.
While we could accept exams with the “08/23” marking and attempt to process them, the scores will not be accurate and we will recommend the instructor manually grade those.
If you have the Form H1 sheets identified as defective (includes “08/23” on the bottom left corner), please give all defective sheets back to the individual who purchased them from the UH Bookstore. That individual who purchased the pack from the bookstore may take the defective sheets back and exchange them for the 4521 General Purpose NCS Forms.
If you have any questions regarding the exchange process, please contact the UH Bookstore at email@example.com or (808) 956-4317.
