• NC school says 'human error' to blame for missing ACT scores

    Updated:

    SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. - Rising seniors at a North Carolina high school do not have their ACT test scores because their answer sheets were never submitted.

    News outlets report more than 400 students at Pinecrest High School were notified Tuesday that they were affected. School leaders say the missing scores are due to "human error," and appropriate personnel action has been taken.

    The school says it plans to administer the test again in the fall at no cost to the students. All juniors took the ACT on Feb. 20 and March 13.

    Pinecrest High School Spokesperson Catherine Murphy says the school learned the tests weren't submitted when ACT officials said they hadn't received the answer sheets.
