When she received her notification of not passing, she should have also
received a listing of all the tissues and stains, with series of numbers
after each one. These numbers the "errors" listed on pages 6, 7 and 8 of the
practical booklet she received months ago, that listed what stains and
tissues she was to send in.

For example, if the tissue results were:
Fallopian Tube, H&E    - 203, 206, 412
This would mean - on an H&E of the fallopian tube:
203 = nuclear stain not crisp
206 = cytoplasmic differentiation slightly deficient
412 = knife lines

If she did not save her practical booklet, she can download the booklet from
the ASCP Board of Registry webpage:

Click on either HT or HTL
Then click on Practical Exam Instructions - this booklet is for the 2005
practical tissue list, but "errors" are the same as 2004.

Can anyone tell me of a certainty whether or not explanations are given on
the written notification of a failed practical?  It was my understanding
that it is included with your results, but I have a candidate who says there
isn't any explanation on hers.
Thanks in advance
