Telling for sure whether a receptacle is half switched requires a whole page of text to describe.

Sometimes only some of the receptacles in the room may be half switched. A duplex receptacle on which the metal piece between the screws is not broken off is not half switched but could be completely switched.

Half switched receptacles usually have an odd number of wires (counting all colors) in the box and usually one wire is red.

Two black wires on one side and two white wires on the other side usually signify that power continues from here to another receptacle. The receptacle being examined is not half switched.
