SAT Cheating Scandal
WSIL - There are new arrests Tuesday in an SAT cheating scandal in New York suburbs that may lead to changes in the way every high school student in the country takes the nation's most widely used college admission test.
Four graduates of Long Island high schools are charged with posing as current students and taking the SAT for them. The current students are charged with paying as much as $3,600 to the alleged impostors.
Tuesday's arrests follow several others a couple months ago that prompted The College Board, the organization that administers the test, to review test security.
All SAT takers could soon have to show certain kinds of ID or have a digital photo taken on exam day. The Board has also hired former FBI Director Louis Freeh to review the test's security procedures.
