SAT officials testify at NY cheating hearing

SAT officials testify at NY state Senate hearing examining cheating scandal By The Associated Press

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) ' There are steps officials can take to prevent SAT cheating scandals.

That's the contention of Bob Schaeffer of FairTest, a longtime standardized testing critic. He's among those testifying Tuesday at a New York state Senate hearing on Long Island.

Sen. Kenneth LaValle scheduled the hearing at Farmingdale College after seven current or former students at Great Neck North High School were arrested last month. Authorities said six of the students had a seventh to take their exams. More arrests are expected.

LaValle questioned test security after it was revealed the impersonator allegedly posed as a female during one of the tests.

In prepared remarks, Schaeffer says photos of all students should be taken.

Also testifying are Kurt M. Landgraf, of Princeton, N.J.-based Educational Testing Service, and Gaston Caperton, president of The College Board.
