SAT officials to testify at NY cheating hearing

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

FARMINGDALE, N.Y. (AP) ' A state Senate subcommittee is holding hearings on Long Island in the wake of an SAT cheating scandal.

Kurt M. Landgraf, president and CEO of Princeton, N.J.-based Educational Testing Service, and Gaston Caperton, president of The College Board, are among those who will testify Tuesday before the Senate's higher education committee.

Sen. Kenneth LaValle, the committee's chairman, announced 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 SAT exams for them.



Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice was invited to testify but declined. Her office is investigating cheating at other high schools and says it would be improper to comment until arrests are made.
