In September, a college student was arrested and charged with taking the SAT for six other students. Now, the investigation includes 35 students in five schools, and the ACT, reports the New York Times:
It has widened to more than 35 people from five schools, two public and three private, said a person briefed on the inquiry, who asked not to be named because the investigation is continuing. Nassau officials had previously indicated that they were investigating three other schools and at least one other suspected test-taker.
“We are still gathering evidence to determine the number of students who will be arrested,” Mr. Byrne said. “Additional arrests will include both those who paid others to take the test for them and those who created fake IDs and were paid to take the test for others.”
The College Board has hired a former FBI director, Louis J. Freeh, to investigate the security issues with the SAT.
