A security firm run by former FBI Director Louis Freeh has been retained to review security on standardized-testing procedures following an SAT cheating scandal in New York, the president of the College Board announced last week.

Officials from the College Board and the Educational Testing Service, which administers the college-entrance exam on behalf of the Princeton, N.J.-based College Board, made the announcement at a New York legislative hearing. The Nassau County district attorney filed criminal charges in one SAT cheating case in that state.

College Board President Gaston Caperton insisted that impostors taking SATs for other students is rare. He said security changes being considered include a review of what is considered acceptable identification and possibly using digital photography at testing sites. He did not provide a timetable for when Mr. Freeh’s firm would make recommendations.
