Officials in Ariz. Seek Probe of Suspected Cheating
Arizona education officials last week asked the state attorney general's office to investigate possible cheating at seven schools where officials say some students' answers on standardized tests were erased and changed to the correct answers at a higher-than-normal rate.
The state education department invalidated a number of 2014 tests at the schools because of answers being changed.
Schools Superintendent Diane Douglas said in a letter to the attorney general's office that the department has not concluded that any particular student, teacher, or administrator was responsible for the changes.
