The firm that oversees registrations for the SAT college-entrance exam is boosting security around the world following test-stealing and other cheating in recent years.

The College Board said it's reducing the number of international testing dates from six to four for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 school years. It says the move will reduce opportunities for test content to be stolen. It also is taking steps to prevent past cheaters from retaking tests and will alert law-enforcement agencies in the United States and abroad of companies and people it suspects of illegally obtaining test content.

Another planned change includes an increase in audits of test centers worldwide.
