Students Busted in SAT Cheating Scandal

Check out this story from ABC News.

Six high school students in New York state – including one female – paid a male college student about $2K to take their SAT for them.

The students were caught when officials noticed big disparities between each student’s SAT score and their GPA. That point caught my eye. Before FAIRGRADE was passed in 2009, our FAIRGRADE analysis demonstrated that while FCPS students had some of the best SAT scores in the nation, their GPAs were not demonstrating the same achievement. That point helped us demonstrate the need for grading policy reform. Looks like SAT and GPA disparities tell lots of stories!

It’s sad these New York students resorted to cheating. They should have put their money towards SAT prep courses instead. According to this story, the students are facing criminal actions for their decision to cheat.
