NY prosecutor: Better SAT exam security is needed

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) - A New York prosecutor who charged seven teenagers in an SAT cheating scandal tells The Associated Press more can be done to secure the tests.
Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice says photographs should be taken of every person taking the exam. She also says colleges should be notified when students are caught cheating on the SAT. That is currently not done.
Six current or former Great Neck North High School students allegedly paid a college student to take the SAT for them.
The college student, Sam Eshaghoff, is a 2010 Great Neck North graduate. He spent his freshman year at the University of Michigan before transferring to Emory University in Atlanta.
Rice says more arrests are possible.
Officials at the company that administers the SATs believe cheating is not widespread.
