Can someone tell me the exact charges the test-takers and the students that paid them are accused of? I have read a number of articles but they have not stated the legal charge.

Thanks in advance.

A simple internet search will provide you with the information you need.

But I guess that is like saying to the accused that studying for an exam will get you good grades.

Why look up your own info or take your own test? A true indication of the failure of the Long Island School systems.

eh, people have been cheating on these tests for years. It's only recently that the colleges and testing agencies are starting to catch up to those breaking the rules.

Yeah but also important to note is the culture of scandalous behavior in America...

Sports?
Music?
Financial Markets?
bureaucratic corruption across almost all levels?
food production?
marketing?
etc etc etc

this is just our culture..it is cutthroat out there and we got all kinds of sorry people who are just unhappy with life barely making it by -

so...if you can pay a one time fee of a $1000 to more or less get a free pass to any school you want? in a nation where it doesn't matter what you have a degree in just that you got it and oh yeah where is it from because that is most important...

then sure why not?

It's a bad thing - permitting cheating of any sort.
For years, we have had official instructions to not trust standardized test results from China (GRE, in particular) due to wide-spread cheating, permeating their system completely. In general, US students have higher ethics standards based on my observations. I hope it stays that way.

But a couple of things puzzle me in this case:

1) Where did the "kids in need" get the money to pay for services? No small money for HS children. Possible parents involvement?

2) The cheaters (the ones taking the exams) do not appear to be geniuses. One of them ended up at Stony Brook and I looked up his record - average at best. I guess, the cheaters are more entrepreneurial than anything... So, why pay kids who cannot pull top scores?

3) Sentences like 4y of jail were mentioned in the media. Punishment and better security - yes, but jail? Really? Considering how many big-time crooks (Wall Street comes to mind) never went to jail... Seems like over-reaction. Ethics is the hardest to teach, and easiest to slip away; it all starts at home.

Wow, pretty judgmental ya think?

The articles I have read so far have been limited to the following:
"charged with accepting money to take the test for someone else, and a second student who is charged as a youthful offender on charges that he paid someone to take the test"

I did not think those are the exact charges hence my post to CD.
