SAT to Require Photo Uploads

If you thought the formalities involved in standardized testing were annoying before, wait until this goes into effect. After a massive cheating scandal that involved 20 teenagers on Long Island using fake IDs to take others’ tests, the SAT and ACT will require test takers to upload photos that will be checked against the student’s photo ID at the testing site. Students will also have to list their high school so that schools can keep better tabs on test takers. The new rules apply nationwide and will go into effect this fall.
