Allegations of cheating on standardized tests have led three members of the Washington, D.C., Council to propose a measure that would make such acts illegal. Teacher or principals found guilty of cheating would have their professional licenses revoked and could face fines. Under the bill, it would be illegal for educators to change students' answers on tests, look at test questions before they are given to students, help students arrive at the right answer, have test materials at certain times or leave test materials unattended.
