    CAHSEE Cheating

    The California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) is an exam administered yearly to all high school students, except freshmen. The passing of the CAHSEE is one of AHS’s graduation requirements.

    Lately, there has been a rumor circulating about a photo of a CAHSEE question. A student in Bakersfield taking the CAHSEE had taken a picture of question #92 in the mathematics portion with his cell phone. The photo was posted on the social networking site Facebook, and an AHS sophomore student was “tagged” in the photo. Consequently, the photo appeared on other AHS students’ newsfeeds and quickly spread among teenagers throughout California. The photo had originated from Bakersfield, and the California Department of Education (CDE) and Educational Testing Services (ETS) both launched investigations. If caught, the student who had taken the photo would be suspended from school, have his CAHSEE test invalidated, would be subject to criminal charges and prosecution by the local district attorney's office, and a civil lawsuit for copyright infringements, because the CAHSEE is copyrighted material.

    Although it is also rumored that the photo had been taken to “make fun” of the ability level of the question, AHS students agree that the person who had taken the photo had crossed the line. Sophomore Tiffany Shar said, “Even if people thought that the problem was funny, taking a picture of [it] and violating the rules was taking the joke a little too far.” Freshman Jeffrey Wu agreed, “I think the student [who took the picture] was dumb, because it is not worth breaking the law just to have a good laugh afterwards.” Additionally, freshman Jollin Lai said, “This question may have amused the student, but breaking the rules and taking a picture during a test was too much.” According to AHS’s administrator of assessment, Mr. Craig Wiblemo, “[This incident serves] as a reminder [of] the ubiquity of cell phone cameras and how quickly and easily they can be used to cheat on exams, from routine quizzes in [the] classroom to statewide assessments and college entrance exams.”

    Although it doesn’t appear as if AHS had anything to do with the origin of the photo, the incident serves as a reminder to students to think before you leap, whether it be cheating on a test or plagiarizing an essay. The incident also brings up the lesson that though jokes may be funny sometimes, there are some lines that just can’t be crossed.

    The California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) is an exam administered yearly to all high school students, except freshmen. The passing of the CAHSEE is one of AHS’s graduation requirements. (Needs a more substantiative intro. kind of sum up the problem and indicate that initially it was believed that AHS was a part of this. At the moment, the intro doesn't say anything about what you're writing about)

    Lately, there has been a rumor circulating about a photo of a CAHSEE question.

    - good, just work on the intro a bit
    - right now, the article fits perfectly in the layout, so try not to lengthen the article by too much.

    The California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) is an exam administered yearly to all high school students, except freshmen. Because the passing of the CAHSEE is one of AHS’s graduation requirements, cheating on the CAHSEE would result in serious consequences. This is why the recent rumor about a photo of a CAHSEE question has attracted much attention. The rumor claimed that an AHS student had taken a photo of a CAHSEE question and had posted it on Facebook. However, the facts have been cleared up, and no AHS student had cheated on the CAHSEE.

    Though a haze of confusion had shrouded the problem at hand, all facts have been reviewed and confirmed. A student in Bakersfield taking the CAHSEE had taken a picture of question #92 in the mathematics portion with his cell phone. The photo was posted on the social networking site Facebook, and an AHS sophomore student was “tagged” in the photo.
