Cheating rampant on Army exams

Bryan Bender and Kevin Baron of The Boston Globe spent five-months investigating the Army's testing program "which verifies that soldiers have learned certain military skills and helps them amass promotion points." Cheating had been suspected since 1999, but the Army did not acknowledge the problem until June 2007. The Globe's investigation learned that the Army dismissed recommendations for increasing test security in 2001 while increasing the number of exams they offered online. Bender and Baron found that hundreds of thousands of completed exam packages had been downloaded over the years.
