WOODBURY - Officials say new security measures will be in place this weekend for students taking the SAT college entrance test. The measures are to make sure students do not cheat on the exam. Students will have to provide photo identification and an admission ticket.

Student "walk-ins" are no longer allowed the same day as the test.

Proctors who oversee students will also have better training to prevent paid test takers from posing to be students. The changes come after 20 students and former students were arrested in the cheating scandal at five Nassau County schools.
