SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle School District has brought in a handwriting expert to help try to determine who may have tampered with tests last spring at Beacon Hill International School.

State officials threw out all of the assessment tests after they noticed a suspicious pattern. Fill-in-the-blank questions were changed, and multiple choice answers were corrected. As a result, scores in math and reading went up more than any other school in Washington and nearly every student passed.

District spokeswoman Stacy Howard tells KOMO (https://bit.ly/1waXV5x ) officials hope the handwriting expert will be able to identify a suspect out of all the people who had access to the tests.
