ATLANTA (AP) - As jurors deliberate for an eighth day in the Atlanta test cheating scandal, they have a large number of actual exams to inspect.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports (https://on-ajc.com/1CMBd6X) that the jury resumed its closed-door discussions Wednesday morning in Atlanta.

Jurors had requested copies of the Criterion-Referenced Competency Test to examine, and they’ll be able to do so Wednesday.

The Atlanta newspaper reports that Fulton County Superior Court Judge Jerry Baxter on Tuesday suggested asking jurors for a status report. A prosecutor replied that it was too soon, and Baxter opted not to ask them about their progress.

A grand jury indicted 35 educators in March 2013. Many reached plea agreements with prosecutors.

The trial began in August with more than six weeks of jury selection. Testimony concluded in late February.
