PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona education officials have asked the state Attorney General’s Office to investigate possible cheating at seven schools where officials say some students’ answers on standardized tests were erased and changed to the correct answer at a higher-than-normal rate.

The Arizona Republic also reports (https://bit.ly/1zOhnJw ) that the Department of Education invalidated a number of 2014 AIMS tests at the schools because of answers being changed.

The department submitted its request Wednesday.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Diane Douglas said in a letter to the Attorney General’s Office that the department has not concluded that any particular student, teacher or administrator was responsible for the answer changing.

The schools identified by the department include Tucson’s Edge High and Children’s Success Academy, Tempe’s Integrity Education Centre, Phoenix’s James Sandoval/Crown Point High School.
