MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) -- All students taking the SAT and ACT college entrance exams will soon have to provide photo IDs on their applications.

It's among the worldwide security initiatives announced Tuesday by a New York prosecutor who's charged 20 current or former high school students in a cheating scheme.

The announcement was given to The Associated Press in advance of a news conference, and was made jointly with The College Board, which runs the SAT, and the second testing company, ACT.

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice says some students were paid up to $3,500 to take the SAT for others.

Rice says in one case, security was so lax that a male student got away with posing as a female.

The New York state Senate also is considering legislation to improve security.
