A Florida high school student who improved hundreds of points on her SAT questioned the aptitude of Educational Testing Service after the test maker invalidated her score, CBS reported.
“I won’t let ETS or anybody else take my dreams away from me,” Campbell, 18, said Wednesday at a news conference, shown in the clip above.
But the testing firm notified her in a letter that it questioned the legitimacy of her score “based on substantial agreement between your answers on one or more scored sections of the test and those of other test takers,” CNN reported.
Her attorney, Benjamin Crump, said he was “outraged” by the accusation that “this young black woman” did anything inappropriate. He said he was looking into possible civil rights violations because there “may be some implicit bias that we plan to find out.”
Campbell, a Miami Gardens resident, has a 3.1 grade point average at Michael M. Krop Senior High School, the Miami Times noted.
