being sued over their sales of students' personal information to outside
parties. A lawsuit filed this week contends that the College Board, which runs the SAT, and ACT, Inc., sell identifying
information about the hundreds of thousands of teenagers who take the exams each
year without the students' consent.The test companies are "masking the
sale" of personal details about the students "under the guise of
'sharing'" the teens' information with other agencies, the suit says. It

will be sold for profit.
