Some test scores at Schalmont Middle School are thrown out, after the district says students had advanced knowledge of some of the questions. Erin Connolly has the details.

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. -- Some New York State test scores in the Schalmont Central School District have been ruled invalid.

According to the superintendent, some students were exposed to questions on the test before it was given to them. The ELA exams for sixth and eighth grade students, and the math exam for sixth grade students are the test that have been ruled invalid.

The superintendent said the students will not need to retake the exams.

A statement released by the superintendent read, "The district takes this matter very seriously, and I personally want to apologize to our students and entire community that this unfortunate incident has occurred. Although these tests do not factor into students’ grades or promotion to the next grade level, our students, faculty and staff work very hard throughout the year in preparation for these exams."
