Chinese Students Arrested for Cheating on TOEFL Exam
International students attending American colleges are required to have test scores showing the ability to speak and write in English.
Many universities require a minimum score on the TOEFL, the Test of English as a Foreign Language, (of) between 79 and 100. The score is calculated in four parts: reading, speaking, listening and writing.
According to the 2016 Open Doors report, there are over 328,000 students from China out of a million international students in the United States.
However, some students who want to come to the U.S. may not be able to score that high on the tests. This, in turn, has launched an industry to meet their demand.
This week, police arrested four students for cheating on their TOEFL.
Yue Wang, a business school student in Massachusetts, received $7,000 to take the tests for three other students. Those three students were admitted to Arizona State University, Penn State University and Northeastern University.
William Weinreb is the acting U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts. He said the students broke the rules of the exam and took spots at universities that could have gone to qualified students.
The students in the case face charges of trying defraud the United States because they used false results to receive student visas from the U.S. State Department.
It is not the first time something like this has happened. In 2015, the U.S. Department of Justice charged 15 Chinese students who planned to have others take the college admissions test for them.
Earlier this year, the College Board canceled the results of the international SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) for some students after concerns of cheating arose.

很多大学要求托福（检定非英语为母语者的考试）最低分数在79分到100分之间 。考试内容包括4个部分：阅读、口语、听力和写作 。
2016年的“门户开放报告”(Open Doors Report)显示，美国1百万名留学生中，来自中国的留学生就超过32.8万 。
然而，一些想在美国求学的学生可能无法在考试中达到及格分数 。这一需求转而催发了一个新兴行业 。
马萨诸塞州商学院一名学生王悦在收取7000美元后为3名学生代考 。3名学生分别被亚利桑那州立大学、宾夕法尼亚州立大学和西北大学录取 。
威廉·威恩雷布（William Weinreb）是马萨诸塞州的代理检察官 。他说，这些学生违反了考试条例，占用了那些本该给予合格学生的入学资格 。
该一案件并非首例 。2015年，美国司法部曾起诉了15位试图让别人代替参加入学考试的中国学生 。
