Seven teachers at a Houston Elementary School have been suspended for allegations of tampering with the TAKS test.

The school district found multiple test answers changed on the standardized tests.

The investigation found teachers had access to student's answer sheets.

Officials say the changes could have been made because test scores are tied to teacher's jobs and school ratings.

The investigation began when the school received suspiciously high scores from students with learning disabilities.
