Education officials will have to rewrite classroom tests used in hundreds of Texas school districts after conservative activists posted their questions and answers online.

The Austin American Statesman reported Saturday that 30 tests were published on two conservative websites.

The tests were produced under a controversial curriculum system originally known as CSCOPE, though last week it formally underwent a name change. Some tea party groups say CSCOPE promoted anti-American, anti-Christian values.

The first 10 tests were posted Wednesday by, while a second website,, added a second batch Friday.

Mason Moses, a spokesman for the state-funded Education Service Centers which developed CSCOPE, said it could cost up to $1 million if a rewrite of all compromised tests is required.
