Students at 242 Calif schools posted test pictures online
Students at nearly 250 California schools, including nine in Kern County, posted photos on social-media websites while they were taking standardized tests, again prompting questions about testing security, state education officials said.
School administratorshave no business looking at students web postings. A clear violation of personal privacy. /sarcasm
The new Oldsmobiles are in early this year!

I agree with you that they shouldn't be looking at student's web pages. But then, I wonder why they are spending all the time doing it unless perhaps it's a school rule not to be using their computers. Or their phones, etc. In either case, the administrators would be better off spending time on administrating than being busy bodys. I note your sarcasm as well as goes security/privacy. You're right. There is none of that either.
Age is a very high price to pay for my maturity. If I can't stay young, I can at least stay immature!

I say, and I assume vaxvms is of like mind, that being online during tests is tantamount to cheating: if you can get photos out, you can get answers in. And leaking test questions (potentially to people who have not yet taken the test) is probably a violation of the rules.
I don't think I've ever taken a closed-room test where communication with people outside the test room was permitted.

Guess they're going to have to set up dedicated testing rooms and make them into faraday cages to block any cell signals.
Then again, some stricter supervision can go a long way. Forbid cell phones from entering the exam room, have teacher(s) constantly walk around watching the students and if anyone is caught with a cell phone during the exam it's an instant fail, no exceptions.

Universities if the class is small the professor monitors the tests. If it is large the TAs assist. You do not want to be caught breaking any rule. The tests were there are no rules you do not want to take.
