California's Claremont McKenna College says a senior administrator submitted false SAT scores to publications such as U.S. News & World Report that use the data to rank the nation's colleges and universities

The New York Times reports President Pamela Gann told college
staff members and students of the falsified scores in an e-mail Monday. Gann wrote that a "senior administrator" had taken sole responsibility for falsifying the scores, admitted doing so since 2005, and resigned his post.

Gann says the critical reading and math scores reported to U.S.
News and others "were generally inflated by an average of 10-20 points each."

The current U.S. News rankings list Claremont McKenna as the
ninth-best liberal arts college in the country, a fact noted on Gann's biography on the college's website.
