UNDATED (AP) Students have always found ways to cheat, but school officials are on to a new method: digital media players like iPods.

Principals report youngsters have been fairly crafty at concealing the compact devices under their clothing and listening for the scrolled-answers through an earbud.

Some have concealed answers in the ``lyrics'' text files, where they're harder to spot.

As a result, iPods and Zunes are being added to the list of gear banned during tests. In a lot of schools, that list already ranged from items like baseball caps to cell phones.
