I further understand that any unauthorized copying, reproduction, distribution or use of the SAA,

  1. is a violation of copyright held by the Illinois State Board of Education and/or its contractor;
  2. may compromise the results of the assessment;
  3. may result in significant loss and damages to the State of Illinois and its affiliates to replace items or the assessment;
