Professional fraud by assessment and diagnostic professionals is certainly a concern, but what they are falsifying typically has to be actual quantitative test results, which is a much higher level of fraud than borderline accommodations, since the College Board and ACT have their own assessment professionals who review submitted evals. You can't just send in a recommendation for accommodations. It has to be accompanied by an evaluative report, including both scores and interpretive narrative. It doesn't have to be long, but it does have to have data. (I've written some one-pagers for accommodations on Pearson professional assessments--think state licensing boards--but even then the quantitative data had to be there.)

The other place that is more likely to be fudging qualifications for accommodations is actually school guidance offices, since they are not required to submit evaluations in every case. College Board could audit them, and then they would have to come up with the testing, but rarely does, so they don't.
