Oddly enough, I bet wearing those anti-cheating hats actually raised test scores, because there were fewer distractions to concentration.

It's long been known that "talking to yourself" in your head is very distracting, and if you want to do something that requires a lot of concentration, like meditation, you need to shut up in your head first.  So there are lots of techniques so that people can train themselves to turn off the talking for longer and longer periods of time.

Imagine being able to take a test for an entire hour without distraction.  You would probably score much higher.
