ACT Admissions Test to Be Given Digitally
Starting as early as spring 2015, the ACT college-admissions exam will go digital, reflecting students' tech savvy and the demand for quicker results. The tests will still have the familiar multiple-choice options, but they will also expand to include interactive portions, such as a simulated science lab for students to conduct experiments or space for students to explain concepts in their own words.
In 2012, almost 1.7 million students took the ACT, about the same as the rival SAT, which is administered with pencil and paper.
