The ACT college admissions exam is going digital in 2015, and its creators fully expect some bumps along the way. Just as the company earlier this week announced its new 21st-century testing method, schools in Kentucky were reverting to the classic pencil-and-paper approach after ACT's online assessment system crashed.
