LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The Kentucky Department of Education is moving to paper and pencil tests for the remainder of the school year after getting conflicting reports from test vendor ACT about its technology.

The Education Department says about 25 districts reported slow connections and sometimes dropped connections from the ACT Vantage testing system that is used to administer the online end-of-course exams to high school students.

The subjects affected included English II, Algebra II, Biology and U.S. History. The issues were sporadic and also affected students testing in Alabama and Ohio.

ACT told the Education Department that efforts were being made to fix the problem and apologized for any inconvenience."
