LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- High-tech high-schoolers are returning to paper and pencil to take mandatory state tests.

Last week, about 25 districts across Kentucky reported connection problems with the ACT Vantage testing system. It's used to administer online end-of-course exams to high school students which are a part of common core standards.

But testing was halted last week because of computer glitches.

ACT assured everything was fixed, but then announced problems were back on Friday. The Department of Education decided to move to paper and pencil tests.
