SAT exams are going digital

UNDATED (AP) — What will happen to all those No. 2 pencils? It’s a question to be pondered now that SAT exams are making the transition from pencil and paper — to being done electronically. Administrators of the tests say making them digital will boost their relevancy, even as a growing number of colleges made standardized tests optional for applicants. The format change rolls out internationally next year and begins in the U.S. starting in 2024.
