College Inside Track was featured on KARE 11 TV discussing the ACT testing and registration challenges faced by high school students and their families.

In the KARE 11 interview, CIT’s Chris Wills said the problems started in the spring, when many schools had to cancel their in-school testing dates due to the virus.

And that’s when everything came crashing down.

“There were just so many families trying to register for the test and it just overwhelmed the system,” Wills said.
