Abstract

This paper provides a detailed description of how a smart spaces laboratory has been used for assessing learners’ performance in various educational contexts. The paper shares the authors’ experiences from using sensor-generated data in a number of learning scenarios. In particular the paper describes how a smart learning environment is created with the use of a range of sensors measuring key data from individual learners including (i) heartbeat, (ii) emotion detection, (iii) sweat levels, (iv) voice fluctuations and (v) duration and pattern of contribution via voice recognition. The paper also explains how biometrics are used to assess learner’ contribution in certain activities but also to evaluate collaborative learning in student groups. Finally the paper instigates research in the role of using visualization of biometrics as a medium for supporting assessment, facilitating learning processes and enhancing learning experiences. Examples of how learning analytics are created based on biometrics are also provided, resulting from a number of pilot studies that have taken place over the past couple of years.
