Student in-class engagement is an important indicator of student successs. However, it is difficult for a teacher to continually assess student engagement during class, especially in a large classroom. We propose supporting teachers’ post-hoc reflection on their effectiveness in stimulating student engagement by providing video summaries from in-classroom cameras. Future iterations of the approach could include automatic vision-based assessment for objective, longitudinal measurement of student engagement across classrooms, subjects and teaching styles.
