Attention is strongly connected with learning and when it comes to acquiring new knowledge, attention is one the most important mechanisms. The learner’s attention affects learning results and can define the success or failure of a student. The negative effects are especially significant when carrying out long or demanding tasks, as often happens in an assessment. This paper presents a monitoring system using computer peripheral devices. Two classes were monitored, a regular one and an assessment one. Results show that it is possible to measure attentiveness in a non-intrusive way.
