Abstract Title: Lens to Learning: Automating assessment of student groups based on visual cues
Abstract: Is it possible to tell -- just by watching student groups in a classroom -- the kinds of discussions they are having? Is information about students' activities reliably expressed in visual observables like gestures, posture, and facial expressions? We describe collaborative research between physics education and computer vision to automate assessment of student group behavior based on visual cues.
