Open Source Software For Analysis And Correlation Of Reading Patterns With Superior Sat Scores Using Eye Gaze Tracking Device [Completed]

2019-05-19T22:01:33+09:00

Open Source Software For Analysis And Correlation Of Reading Patterns With Superior Sat Scores Using Eye Gaze Tracking Device Abstract An open-source application using a gaze tracking device for investigating a correlation between reading patterns and superior Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) reading scores is presented. An eye gaze tracking device tracks where the reader is looking across the screen and provides the coordinates of the gaze. The collected data enables us to determine reading patterns and times spent looking at specific sections of the screen and analyze them. The statistical analysis shows that the ratio of [...]

Development of Facial Recognition Algorithm for Marking Attendance

2019-05-19T22:01:33+09:00

Development of Facial Recognition Algorithm for Marking Attendance Abstract We propose to use a facial recognition technology in a smart attendance application in order to make the attendance taking process more efficient. The conventional method, such as manual roll call, is inefficient and time consuming. However, with the application of facial recognition technology, the attendance taking process becomes automated and unobtrusive, thereby making it a smarter alternative to traditional methods. In this paper, we introduce an open source attendance taking program using OpenFace for the facial recognition module. We use a machine learning approach to build [...]

Effect of Sleep Quality of Examination Performance

2019-05-19T22:01:33+09:00

Effect of Sleep Quality of Examination Performance Abstract This research was conducted because the student was interested in finding out how sleep quality affected exam results. At the time, the student was using a sleep tracking application every night to gather the necessary data for this study. While sleeping, humans become immobile, so a sleep tracking application is needed to track sleeping patterns as data for this project. At first, the student wanted to know how sleep tracking apps worked, so the student wanted to create a sleep tracking app of her own. However, after the [...]

An Open Source Software For Post-Match Spatio Temporal Performance Analysis Of Soccer Players

2019-05-19T22:01:33+09:00

An Open Source Software For Post-Match Spatio Temporal Performance Analysis Of Soccer Players Abstract An Open Source, post-match analysis software that recreates player and soccer ball movements as two dimensional trajectories as seen from a bird’s eye view is implemented. This allows for spatio-temporal analyses of player movements in relation to the soccer ball to be made. Each player is outfitted with a Global Positioning System (GPS) device that collects high frequency data from geostationary satellites at a constant interval of less than one second. The collected player and soccer ball position data are visualized using animation-type plots [...]

Paving the road abroad for Japanese students

2019-05-19T22:01:33+09:00

While there has been a push for more Japanese students to go abroad for university these past few years, there still remain numerous hurdles and difficulties in doing so. Examples of such hurdles include perceived cost, time commitment, and access to resources and information regarding the application process. To combat these hurdles and make the path easier for prospective students, a group of four students from Japan who had made that arduous jump (Nana, Yuki, Elena, and Christina) joined together to create Ryu-Kit, a comprehensive resource and guide for those looking to continue their studies overseas. The website, set to launch [...]

Science Struggles: High School Biology, Physics, and Chemistry

2019-05-19T22:01:34+09:00

Adapting to science classes can be one of the most difficult adjustments for students to make in high school. Below we’ve listed out aspects that can make the adjustment to these classes difficult and what needs to be focused on for success.   Biology Biology is one of the easiest classes to study the wrong way for. Most students spend hours sitting in front of flash cards when succeeding on the AP Biology Exam requires a whole different skill set in addition to reading and memorization. Students tend to realize this too late in the year, which hurts their score and [...]
