  • Patent number: 9817626
    Abstract: Technologies are generally described for systems and methods effective to output a composite image. In some examples, a processor may be configured to receive first and second display data that relate to a first and second image. The processor may identify an overlap region where the first display overlaps the second display and generate imaging instructions effective to cause the first and second image to be output on the first display and second display, respectively. The processor may further modify the first imaging instructions based on the overlap region to produce a modified first imaging instruction. The processor may send the modified first imaging instruction to the first display so that the first image is output on the first display at a first resolution. The processor may send the second imaging instruction to the second display so that the second image is output on the second display at a second resolution.

  • Publication number: 20170278417
    Abstract: Methods of and systems for relating patterns of eye movement to aspects of test performance are described. Measurable eye movement patterns in relation to a test potentially reflect problem solving strategies used by a test taker. In some embodiments, movement patterns are evaluated to indicate a level of engagement with the material. Potentially, this provides a basis for flagging test cheating, and/or identification of weaknesses in test taking skills. In some embodiments, non-eye movement behaviors are monitored. In some embodiments, monitored behaviors are used as an auxiliary to the test itself—for example, to augment scoring, and/or to reduce dependence of test results on test skills as such.
