More effort has focused on integrating instructional technologies into classrooms than has focused on assessing the impact of these technologies on teaching and learning performance. To evaluate whether computer technology is beneficial to the teaching and learning process requires that we first develop a system to understand what students in a classroom do when there are computers in front of them. We identify the requirements for such a system and then describe a prototype system that uses off-the-shelf spyware as its main component. We report findings from a pilot study we conducted in a computer-equipped composition classroom. Our results show that while the monitoring system captured the necessary data, the use of an off-the-shelf tool did not completely satisfy all of our system requirements. Additional customization work on keystroke recording and password protection is necessary to effectively monitor real-time student in-class activities.
