Although engagement and learning appear linked, quantita-
tively measuring this relationship is challenging. New tech-
nologies offer a window into studying the interactions among
classroom activity, student engagement, and positive learning
outcomes in computer-equipped classrooms. A Classroom
Behavioral Analysis System (CBAS) was developed to mea-
sure student engagement in a college writing class, and to test
the hypothesis that an interactive lesson would increase stu-
dent engagement levels in a computer-equipped classroom.
