The purpose of this project is to take data generated by a software system used to test for learning difficulties. The test involves asking the subject to draw a line meeting dots on a screen as they appear. This examines the subjects hand-eye co-ordination skills as the line drawn by the user is displayed in a different area from that of the appearing dots. The final result is a series of Xml files containing information about each individual test carried out. It is this data that must be converted to a global format and analysed to highlight any association between trends in lines drawn and learning difficulties.
