In this paper, we aim to predict students’ learning perfor-mance by combining two-modality sensing variables, namely eye tracking that monitors learners’ eye movements and elec-troencephalography (EEG) that measures learners’ cerebral activity. Our long-term goal is to use both data to provide ap-propriate adaptive assistance for students to enhance their learning experience and optimize their performance. An ex-perimental study was conducted in order to collet gaze data and brainwave signals of fifteen students during an interac-tion with a virtual learning environment. Different classifica-tion algorithms were used to discriminate between two groups of learners: students who successfully resolve the problem-solving tasks and students who do not. Experimental results demonstrated that the K-Nearest Neighbor classifier achieved good accuracy when combining both eye movement and EEG features compared to using solely eye movement or EEG.
