It is important for educators to be able to detect students' input through their output. To define output, it can be in the form of fulfilling the task given and based on the total score; educators nevertheless would be able to identify students ability in understanding certain topic taught. However, that would not be the only methodology in gauging students understanding. There are numbers of way and one of them is through multimodals. Multimodal is defined as multiple forms of input and output such as language and expressed emotion. This research would be entirely based on the human behavior, focusing on the upper level, by understanding students' input ability through their facial displays such as gazing, yawning, random head-movement and so on, so forth. By the end of this research paper, educators would gain more knowledge on gauging students performance during lessons. Apart from the aforementioned benefit, also educators would be able to know which application technology suits for certain research. By so doing, educators not only know which application should be used but also on how to use and utilize the adopted device for this application domain.
