In this thesis, we present the design and implementation of a data storage and viewing system for students' classroom work. Our system, which extends the classroom interaction system called Classroom Learning Partner, collects answers sent by students for in-class exercises and allows the teacher to browse through these answers, annotate them, and display them to the class on a public projector. To increase and improve data transmission, our system first intelligently compresses student work. These submissions can be manipulated by a teacher in real time and also are saved to a database for future viewing and study. This duel functionality allows for the analysis of student work from multiple lessons at the same time, as well as backup of student work in case of system failure. Teachers can compare the work from multiple students, as well as create portfolios of student work over time. The data storage and viewing system gives both teachers and researchers a view of both students' learning and how students interact with the software system.
