Substantial literature exists regarding how eye-tracking systems can be used to measure cognitive load and how these measurements can be useful for adapting training in real time. Much of the published literature discusses the applications and limitations of the research and typically provides recommendations for improvement. This review assesses these articles collectively to provide a clearer solution for implementing eye-tracking systems into a training environment. Although limitations exist for using eye tracking as an interface tool, gaze and pupillary response have been successfully used to reflect changes in cognitive load and are starting to be incorporated into adaptive training systems, although issues are still present with differentiating pupil responses from simultaneous psychological effects. Additionally, current eye-tracking systems and data analysis software have proven accurate enough for general use, but issues including system cost and software integration prevent this technology from becoming commercialized for use in common instructional settings.
