This two-year study focuses on objectively assessing the well-being of intellectually gifted students within secondary education. An objective well-being measurement method is developed by combining various subjective research methods and linking them with objective physiological data. This approach largely mitigates the disadvantages (and therefore potential inaccuracies and criticisms) associated with subjective well-being data, typically gathered through self-reporting. To collect data, various sensors and an app are used, and the data is analyzed utilizing today's technological capabilities, including AI and DML.
