Training systems based on virtual reality are used in several areas of human activities. In some kinds of training is important to know the trainee’s skills. It can be done in those systems but requires high-end computers to achieve good performance. Recently, the use of embedded systems connected to the training system was proposed for training assessment, with the goal of decreasing requirements of the main system. However, some questions are still open and a deep study of this proposal was not performed. This paper provides answers for some of those questions.
