  1. 1. Self-Assessment of Writing in Learning English as a Foreign Language. A Study at the Upper Secondary School Level

    Author : Anne Dragemark Oscarson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; HUMANIORA; SOCIAL SCIENCES; HUMANITIES; self-assessment; assessment; language education; EFL; writing; lifelong learning; feedback;

    Abstract : The main aim of this study is to explore the role of self-assessment in EFL learning in developing lifelong language learning skills and in furthering the development of more comprehensive and thereby fairer assessment practices. The study explores how upper secondary school students perceived their own general and specific writing abilities in relation to syllabus goals and whether these perceptions are affected by self-assessment practices.

  4. 4. Path integral control endowed robot planning under spatiotemporal logic specifications

    Author : Péter Várnai; Dimos Dimarogonas; Theodorou Evangelos; KTH; []

    Abstract : The increasing level of autonomy and intelligence of robotic systems in carrying out complex tasks can be expected to revolutionize both the industry and our everyday lives. This thesis takes a step towards automation by leveraging the power of path integral control (PIC) methods for solving control problems under such task satisfaction constraints in both a stochastic control and a reinforcement learning setting.
