The DIAGNOSER project: Combining assessment and learning

Anne Thissen-Roe, Earl Hunt, Jim Minstrell
2004 Behavoir research methods, instruments & computers  
It delivers continuous formative assessment and feedback to high school physics students and their teachers about the correct and incorrect concepts and ideas the students may hold regarding physical situations  ...  DIAGNOSER question sets are delivered using a combination of HTML, Java, and JavaScript, using primarily text, simple widgets, and low-bandwidth images.  ...  This type of assessment has the advantage of being immediate, in depth, and curriculum relevant. It measures what the teacher wants the students to learn, when the teacher wants to know about it.  ...

Combining Crowdsourcing and Deep Learning to Assess Public Opinion on CRISPR-Cas9 [article]

Martin Muller, Manuel Schneider, Marcel Salathe, Effy Vayena
2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
Such data can now be mined and analyzed quickly because of recent developments in machine learning and natural language processing.  ...  Here, we used BERT, an attention-based transformer model, in combination with statistical methods to analyse the entirety of all tweets ever published on CRISPR since the publication of the first gene  ...  We believe however that by employing extended preprocessing, filtering, and state of the art machine learning, we can capture certain trends on a larger scale.  ...

Assessing Policy, Loss and Planning Combinations in Reinforcement Learning using a New Modular Architecture [article]

Tiago Gaspar Oliveira, Arlindo L. Oliveira
2022 arXiv   pre-print
We illustrate the use of this architecture by combining several of these building blocks to implement and test agents that are optimized to three different test environments: Cartpole, Minigrid, and Tictactoe  ...  Experiments performed with this architecture have shown that the best combination of planning algorithm, policy, and loss function is heavily problem dependent.  ...  and finding more suitable algorithm combinations.  ...
