A Parametric Statistics as A Supporting Tool to the Social Sciences

John E. Goulionis, Dimitrios I. Stengos


\emph{Partially Observable Markov Decision Processes} (POMDPs) have recently been suggested as a suitable model to formalizing the planning of educational management. In this paper, we discuss a specialization of POMDPs that is tailored to a frequently re-occurring type of educational management problem. Furthermore under some reasonable conditions it is shown that there exists an optimal policy in the class of control limit policies and we develop a solution procedure utilizing these properties of the specialized form.
