    6363This Delphi process is dynamic because of the following reasons:[[BR]]
    6464
    65 *An expert can participate in any phase of the decision-making process
    66 at any time, that is, 1) problem identification, 2) information gathering, 3)
    67 solution generation, 4) evaluation.[[BR]]
    68 
    69 This feature allows individuals to have discussions in forums where
    70 they can present information and debate issues as replies to
    71 specific options. Because the dialogue is text-based, others can
    72 read and benefit from the content.[[BR]]
    73 
    74 * An expert can participate online at any time during the day or night,
    75 given an Internet connection and web browser.[[BR]]
    76 
    77     * This feature helps professionals dedicate thoughts and ideas to the discourse as they arise after having time to think about a problem. This means they can choose a time to participate that is convenient for them. However, when some issues call for face-to-face
    78 meetings, the Dynamic Delphi approach can be used in preparation for, during, and/or after the group meeting as the meeting agenda
    79 or summary instrument.[[BR]]
    80 
    81 * There is real-time feedback of both the professionals’ individual opinions
    82 and of the group’s opinion.[[BR]]
    83 
    84 * Experts can vote, change their votes or withhold their votes for some
    85 reason.[[BR]]
     65 * An expert can participate in any phase of the decision-making process at any time, that is,
     66     1) problem identification,
     67     2) information gathering,
     68     3) solution generation,
     69     4) evaluation.[[BR]]
     70
     71    * This feature allows individuals to have discussions in forums where they can present information and debate issues as replies to specific options. Because the dialogue is text-based, others can read and benefit from the content.[[BR]]

     73 * An expert can participate online at any time during the day or night, given an Internet connection and web browser.[[BR]]

     78
     79 * Experts can vote, change their votes or withhold their votes for some reason.[[BR]]
    8680
    8781    * The merits of the situation can change, or new information can sway opinions. Either way, the vote mimics the real-time opinion of the expert and, hence, the group.[[BR]]
    8882
    89 * Not all members of the group have to interact in order for a decision
    90 process to continue.[[BR]]
     83 * Not all members of the group have to interact in order for a decision process to continue.[[BR]]
    9184
    9285    * There may be cases where some of the participants cannot be present, or they may feel they do not have the expertise to engage in a specific option.[[BR]]
    9386
    94 * Uncertainty as to the status of the current vote (How final are the votes?)
    95 is calculated, and produced as feedback to the participants.[[BR]]
    96 
    97 * The system requests individual comparisons of options for preferences,
    98 and converts this rank-order information to an interval scale where
    99 distance represents the degree of preference between options.[[BR]]
     87 * Uncertainty as to the status of the current vote (How final are the votes?) is calculated, and produced as feedback to the participants.[[BR]]
     88
     89 * The system requests individual comparisons of options for preferences, and converts this rank-order information to an interval scale where distance represents the degree of preference between options.[[BR]]

    10191This method has been modified to handle incomplete data with respect to participation in voting.
     
    116106This version 1.0 will not support the following features:
    117107
    118 * users to create and pose problems.[[BR]]
    119 
    120 * users outside the voting group to pose solutions- [[BR]]
     108 * users to create and pose problems.[[BR]]
     109
     110 * users outside the voting group to pose solutions- [[BR]]
    121111    * i.e. various permissions to handle all the roles of the users.
    122112
    123 * This version will not be integrated with Sahana, this will be accomplished in version 2.0.   
     113 * This version will not be integrated with Sahana, this will be accomplished in version 2.0.

    127 '''''Version 1.0'''''- will be used to refer to the first build of the system.  This is testing how all of the functionality play together and tests to see if, together this improves group decision making ability in an online asynchronous environment. This is what's due in October.
    128 
    129 '''''Subject''s''' will be used synonymously with Users and Experts.  This system is created for Experts who are Users of the system.  Users will be Subjects in the study that will be conducted on Version 1.0.
    130 
    131 '''''List''''' a list is a problem that is created by someone with this permission.  This is not required for Phase I due Oct.  Only one discussion will be going on and this is presented to a User group who will all have the same permissions.
    132 
    133 '''''Item''''' an item is a solution offered to a problem (List).  Users need to be able to add an Item to the List in Phase I.
     117 Version 1.0 :: will be used to refer to the first build of the system.  This is testing how all of the functionality play together and tests to see if, together this improves group decision making ability in an online asynchronous environment. This is what's due in October.

     119 Subject :: will be used synonymously with Users and Experts.  This system is created for Experts who are Users of the system.  Users will be Subjects in the study that will be conducted on Version 1.0.

    154144So, three scales are required for Phase I: [[BR]]
    155145 1) present calculation based on those who have voted[[BR]]
    156  2) scale of best case scenario (calculation in technical requirements)
     146 2) scale of best case scenario (calculation in technical requirements)[[BR]]
    157147 3) scale of vote giving worst case scenario of non-voting members
