Ranking plus touch-area = step change in functionality
Hi, as you'll know I've used PE for years. A couple of new workshops in the planning stages now; and I'm looking forward to using the Ranking poll type.
Looking at the "New Features" gives me an idea that would be extremely useful for quantitative evaluation in expert elicitation workshops.
Background: My workshops' objective is to evaluate binary risk attributes (Probability and Severity) to >50 scenarios or "risks". Afterward, the average values from workshop participants are displayed on a 5x5 grid, where 1,1 is "not at all risky" and 5,5 is "extremely risky".
What if my participants all used smart phones, tablets, or laptops, and they could input their values DIRECTLY ONTO THE ON-SCREEN GRID? a) It would go much faster; b) There would be freedom from having to categorize into "2 or 3?" "3 or 4"? - participants could just touch at the point on the grid that they judged was right. c) The eternal problem of quantitative anchoring would be solved by the simultaneous - not sequential - evaluation of TWO variables. More on that if you want ... lots of technical literature there ... but it is a big problem in expert elicitation.
