The Delphi Technique: How Well Does It Work in Setting Educational Goals.
Sweigert, Ray L., Jr.; Schabacker, William H.
Starting with a set of existing goals, use of the Delphi technique to establish educational goals in this investigation assumed: convergence in perception over rounds, greater convergence on the second round than on later rounds, the reliability of ranking of goals produced, the necessity of at least three rounds, and the desirability of feedback of own response to participants. In testing these assumptions, three studies were conducted, one with 275 community leaders, one with 429 educators, and one with 369 high school students. The first three assumptions were confirmed. The last two assumptions were shown to be questionable. (Author)
