This is a form of survey used with an expert group, with the aim of identifying those issues where the group can reach a consensus, and those where individuals can express disagreement with the group. The survey is administered iteratively to the group, and for each iteration after the first, each participant receives a summary of their own responses and the mean response of the group on the previous iteration, allowing them to change their response to move closer to the norm or to choose to differ.
