The code produces a Shiny app for a generic elicitation exercise with four hypothetical parameters.
The code can be customised to produce bespoke Shiny apps for conducting structured expert elicitation.The resulting apps can use Chips and Bins (also known as Roulette or Histogram method), tertiles or quartiles (also referred to as bisection) elicitation methods.
You can deploy your bespoke app to a webpage and disseminate them simply by sending the link and a unique ID to each expert. Experts’ answers can be saved locally (on their computer) and emailed back to you, or remotely on a Dropbox folder of your choosing.
The tool includes code for analysing experts’ answers, including fitting and visualising parametric distributions to experts’ probabilities, and aggregating responses from multiple experts.

The Shiny app content and design are based on the methods in the protocol for structured expert elicitation (SEE) funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC) written by Bojke et al. (2022) and the subsequent step-by-step guide to SEE written as a collaboration between the Centre for Health Economics and Lumanity.
