The graph below shows the results of the third round of the Goals and Objectives Delphi study, which ended on April 6th, 2009. Each candidate objective was rated on a scale from 1-5 according to the following definitions:
- Of little importance
- Moderately important
- Very important
Fifty email invitations to participate in Round 3 were sent out and 40 complete responses were received (for 80% response rate, which is quite high for this kind of survey).
