Abstract
  • A Delphi Expert Opinion procedure was used for evaluating Land Evaluation and Site Assessment (LESA) ratings in Linn County, Oregon. The Delphi procedure uses an expert panel to answer a set of questions by anonymous responses, controlled feedback in two or three iterations, and a statistical summary of group responses. A panel of 1 4 local experts rated five diverse sites. Results indicated that the Delphi panel was able to identify site specific factors which were not addressed by the LESA model, indicating that their rating was, for the specific conditions of each site, a reasonable benchmark. Although there were differences between the Delphi panel and LESA ratings, in general the LESA model appears to be correctly ranking sites on a relative scale. Certain improvements to the LESA model were determined by the benchmark evaluation.
