Dr. Bryan Garner of RTI International is leading an effort to develop training materials for HIV/AIDS organizations to offer substance use disorder treatment to their clients. In order to gauge what substance use disorders are most threatening and which treatments are most needed, Dr. Garner chose the Real-Time Delphi methodology to gather consensus opinions.
I was brought into the project about 6 weeks before the first round of the survey went live. I modernized the existing application interface as much as possible, then monitored the data collection during the open survey window.
After the first round was complete, I began designing a new application to be used in the second and third rounds. Material Design and Material-UI helped me present a large amount of information in an organized manner so our respondents had the appropriate background knowledge for each question.
I used a tech stack of React, GraphQL, and Apollo to allow each question component to update independently and track each respondent's progress through the survey in real time.
