Description/Abstract: 
The Dirchlet Aggregation Tool (DAT) is a companion to the Dirichlet Elicitation Tool (DET; documented elsewhere) which aggregates the marginal beta distributions of the Dirichlet parameters elicited from a group of experts. For the current version of the DAT to work, the elicitations must have been based on version 2.0 of the DET. The functionality of the DAT is straightforward: the user selects the elicitation files (based on DET Version 2.0) to be aggregated, the DAT will perform the aggregation of the cumulative distribution functions of the beta distributions and generate a report of the aggregation result.
