Rater and Rating puzzle

I will not tell you how many times I thought about this puzzle, it is more than a couple of times for sure.  Here’s the setup:

Given a focus topic area, a group of people with diversified background and levels of related aptitude/skill, allowing pairwise conversations so that people can evaluate each other’s level of expertise on the topic but with NO group sharing.  Suppose you can collect a rating matrix where each row corresponds to a rater and each column a ratee, with cell containing the rating.

Q:  What patterns do you expect to find?  Patterns for expert, and patterns for novice?
