  *tl;dr: *You can find the results of the Wikimania 2014 Evaluation Survey
  on Wikimedia Commons *[1]*
 
  Greetings,
 
 
  Today we posted a slide deck summarizing data from the Wikimania
 evaluation
  survey from this year’s event in London. The survey was a collaborative
  effort of the Wikimania Conference and Hackathon organizers and the WMF
  Learning and Evaluation team. Conferences and hackathons had been
  identified as key programs to develop evaluation insight.   Given the
  opportunity to collaborate on an evaluation survey,  WMF team members
  partnered with conference and hackathon organizers to provide the
 technical
  support to complete the survey project.
 
  This first survey offers a look into the processes and outcomes of the
  conference. It is intended as a means for  participants to share what
 they
  got out of the conference and a platform to collect information on how we
  can improve future conferences and their evaluation. We have released  a
  basic data summary and meta page with brief highlights of the survey and
  link to a pdf slide deck published to Commons *[1]*.
 
 
 
 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Evaluation/Case_studies/Wikimania_London_Survey_Results
 
  == Methodology ==
 
  * Online survey via Qualtrics *[2]*
 
  * Data collection:
 
  ** August 10th – September 15th, 2014
 
  ** Conference participants: 1520
 
  ** Survey Respondents: n=792 (52% of conference participants)
 
  === The Conference Overall ===
 
  * Participants were highly satisfied with the conference overall.
 
  * 91% of respondents rated the conference as Good (48%) or Excellent
  (43%)
 
  * 87% indicated their expectations had been met (48%) or exceeded
 (39%)
 
  * The most named benefits of attending Wikimania were meeting people and
  finding out about projects.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Fwd: Bad usage of money in Brazil

2014-05-30 Thread Jaime Anstee
Hello Lila,

I wanted to answer your question regarding the bubbles in the  bubble
chart as that chart  has been pulled from our *Program Evaluation (beta)*
reports, this one from the Wiki Loves Monuments report, available at:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:Evaluation/Library/WLM

The bubble charts are intersecting data along three dimensions, an x- and
y- axis as well as a z-axis illustrated by bubble size. That particular
chart, Graph 2: Budget, participation, and photos added, illustrates the
number of participants along the horizontal x-axis, budget along the
vertical y-axis, and number of images uploaded along the vertical z-axis
illustrated by bubble size and numeric label.

The data represent 11 Wiki Loves Monuments implementations in 2012 for
which we had all three points of data reported. The reviewed contests had
budget inputs ranging from less than $1,000 USD to almost $17,000 USD. The
number of participants ranging from 75 to 2,005, and the number of images
added ranged from nearly 2,000 to more than 30,000. (The raw data are also
available in the original report as appendix tables)

The varying sizes of the bubbles — with larger bubbles representing more
images uploaded — show that the number of photos increase significantly
when events have over 500 participants. There does not seem to be a direct
relationship between budget, participant count, or images uploaded. The
bubble size doesn't get larger or smaller — meaning when more money is
invested in an Wiki Loves Monuments implementation, that doesn't mean the
event will have a higher participant count or a higher upload count.

Hope that helps to clarify the chart.  Please let me know if you have
further questions!

Best regards,

Jaime

[Wikimedia-l] RfC Let's Talk! Program Evaluation and Metrics

2014-05-19 Thread Jaime Anstee
Greetings!

With apologies for any cross-posting, we are contacting you all now as we
are reaching out to the Wikimedia community and all program leaders,
evaluators, volunteers, and others who hold a stake and/or interest in
Wikimedia program evaluation and design.

We present this request for comment (RfC) and a new community discussion
page on the evaluation portal:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Parlor/Dialogue

Let's Talk! Program Evaluation and Metrics

As we come upon one year’s time since our Program Evaluation and Design
team began on the initiative to build program evaluation capacity, we’d
like to hear from the community of Wikimedia -- program leaders,
evaluators, volunteers, and other stakeholders in program evaluation and
design -- about your perspectives on those efforts.

Background: The focus of the evaluation capacity building initiative is
peer learning, practice sharing, and the adoption of shared language and
approach to program evaluation across the movement. This initiative is to
support the discoverability and innovation of programs that will achieve
high impact. Importantly, the team is charged with developing learning
resources and tools to support program leaders to self-evaluate their
program efforts and impacts.

Current RfC: Please visit the dialogue pages to share your perspective on:

* How we should evaluate and report on the program evaluation and design
capacity-building initiative.

* The evaluation learning opportunities and resources made available.

* Program metrics piloted in the beta reports.

* How we should assess grantmaking to groups and individuals.

Visit
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Parlor/Dialogue

for all the details and to participate.

Please be encouraged to also forward this announcement to any lists or
individuals you think might be interested.

On behalf of the Program Evaluation and Design team, thank you for your
time and attention, we hope to hear from you in our portal.


Best regards,

Jaime

Re: [Wikimedia-l] New Evaluation Report: Wikipedia Education Program

2014-04-07 Thread Jaime Anstee
Hello Anne,

Thank you for your interest. I have posted your question and the following
response on the report's talk page
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs_talk:Evaluation_portal/Library/WEP

Please continue with any further comments and dialogue there.

Best regards,

Jaime


== For the overall WEP report could you please spell out on the Wiki page
exactly what programs you are talking about, and link each to their
specific report?  I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what is being
reported as part of the WEP, what projects are affected, and which programs
have more participants. ==

:Program leaders who self-reported were assured their data would be
reported without their program name identifiers. With this low a report
count, even without program names listed in line with the data, this is
very difficult to do. The implementations reported here represent program
activity in the Arab world program, Czech Republic, Mexico, Nepal, Quebec,
and the US/Canada. The data reported at the bottom actually have unique
Report ID numbers that can be matched across the last three tables so
that you can actually regenerate the dataset missing only event names (See
Appendix heading More Data for the complete input, output, and outcome
data used in the report). Those data include the instructor classroom
count, number of program weeks, and participant counts for each
implementation reported. In the future we plan to ask program leaders what
level of identifiability in this reporting they are comfortable with and
include identifiers in cases in which reporters volunteer to share that
information publicly.
:However, as there is some expressed interest in possibly comparing
programs, I must restate the need for caution, at this early stage in the
reporting, with such small numbers of implementers reporting (less than 10%
potentially), we are aware that the data do not represent all programming,
and that the data are too variable to draw comparisons between programs
statistically.  Further, in the case where the count of classroom varies
highly across implementations, aggregate reporting of more than one-hundred
classrooms is not directly comparable to the reporting of a single
classroom since summative statistics from an increased number of
observations generates a ''regression to the mean'' and do not make for a
one-to-one comparison.
:These issues as well as any other comments and/or suggestions are welcome
on this talk page.

Wikipedia Education Program, is now available on meta:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Library/WEPhttps://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_portal/Library/WLM

Highlights of the report include:

==Inputs==

The average Wikipedia Education Program reported cost a total of almost
$8,000 USD in total, and $275 each week to implement. The average Wikipedia
Education Program invests a total of $67 US and 3 hours into recruiting
each new editor participant.


==Participation==

Program leaders reported participation rates ranging from 25 to 2,372, and
programs lasted from two weeks to 21 months with an average of 37.5 weeks.


==Outputs==

For the seven reported Wikipedia Education Program implementations, almost
3,000 different Wikimedia pages were created or improved. The average
Wikipedia Education Program produces about 120 pages of content each week.
The average program participant adds just under half a page of content to
Wikipedia and creates or improves six wiki pages each week.


==Outcomes==

Out of the 3,334 new editor participants in Wikipedia Education Program, 36
(1.2%) participants were active three months after the program ended; 33
(1.1%) were active six months after the programs ended.

Questions are welcome and encouraged on the talk page.

On behalf of the Program Evaluation team,

Jaime

Hello again,

I received an offlist reply that some examples of the work the program
evaluation team has been involved in would be helpful.

Here are links to some of the recent
reportshttps://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/PE%26D_Reports on
the initial coordinated program evaluation worked we've completed and some
blogs https://blog.wikimedia.org/tag/program-evaluation/ about our teams
role and goals.

Please feel free to let me know if there are any more questions about the
team that I can answer.

Best,

Jaime

 Thanks!  The most interesting datum I've noticed so far is the rate of
 active editor (5+ edits/month) retention among new contributors after
 six months, which is about 0.4%.


 Is active editor retention a metric defined somewhere?
 It's not in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:WMF_
 standardized_editor_classes.


 https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_
 portal/Library/WLM#New_users

 Yes -
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Analytics/Metric_definitions#Active_editor

Thank you for asking, and mentioning that it is not linked in the
section.  I will reference that link there.  I would like to point out that
the overview page to the set of reports does contain a lot of important
information about how things were defined and are reported in each programs
evaluation report.



 That (along with the easy-to-measure and already known sheer quanities
 of photos generated) seems to me to be the most robust number to use in
 evaluating WLM (and comparable) funding requests.  0.4% may be
 considered worthwhile or not enough, depending on local contexts, so I'm
 not drawing a universal conclusion from it, just noting it.


 I find the return rate for the next event even more interesting!

Yes, it is important to remember that there are many other potential
outcomes that have not been measured and are not included in this first
round of evaluation reporting.

See http://www.wikilovesmonuments.org/wiki-loves-monuments-footprint/ for
 more.

 Thank you for sharing this link

Re: [Wikimedia-l] [Wiki Loves Monuments] New Program Evaluation report: Wiki Loves Monuments

2014-01-25 Thread Jaime Anstee
Hello Nemo,

Sorry for the confusing in-line, I entered the conversation late, and
appreciate your patience. I do not think I am understanding what definition
information you are asking for.  The definition of  how we defined the
windows for 3 and 6 month follow-up is written on the overview page in
reference note number 1 and I have now added a second reference to the
mediawiki reference page I shared as that is what the 5+/month is
referenced from.

The way the quarters are defined is also referenced in the main text of the
report with some additional note references. As we are looking at retention
of activeeditors at different follow-up points defined at 3 and 6 months
(as indication of short and intermediate term outcomes) we have outlined
how this was done as a more-or-less quarterly follow-up following the end
of program events.  So yes, the first quarter post event is October through
December and the second January through March.
Assessments are from Wikimetrics and based on a start day and time and end
day and time, not on account creation as these other metrics do as we are
evaluating outreach programs that have event dates and variable account
creation dates. The goal of the metric that was was mainly to assess the
number of active contributors that are actually recruited, survival has
been included mostly for added understanding of the how this active
requirement compares to survival (any activity in the window of interest).

Still, I am not sure if this is answering you either. If you are simply
suggesting we not look at retention at 3 and 6 month intervals but rather
at 1 week, 2 months, and 6 months, as exampled on your page link, I must
say that this is the first time for that suggestion  and that would be
something to discuss on the report talk page (or overview talk page).

If you have additional questions or comments, please share them on the
report talk pages where we would like these conversations to take place and
be recorded.

Thank you,

Jaime

 I know what an active editor is, you'll see in the history that I
 contributed to the section you linked. I asked about the rate of active
 editor retention as Asaf called it, or... Six-month follow-up Active
 second quarter of retention follow-up (??) as mentioned in the page.
 Apart from the confusing terminology, you'll note that it doesn't match
 with the (draft?) definition https://meta.wikimedia.org/
 wiki/Research:Surviving_new_editor even with non-standard n=1, m=15,
 t_2=90 days and t_1  0 unless you arbitrarily pose T = end of September.
 You may want to align definitions a bit.


  I would like to point out that
 the overview page to the set of reports does contain a lot of important
 information about how things were defined and are reported in each
 programs
 evaluation report.


 If you mean https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Programs:Evaluation_
 portal/Library/Overview#Recruitment_and_retention, it doesn't contain
 any definition for the metric.
