Global metrics overview - all programs[edit]

We are trying to understand the overall outcomes of the work being funded across our grantees' programs. Please use the table below to let us know how your programs contributed to the Global Metrics. We understand not all Global Metrics will be relevant for all programs, so feel free to put "0" where necessary. For each program include the following table and

  1. Next to each required metric, list the outcome achieved for all of your programs included in your proposal.
  2. Where necessary, explain the context behind your outcome.
  3. In addition to the Global Metrics as measures of success for your programs, there is another table format in which you may report on any OTHER relevant measures of your programs success

For more information and a sample, see Global Metrics.

Overall[edit]

Metric Achieved outcome Explanation
1. # of active editors involved
2. # of new editors

Telling your program stories - all programs[edit]

Please tell the story of each of your programs included in your proposal. This is your chance to tell your story by using any additional metrics (beyond global metrics) that are relevant to your context, beyond the global metrics above. You should be reporting against the targets you set at the beginning of the year throughout the year. We have provided a template here below for you to report against your targets, but you are welcome to include this information in another way. Also, if you decided not to do a program that was included in your proposal or added a program not in the proposal, please explain this change. More resources for storytelling are at the end of this form. Here are some ways to tell your story.

  • We encourage you to share your successes and failures and what you are learning. Please also share why are these successes, failures, or learnings are important in your context. Reference learning patterns or other documentation.
  • Make clear connections between your offline activities and online results, as applicable. For example, explain how your education program activities is leading to quality content on Wikipedia.
  • We encourage you to tell your story in different ways by using videos, sound files, images (photos and infographics, e.g.), compelling quotes, and by linking directly to work you produce. You may highlight outcomes, learning, or metrics this way.
  • We encourage you to continue using dashboards, progress bars, and scorecards that you have used to illustrate your progress in the past, and to report consistently over time.
  • You are welcome to use the table below to report on any metrics or measures relevant to your program. These may or may not include the global metrics you put in the overview section above. You can also share your progress in another way if you do not find a table like this useful.

CHANGES: Please describe how you changed your plans and budget based on the FDC allocation approved by the Board in December 2012, and your rationale for these changes. You can then use the changed plans and budget as the basis on which to report back on the first quarter.

  • Due to the cut in the budget from FDC we had to adjust some of our goals. All new goals are listed below by the respective program. No other changes has been made.

HIGHLIGHTS: What were 1–2 important highlights of the past quarter? (These may include successes, challenges, lessons learned.)

  • "Meet Wikipedia" at the Architecture and design center.
  • Lots of media attention on our edit-a-thons for women.

WIKI-FOCUS: What Wikimedia projects was your entity focused on (e.g., Wiki Commons, French Wiktionary) this quarter?

  • Swedish and Luganda Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Swedish Wikiversity.

GROWTH: How did your entity grow over the past quarter vs. the previous quarter (e.g., Number of active editors reached/involved/added, number of articles created, number of events held, number of partipants reached through workshops)?

  • Media files uploaded helped by chapter resources: 195
  • Media viewed: 7,898,272
  • Persons engaged in workshops and seminars: 161
  • Persons reached in presentations: 492
  • Number of events held (edit-a-thons, workshops, seminars, presentations): 29
  • New chapter members: 23 (total 218)
  • New likes on Facebook page: 98 (Total 899)

Financial summary[edit]

The FDC requires information about how your entity received and spent money over the past year. The FDC distributes general funds, so your entity is not required to use funds exactly as outlined in the proposal. While line-item expenses will not be examined, the FDC and movement wants to understand why the entity spent money in the way it did. If variance in budgeted vs. actual is greater than 20%, please provide explanation in more detail. This helps the FDC understand the rationale behind any significant changes. Note that any changes from the Grant proposal, among other things, must be consistent with the WMF mission, must be for charitable purposes as defined in the grant agreement, must be reported to WMF, and must otherwise comply with the grant agreement. The WMF mission is "to empower and engage people around the world to collect and develop educational content under a free license or in the public domain, and to disseminate it effectively and globally."

Lessons learned[edit]

Lessons from this quarter[edit]

A key objective of the funding is to enable the movement as a whole to understand how to achieve shared goals better and faster. An important way of doing this is to identify lessons learned from entities who receive funds, and to share these lessons across the movement. The purpose of this section is to elicit some of these insights, which will be shared throughout the movement. Please answer the following questions in 1–2 paragraphs each.

What were your major accomplishments in the past quarter, and how did you help to achieve movement goals?

  • Our strong partnership that culminated in the “Meet Wikipedia” campaign together with The Architecure and design center was a major accomplishment. It did not only give us a way to meet the public, but more important it was a statement from their side that we are a very important player, and it sent a signal to many other GLAMs that will open up for several new partnerships.

What were your major setbacks in the past quarter (e.g., programs that were not successful)?

  • No major setbacks in the past quarter. Something that we do think about is what expectations we should have on showup in comparison to number of replies for an event we have. When we have events on Facebook, the turnup have sometimes been quite low. If someone had a learning pattern on what to expect, or to keep the ratio of signup to turnup as high as possible it would be appreciated.

What factors (organizational, environmental) enabled your success?

  • At this moment, we feel that one of our big beneficial factors is that we have been aroudn for quite a while, with a staff big enough to handle unsolicitied requests on quite short notice. This has been quite a good way to cultivate new contacts that grow into stable partnerships.

What unanticipated challenges did you encounter and how did this affect what you were able to accomplish?

  • No unanticipated challenges showed up in Q1.

What changes might you make in executing your initiatives into the next quarter?

  • No major changes are expected, we continue on our plan.
