Metrics and results overview - all programs
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 Grant Metrics. We understand not all Grant or grantee-defined Metrics will be relevant for all programs, so feel free to put "0" where necessary. For each program include the following table and
- Next to each required metric, list the outcome/results achieved for all of your programs included in your proposal.
- Where necessary, explain the context behind your outcome.
- 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 Grant Metrics.
|METRIC AND RESULTS OVERVIEW||A. EDUcation Program||B. Multimedia Programs||C. Wikidata & TECH programy||Achieved outcome||Explanation|
|1. number of total participants||720||61||239||1020||EDU: in comparison to overall benchmark of 375 for the entire year, we are at the moment way above the set nr.
MG+WPC: We have 13 active photographers in MG activity and 1 in WPC activity. We didn't achieve 5 active users of WPC, because of its postponing. We didn't set the goal for Mediagrant. We have decided not to develop this activity further. GLAM: Two editathons in which participated 48 persons. Mid-term aim (20) fulfilled. Wikidata/Tech: Most of these were Wikimedia Hackathon participants, other events were less participant-heavy.
|2. number of newly registered users||270||30||3||303||EDU: By the time of mid-term evaluation, we are close to reach the amount set for entire year, which was established at the level 280.
MG+WPC: Mediagrant hasn't been attracting almost any new people last years. Moreover, the original members are leaving the movement (29 of them were active last year). It was one of the reasons for creating WCP activity, which should be more welcoming for photographers. We didn't achieve the planned amount of 5 new users for the first half a year, because of postponing WPC. GLAM: to turm focus of our editathons on beginners became a profitable strategy, 30 people is much more than we imagined. The aim was 15. Wikidata/Tech: We don't focus much on educating new editors at the moment, which can be seen in the low number of newly registered. Most new Wikidata enthusiasts had already edited Wikimedia projects before.
|3. number of content pages created or improved, across all Wikimedia projects||1791||20375||46676||68842||EDU: The overall nr. consists of content pages from Wikipedias, Wikidata and Images from Wikipedia Commons in total. The overall nr. for the year was set on the level of 2610, so by mid-term, we are already above half of the quorum.
MG+WPC: Nr. consists of new or edited WP, WD and WC pages. We haven't achieved the goal of 5,000 content pages because of postponing WPC. GLAM: Nr. consists of new WC and new or edited WP pages. Special thanks to the Prague City Hall's donation, which considerably have exceeded the mid-term aim set at 5,000. Wikidata/Tech: Certainly, robotic tools enable to reach great numbers of content pages edited. Most were either "authority items" of the National Library, Bibliography of Czech History database or small heritage items.
|4. Number of active GLAM cooperations||34||9||14||57||EDU: Universities (6), (high)schools (3), Libraries (8), NGOs (4), Foundations (2), professional networks/guilds (6), Others (5)
GLAM: U.S. Embassy, American center, Embassy od Sweden, Embassy of Canada, Goethe-Institut in Prague, Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague City Hall, Prague Zoo Advocacy: IuRe, EduIn Wikidata/Tech: National Technical Library, National Library, Faculty of Math and Physics, DrobnePamatky database, Krizky a Vetrelci database, University of Palacky in Olomouc, Wikiskripta, TDKIV database, Pamet naroda database, Library database of the National Library, National Heritage Institute, Prazdnedomy database, Bibliography of Czech Lands database, Czechitas
|5. Number of events||32||2||3||37||EDU: Training cycle SePW (6 lectures), Training cycle Librarians (3 courses/lectures), Tech (with) Wiki, Wikiclubs, festivals, lecturers meet up
GLAM: editathons WikiGap and Shared Cities in Prague Wikidata/Tech: Wikimedia Hackathon, Wikidata workshop, Wikiskripta lecture
|OTHER PROGRAM METRICː||A. EDUcation Program||B. Multimedia Programs||C. Wikidata & TECH programy|
|6. Bytes added (edu)||1870490||EDU: bytes added from all educational events except wikiclubs, since Wiki Education Dashboard is not use to measure wikiclubs.|
|7. Mediagrant+WPC: Number of files used on Wikimedia projects (Distinct files used)||1533||It means the distinct files on Wikimedia Commons used in at least one Wikimedia projects.|
|8. WPC: Number of newly illustrated Wikidata items||229|
|9. Number of gained and on Commons uploaded files within the GLAM cooperation||6817|
|10. Number of GLAM files used on Wikipedia (Total files used)||144||Total number of usage of files gained within GLAM cooperations in all the Wikimedia projects.|
|11. Number of GLAM institutions, that response to our contact||8||Our plan is to regularly address the Czech institutions. This number represents nr. of institutions which responded (regardless of their interest).|
Telling your program stories - all programs
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.

Resources to plan for measurement
- Global metrics are an important starting point for grantees when it comes to measuring programmatic impact (Learning Patterns and Tutorial) but don’t stop there.
- Logic Models provide a framework for mapping your pathway to impact through the cause and effect chain from inputs to outputs to outcomes. Develop a logic model to map out your theory of change and determine the metrics and measures for your programs.
- Importantly, both qualitative and quantitative measures are important so consider both as you determine measures for your evaluation and be sure to ask the right questions to be sure to capture your program stories.
