Learning and Evaluation/Evaluation reports
In 2013, the Wikimedia Foundation began an initiative to build capacity around evaluation. This initiative would lead to a greater understanding of the incredible work that Wikimedia organizations and individual volunteers are conducting around the globe to increase content on Wikimedia projects. The reports below document this evaluation and program work that continues to grow each year.
We actively seek feedback from the Wikimedia community about these reports and make sure to host on-wiki discussions. Please feel free to leave any comments in the talk page.
