What problem does this solve?[edit]

It is not easy for a trainer, teaching a lot of trainees in Wikipedia, to have supervision of what they have heared, used, learned or forgotten. Teaching cannot evolve without evaluation.

What is the solution?[edit]

Start with simple self-evaluation for each trainee on topics, in private (=not on Wikipedia). Use hovering help on every topic if possible, to help trainees with resumption. Use a database to store. Evaluate over the self evaluation (having tracked topics teached, dates, trainers, trainees present). Use rubricks1234 for higher level evaluation. Push developers to make such tools for use with user accounts participating in education programs.

Use Visualeditor on table below, copy (ctrl+c) , paste (ctrl+v) and delete (del) stars to see how it feels like in wiki.

Things to consider[edit]

  • Table above is only a simple example of self evaluation on topics, not to be really used as is.
  • Some topics might seem unneeded but have to be there to give positive feeling to trainee.
