Operational

Measures and targets table[edit | edit source]

In this operational table, each of the measures listed defines a Key Performance Indicator (KPI) for the charity, and will be tracked and reported on quarterly. All KPIs that can realistically have numerical targets should have them. Some KPIs can be measured numerically but not realistically targeted, while yet others are amenable only to a best-judgement evaluation (that we call an 'eval score') or are qualitatively assessed using a narrative. Narratives are useful in addition to hard numbers as they enable us to 'tell the story' of our impact.

The various KPIs for each Outcome, when taken together, can give us a qualitative indication of what the charity's impact is against each Outcome.

See below for referenced definitions [n].

See Strategy monitoring plan/Outcomes 2014-15 for links to the quarterly published KPI reports in 2014-15 activity year.

Notes and Definitions[edit | edit source]

Ref Term Definition
To do
Notes
(1) Positive edit size Sum of edit sizes in characters where text content has been added overall to the mainspace of a Wikimedia wiki. We are here measuring quantity not quality of educational text content. We ignore all edits where content has been deleted overall, on the basis that deletions cannot generally be equated with the negative addition of content by that editor. We are aware that such an approach is relatively broad-brush, and will actively seek improved tools/measures in this area.
(2) Institution reputation rating Our estimate of the external reputation of each GLAM, education organisation or learned society that we work with. This information is solely to enable us to track our own charitable impact consistently, and we will not be publishing the values we use for individual organisations

(12) Awareness score To be defined Questions to be written Proposed survey to be repeated annually by WMUK
(13) Shared activity units A count of the number of units contributed by volunteers (not necessarily WMUK volunteers) on shared activities (14) With technology-based groups or organisations having similar goals to WMUK
(14) Shared activities Activities that WMUK jointly lead with some other group Does not include activities run by other groups that WMUK volunteers or staff simply attend or engage with. Depending on context, the other group could be Wikimedia-related (eg a chapter) or could be external to the Wikimedia movement (eg OpenStreetMaps)
(15) Uses of tools The number of times in aggregate a WMUK tool is used.
(16) Eval measure A best-judgement evaluation on a scale of 1 to 5 (5=best) Used in lieu of a objective metric where such a metric is impossible or currently impracticable to obtain
