Global metrics overview - all programsEdit

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.

Telling your program stories - all programsEdit

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.

Program 1: CommunityEdit

Community program against its targets
Target Last year (if applicable) Progress (at end of Q2) Projected (end of year) Comments
Organising Viquitrobada 2016, Catalan Wikimedians AGM 2015 edition
November 2016 Preparing 2016 edition. We have venue confirmed & booked & now are preparing programme & guest speakers. Is not Amical's AGM but community's AGM.
4 formative seminars for Wikimedians Seminars done during Viquitrobada 2015
4 We failed in organizing internal workshops for wikimedians
Following each volunteer driven activity 2015 APG impact report
100% We've been following all volunteer proposals so far this year (e.g:Barcelona ComiCon, Temps de Flors...)
Community grants Wikimania 2016 & Temps de Flors Girona
90% We've funded 5 grants for Wikimania 2016, Temps de Flors Girona and all community led writing challenges.
Community care program evaluation
Successes (so far) Challenges (so far) Learnings (so far)
  • 500K: We wanted to reach 500k articles before cawiki 15th anniversary, so we organized a challenge since Jan-1. Lot of social media, daily stats, kudos to most actives, organised teams... and we did it! We almost doubled activity of the wiki. +info & here
  • Viquitrobada 2016: our annual meeting is the most important Catalan Wikimedians meeting. This year (again) we got the venue for free thanks to our collaboration with a GLAM partner. It will take place in 12-13th November. info
  • Wikimania 2016: This year we funded travels to 5 community members, leaders of GLAM, research, local & gender projects. Public reports to come.
  • Volunter led writing challenges have increased this year. They are easy to organise and scale. Examples: Barcelona Comic Con, Barcelona Film Week, Catalan poetry, Women editathons... hundreds of articles created.
  • Viquidones: We've put big efforts in trying to reduce gender gap in cawiki. In collaboration with Wikimujeres and Wikimedia Spain we have run several activities, online challenges and workshops. It is clearly the core topic of the year.
  • Community care: We keep taking care of the community mood. The Number of conflicts on Catalan Wikis is almost null. This is due to a 1:1 relationship and listening to community members needs.
  • Post-momentum: During the 1s trimester we had a momentum putting lots of effort in reaching the 500K on cawiki, and we did it. It is a challenge to keep the momentum after a special effort is done.
  • Microgrants: So far only 1 micro-grant proposal is presented on our community. It was approved.
  • Internal communication channels: New tools and platforms like Whatsapp or Telegram or social media platforms are increasingly becoming communication spaces for community members. Talk pages and IRC are losing frequency of use. We need to find a better way to make sure that everyone's in and everyone feels confortable with different levels and spaces for internal communication, and also that important information is available for everyone interested.
  • Affiliates Collaboration: As said, we have improved the amount and quality of collaboration with other affiliates, specially Wikimedia Spain and Wikimujeres, but also the Basque Wikimedians, Wikimedia MX, FR & UK and other affiliates via online participating on their activities. It takes time to leverage assumptions and expectactions but we are happy with the results so far.
  • Sharing model via the Education collab, GLAMWiki, OPenGLAM groups and attending to conferences we are learning to better share our model, but there is still a lot of way for improvement.

New Mindset on knowledge sector N/A
100% We have published papers on reference magazines. Contacted key members in both cultural and educational sector. It is a mid term investment but we are already seing some results


Education program evaluation
Successes (so far) Challenges (so far) Learnings (so far)
  • Papers: One of our goals this year is to be recognised as a trustee discourse agent among both the institutional and the educational sector. We have increased our participation in other orgs conferences and events, and we are particularly happy with the number of scientific papers, publictions or blog posts that we have collaborated with, with institutions like CCCB (Contemporary Culture Center in Barcelona), National Library of Andorra, Catalan language official Terminology center, Vall Hebron Hospital, Pompeu Fabra University. Another success for us is that these papers not only talk about Wikipedia but also about Wikidata, WikiCommons or Catalan Wiktionary, giving voice to sister projects.
  • Number of projects: With 55 educational projects run so far during the year 2015-2016, more than 1,400 students and almost 2,000 articles improved, we can state that the strategy is being a success. Some teachers are already planning the wiki projects without our help, like it happened with the librarians.
  • Multilingual: We have increased the number of students that are writing about Catalan culture in other language wikis, thanks to a partnership with Institut Ramon Llull, which has agreements with international universities where Catalan is taught (from US to Japan). We will try to boost these kind of collaborations. We are also better at dealing with international students coming to Barcelona.
  • 100% of Catalan speaking universities: We still haven't reached all Catalan speaking Universities, sometimes due to a lack of a trusted entry contact point.
  • Scaling: We are still drafting plans on how to better scale educational projects without burning out the community, specially on end of term periods, where there is a rush of new users editing Wikipedia to finish their assignment. As we have a mid-size wiki, sometimes we have some edition bottlenecks
  • Retention:Retention of student users is a big challenge we need to think how to better face it.
  • Reaching the key contacts: So far we use a botom up strategy to start collaborating with educational institutions. When we try to get in touch with Deans or similar positions to get a wider reach, we fail. We are trying to get in touch with key edu sector figures to solve this challenge.
  • Mid term relationship with teachers after a couple of semesters gets a lot better once they reach the end of their wiki learning curve
  • Adapting courses to keep commitment for teachers and students. In some schools we need to rethink which topics should students work in or changing the assignment in order to maintain the engagement levels in both students and teachers.
  • Better explaining ourselves in educational sector. After these years we are starting to better leverage our projects among teaching professionals.

Program 3: Core ProjectsEdit

Community suggested & innovation program evaluation
Successes (so far) Challenges (so far) Learnings (so far)
  • Half a milion milestone: We did a huge campaign with community to reach this milestone before our 15th anniversary… and we did it! Very proud of it.
  • Wikiprojects and Online contests: The volunteer community sees us as a problem solver and a facilitator. Lots of Wikiprojects (see detailed list) are managed directly by volunteers. We facilitate small awards and spread the word on our social media channels.
  • Catalan Terminology Center: We have a long term partnership with the catalan terminology center. They are releasing dictionaries for Wiktionaire and we have also submitted a joint paper to an International Terimonology conference.
  • Bibliowikis: Our libraries project keeps expanding and we have reached 200 public libraries collaboratiing with Wikipedia
  • Modernism in Wikidata: we keep developing a partnership with University of Barcelona where a former Wikipedian in Residence leads a Wikidata Wikiproject on Modernisme (Catalan Version of Art Nouveau: Gaudí, Sagrada Família…) the project is improving items and statements of Modernisme artworks, which are currently spread in online databases throughout the Internet (and even offline sources). This project is inspired by WikiProject Sum of all paintings, where we are collaborating with a couple of museum databases.
  • Wikipedian in Residence: We have a new wikipedian in residence in València city, at the local etnology museum.
  • Modernism in Wikidata:The amount of work dealing with databases before uploading them to Wikidata is much bigger than expected.
  • Wikiloves X: Wiki loves contests are calling less atention both from media and from community members. Still need to figure out how to prepare similar contests.
  • The Wikipedia Library: Although fully translated, the project did not have a big welcome among Catalan wikimedians. They like it, but they don't use it as expected.
  • Renewing key members: With volunteer led projects (writing challenges, editathons…) a new group of leaders is emerging in Amical Wikimedia. These are good news for our mid term sustainability as a group.
