What problem does this solve?Edit
This learning pattern describes how to collect data on the global metric for number of newly registered users for a program, project, or event.
What is the solution?Edit
- New accounts created is an editor who has created a new account as a result of a project up to two weeks before an event.
- In-person or Face to face events - Events that happen in real time in physical presence (i.e. 10 people in the same room)
- Online events, which could be anything from a contest, to an international editathon, to experimental projects like the Wikipedia Adventure or the Teahouse.
How to measureEdit
|1. Get usernames|
|2. Review Wikimetrics Learning Module and Upload your Cohort|
|3. In Wikimetrics, Create a report to determine "Newly Registered Users"|
