Cohort analysis of Wikimedia editors
Wikimetrics is a webtool (formerly known as UserMetrics) designed to simplify the measurement of on-site user activity based on a set of standardized metrics. Using this tool, different metrics can be selected and applied to an arbitrarily defined group of users (called a cohort) to measure their overall productivity, retention, quantity and quality of wiki work. The platform is language- and project-agnostic (it can retrieve data from any Wikimedia project), extensible (adding new metrics, modifying metric parameters) and designed to make data collection for various types of cohort analysis and program evaluation more user-friendly.
