Review user satisfaction work
Open, LowPublic



One of the Discovery team's KPIs, and a crucial goal for this quarter, is measuring user satisfaction with search. We've started thinking about implicit measures for doing this and how we might validate them. We would really appreciate it if Halfak, with his background in session reconstruction work and understanding our users, could take a look at our proposed hypothesis around where we might go about measuring user satisfaction with search. The documentation is at

In particular we're looking for:

  1. Does this seem viable?
  2. If not (or even if so!) what can you suggest to improve it?
  3. What should we be thinking about that we're not?

This shouldn't take more than a few hours - although obviously I'd also love for this to expand into an active collaboration on the data analysis and hypothesis testing, if Halfak concludes there's stuff in this project that makes sense for research to be thinking about and benefits the systems we're building.

@Ironholds, I lost this task for a while and re-found it. Still interested in a review?

Absolutely! Right now we're about to kick off a survey to provide qualitative data to test the model against, so it might be most useful for you to get involved when we have that data (unless you want to review the methodology beforehand, of course)

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!
