Weekly report for Automatic editing suggestions and feedbacks for articles in Wiki Ed Dashboard
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Project Synopsis

The Wiki Ed Dashboard / Programs & Events Dashboard is a Ruby on Rails + Javascript application that helps people organize groups of newcomers to contribute to Wikipedia. This project aims to use ORES (Objective Revision Evaluation Service) to provide specific useful editing suggestions to newcomers about how they can improve existing Wikipedia articles or article drafts they are working on. This can give an idea of what kind of improvements are needed for the article and gives them a jumpstart in their contributions

Final Summary

  • After the project, an Automatic feedback feature is successfully included in the Wiki-Ed dashboard that is shown in the MyArticles component that shows the articles edited by a particular user and also shows them in the Articles Edited Section for the suggestion to be reviewed by instructors.
  • There is a feature for users to add their own suggestions on the edits in addition to the Automatic Feedback.
  • Adding an easy way for users to give feedback on this feature.
  • Even if the Automatic Suggestions couldn’t be made smarter as part of my project I hope the work done to document the ORES features would encourage such improvements.
  • Making a spreadsheet of the ORES suggestions pointed to some blatant errors in ORES predictions due to redirects and the issue is notified in this task.

Next Steps

  • I couldn’t contribute to making the Automatic Suggestions smarter as I lacked some experience with Wikipedia Editing and this is a major scope of improvement for the project.
  • Adding the feature for custom user suggestions on the edits in the Article-Viewer component where it could be more relevant.
