Okay, here are the daily user counts, VE session counts, sessions/user rates, and edit completion (success) rates:

Key takeaways from the analysis:

  • No clear change in sessions/user
    • The average number of sessions per user was 1.94 in the control group and 1.948 in the treatment group; this change was not statistically significant
    • We're good to keep section editing on without worrying that it may negatively impact this metric
  • Clear improvement in completion rate
    • There was statistically significant (p-value = 0.034) improvement of 0.98% (in probability of completion) on average
    • This roughly translates to 1 more completed VE edit for every 100 started if section editing is enabled than if it's not; or, viewed in another way, 1 fewer abandoned VE edit for every 100 started

@ppelberg: My analysis of the data suggests that we should do a full rollout of section editing on mobile VE :D

We will be turning off the A/B test and rolling out Section Editing to all mobile VE today. See: T225645#5259886
