Questionnaire for community feedback on taxonomy of knowledge gaps
Closed, ResolvedPublic


During Q1 we will communicate the taxonomy of knowledge gaps to different communities and affiliates.
One of the main motivations is to get feedback to improve the taxonomy in a further iteration.
For this we want to develop a questionnaire to provide context and guide the discussion.

  • develop a set of questions
  • develop a format (google-forms, meta-talk page)

Update week 2020-07-27:

@MGerlach thanks for the update. Something that we didn't discuss and it's good to do before finalizing the questionnaire is to put the questions in front of a set of test responders and ask them to give us feedback on the questions. Let's include this cycle. I have a few internal/external candidates in mind. (We will need to give folks a week for getting back to us.) What do you think?

@MGerlach here is my update based on the work we started doing together today:

  • I sent the email to folks who gave us feedback for improving the questionnaire and gave them the update about what changes went to effect. You're cc-ed on that.
  • Re preparing a 1-pager: I debated about putting an FAQ like page on meta or not. I'm landed with: let's not put it on meta. The readability of content on meta is hard for me and I'm guessing I'm not the only one. :) I put the draft in overleaf. It's not done. Feel free to work on it on Monday, or I pick it up on Tuesday. (I passed the early parts of it through the
  • I updated the meta page with the updated framing that came from the intro part of the survey. This is done for the most part except that it needs a couple of link fixes or anything else you want to fix. I passed it through the Hemingway App, too. (@Isaac fyi)

What I still have in my todo:

  • preparing the staff email
  • finalizing the 1-pager.

@leila I did a pass on the 1-pager on overleaf, specifically:

  • added and re-ordered some of the high-level questions; also added some comments on questions I would not add
  • formatted the tables for the indivivual dimensions such that each dimension is a one separate page starting with short introduction and then the table

Feel free to move things or edit/revert.

@MGerlach I'm going to resolve this task given the questionnaire itself is ready. I'll make the marginal improvements in the doc and we can post today/tomorrow.
