June 2021 Quarterly Report

kasahorow defines a number of measures to track progress monthly across the languages we work on. We recently simplified some of these measures. For each language, these measures now include:

  1. How often the dictionary is used: more than 4000 dictionary entries looked up at least 4 times.
  2. Growing the dictionary: more than 1000 words are imported and labeled with the correct word class.
  3. Reaching new users through Sua emails: more than 10 Sua emails are sent to at least 50 readers.
  4. Addressing feedback: at least 1 piece of user quality feedback is addressed.
  5. Song reviews: At least 10 song reviews on the kasahorow site have at least 50 readers.
  6. Anokwale news: At least 10 news pieces on the kasahorow site have more than 50 readers.
  • The total performance on these measures for March 2021 was $4,961.65.
  • The total performance on these measures for June 2021 was $6,173.65.
  • This means that there was a 24.4% increase in performance over the quarter (up from a 13% increase the previous quarter).
