UPDATED: Community of Practice Values

Hi Everyone,

So John tweeted the following at me today, “@WallsDouglas Is there a way that we can see the individual ratings for our wiki articles? I’d like to know which ones I was doing right.” which I thought was a great idea. Not only does it give you, as the community of practice, a notion of which of your entries other people responded to but let’s you see which one of your individual entries the class responded best to. Make sure to look at those entries that scored 4.5 and above. What did those authors do? How can revise the entries that you are curating to make the same moves? As we move to curation, that sort of information becomes increasingly valuable.

So here is a list of chapters with the class “average” score ranked next to them.

UPDATE: Here are the things that we as a class said we would add to each entry as curators:
