Eric: sent round info thid morning
15:07:25 [Detlev]
15:07:30 [Sarah_Swierenga]
15:07:54 [shadi]
Detlev: thought we agreed to have controlled test run
15:08:07 [shadi]
...and additionally people to evaluate other websites
15:08:23 [shadi]
...but now it looks like we are all doing one website
15:09:44 [shadi]
...confused about this change
15:09:47 [Detlev]
Detlev: explains his understanding

Eric: explains his understandign (first the one site, later more)
15:10:29 [shadi]
ack sarah
15:10:47 [Detlev]
Sarah: one survey for the one identifed site, another one for open evaluations
15:10:48 [Zakim]
15:11:03 [Detlev]
Sarah: survwey just for the one werbsite?
15:11:11 [Detlev]
Eric: yes, at the moment
15:11:51 [Detlev]
Eric: could remove name of site from survey
15:11:51 [shadi]
zakim, ipcaller is richard
15:11:51 [Zakim]
+richard; got it
15:11:56 [EricVelleman]
15:11:56 [shadi]
15:12:01 [Detlev]
I would prefer that
15:12:02 [shadi]
ack me
15:12:18 [Sarah_Swierenga]
+1 to generic survey for other websites
15:12:21 [Sarah_Swierenga]
15:12:29 [Detlev]
Shadi: prefers not to have the chosen werbsite named in public
15:13:14 [Detlev]
Shadi: two versions: one only for the group, send urls off-list; another general public survey
15:14:06 [Detlev]
Shadi: remove link from our survey, provide URL off-list
15:14:22 [Detlev]
Eric: why
15:14:55 [richard]
I agree with Shadi
15:15:03 [Detlev]
Shadi: people should not get hung up that we evaluated this particvular website - the important thing is feedback on methodology
15:15:43 [Detlev]
Sarah: As long as survey is distributed just to the group there is no concern on behalf of MSU
15:16:19 [Detlev]
Sarah: A second generic version for the testerun for the wider public
15:16:31 [Detlev]
Eric: put EVAL TF survey bwehind password?
15:16:37 [Detlev]
Sarah: would work
15:17:05 [Detlev]
Shadi: Link was already circulated, people can identify the site
15:17:35 [Detlev]
Sarah: having two surveys helps
15:17:59 [Detlev]
Eric: EVAL TF has and avantage
15:18:13 [Detlev]
Eric: otheer comments?
15:19:02 [Detlev]
Eric: specifc evaluation for the EVAL TF group only, remove referecne to site, make survey password protected?
15:19:04 [EricVelleman]
15:19:40 [Detlev]
Sarah: It's ben okeyed that survey with reference to URL can be sent to trusted evaluators (also beyond EVAL TF)
15:20:19 [Liz]
15:20:34 [Sarah_Swierenga]
+1 to relaunching the 4-H survey with a password
15:20:36 [MoeKraft]
15:20:43 [richard]
15:20:54 [Detlev]
Eric: will close current survey, put out new survey where evaluator
15:20:56 [Detlev]
15:21:07 [MaryJo]
15:21:26 [Detlev]
Shadi: Will you remove link from Survey?
15:21:52 [Detlev]
Eric: Yes - link to survey can stand, URL IN survey will be removed.
15:22:18 [Detlev]
Shadi: Needs modified message to tel people that they can pick their own website for evaluaton
15:23:09 [Detlev]
Eric: The survey for the specific evaluation will be sent to EVSAL TF members plus selected evaluators - reference to site will be sent off-list
15:23:35 [Detlev]
Eric: there is no harm because the output of the evaluation will not be publicly visible
15:24:04 [shadi]
15:24:04 [Detlev]
Shadi: even though, we will talk about resulats later - better not to have too much info in public space on specific sites
15:24:08 [MartijnHoutepen]
15:24:24 [Detlev]
Eric: will make changes after this call
15:24:42 [Detlev]
Eric: any mire comments?
15:25:34 [Detlev]
Detlev: give a rationale for picking a range of sites
15:25:50 [Detlev]
Eric: not many other topics
15:25:53 [Sarah_Swierenga]

15:29:28 [Zakim]

15:30:05 [Detlev]
Shadi: any other thing you find important?
15:30:08 [Detlev]
15:30:11 [Detlev]
ack me
15:30:54 [shadi]
Detlev: from going through the techniques, it seems that several are quite out of date
15:31:08 [shadi] does this impact WCAG-EM
15:32:02 [Detlev]
Shadi: WCAG WG will publish techniques more regularly in the future
15:32:27 [Detlev]
Shadi: Techniques are just advisory, focus is on SC
15:35:28 [Detlev]
Mentioning that WCAG-EM, leaving the how-to-evaluate up to evaluators, might set a realistic expectatino level in the text itself
15:35:40 [Detlev]
Eric: good point for the agrnda
15:36:30 [Detlev]
Eric: Group comments in dsposition of comments, then think of answers
15:36:47 [Detlev]
Shadi: important for prioritization
15:37:22 [Detlev]
Shadi: will work on comments to make it easier to tacke
15:37:32 [Detlev]
15:37:43 [Detlev]
When is the deadline?
15:38:40 [Detlev]
Eric: project deadline is passed
15:39:28 [Detlev]
Test-run work after publishng the note, possibly
15:39:43 [Detlev]
Shadi: deadline for testrun is 10 April
15:40:23 [Detlev]
Shadi: test run may change recommendations
15:41:14 [EricVelleman]
15:41:35 [Detlev]
Shadi: process the resutls of test run until end of April
15:41:37 [MartijnHoutepen]
q- de
15:41:50 [Detlev]
Publication end of May
15:41:54 [Detlev]
Detlev: as draft
15:42:22 [Detlev]
Shadi: depends on comments - if there is need for substantial changes int may delay finalisation
15:42:43 [Detlev]
Shadi: there are hints that oveerall WCAG-EM is on the right track
15:45:11 [Detlev]
Detlev: wondering if further work wil be done on it, and how it is funded
15:45:29 [Detlev]
Shadi: wortk was chartered to lead to a WG note, and that is it for the moment
15:46:09 [Detlev]
No plan to publish the note of the public notes and test run results, final note wil include this feedback
15:46:21 [Detlev]
That was Shadi
15:46:46 [Detlev]
Shadi: hopes that by end of May work will be finished.... :-)
15:47:26 [Detlev]
