The committee reviewed the results of the PALS Plus wiki survey that was conducted from Monday, March 20 to Friday, March 31. A total of 48 responses to four questions were received from directors and staff. As the survey was anonymous it is not possible to determine who responded.
Of the responses that were received to the question: “Are you happy with the PALS Plus wiki?”
18 (37.5%) said yes
25 (50%) said no
6 (12.5%) said “what wiki?”
The final question, “How easy to use do you find the PALS Plus wiki?” received the following responses:
Very easy 3 (6.7%)
Easy 13 (28.9%)
Neutral 19 (42.2%)
Difficult 9 (20%)
Very Difficult 3 (6.7%)
The vast majority of the meeting involved the committee looking over the responses of the survey. The responses were categorized into the following categories:
Notifications, Awareness, Wiki Structure/Design, Currency of Information, Organization, Access, Social, (Statistics, Policies, Minutes/Agendas). We then went through the responses and decided in what category a response best fit and if it was a negative or positive response.
Notifications: 3 positive / 4 negative
Awareness: 2 positive / 13 negative
Structure: 7 positive / 41 negative
Information: 3 positive / 18 negative
Organization: 8 positive / 35 negative

Discussion then focused on what to do with the first survey results and planning for the next survey. For the next meeting the members will look over the first survey’s results and discuss their interpretations of the responses. The committee will also work on next survey to find out what do directors and staff need.
