(FOR PROGRAM MANAGERS)

Cohort

A cohort is defined as a private group of users within a program who must connect within their group and whose participation data is measured together, separate from the whole. Cohorts can be overlapping and defined by city, language, interests, etc. or they can be sequential in the case each cohort has a set order to hold sessions.

Tag

A tag is a useful way to label a type of user as well as filter who they can and cannot connect with. If a user’s tag is filtering, they would only be able to connect with same-tag users. If the tag is strictly for labeling purposes, then users with a labelling tag can connect with any tagged user. A tagged user may be within or outside of a cohort.


Examples

1) Use cohorts OR tags to define a group of users

Data for same-cohort or same-tag users is counted together.

Note: In this case, cohorts and tags serve the same purpose, however, only tags can be used to filter and/or publicly label users.


2) Use cohorts and tags together to define a group of users and their sub-groups

Data can be counted by cohorts and by tags:

Example: There is a single classroom (Cohort) of 40 students, where students are grouped together based on different criteria.

Tag 1 → Math students,

Tag 2 → Science students,

Tag 3 → Arts students.

Each type of student will have their data counted among same-type students.



3) Use different cohorts and same tags within each cohort

Data for each cohort can be counted as a whole OR data for each same tag within each cohort can be counted together as a whole:

Example: There are 3 different classrooms of 40, 40, and 35 students, where students are grouped together based on different criteria.

Tag 1 → Math students,

Tag 2 → Science students,

Tag 3 → Arts students.

Each type of student data can either be considered separately within their classroom (Cohort) or may be combined with other Math students from other classrooms, for total data count.

You can also select one or many cohorts and one or more same tags to compare data. i.e. Cohort 1 + Cohort 2

OR

Cohort 1 + Tag 1 + Cohort 2 + Tag 1 (leaving out Cohort 3)

4) Multiple cohorts for multiple users

If you have users that you would like to group into multiple cohorts, this is also possible. This means that data for those users will be counted within the cohorts they are a part of.

Example: Math students in classroom A (Cohort A) also participate in activities with classroom B (Cohort B). The data of their participation can be counted per classroom and totalled for all classrooms they are a part of.
