RESOLUTION:  Accept clean portion of the proposal as our recommendation for the larger group

The subgroup working on Protocols as Evaluation Procedures completed our drafting which can be found at:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1W_5H0MCoKzGaD9XCxgzdqZ-1TiVCXHVipE_vNnG2DOQ
Please stop reading at the horizontal rule and the H2 of "Notes and Outdated Proposals"

Next week, 5/27 8:00 am Boston, is a combined meeting of the two Protocols subgroup.  The main agenda item next week is for each subgroup to share their work with the other, and starts plans for a report back to AGWG.

The Points for Protocols document can be found at:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1UgoMz3OPyoEVLbU4uCU5F5K6aEM7E1rii6oCaWqQy50

Minutes are available at:  https://www.w3.org/2022/05/20-wcag3-protocols-minutes.html
Please note that most references to AGWG were meant to be the larger combined protocols group.

There is quite a bit more to the "clean portion of the proposal" but follows are the four bullets from the definition:


  *   Protocols provide evaluable procedures to meet Outcomes in WCAG 3 where the outcomes are not necessarily measured.  We can measure qualitative tests without using protocols and those are defined as methods in WCAG 3.  Where protocols are useful are in measuring and evaluating processes and outcomes that are difficult or unable to be measured with methods.  (Example: plainlanguage.gov<https://www.plainlanguage.gov/> mostly provides the guidance about how to achieve an accessibility outcome; Department of Labor site<https://www.dol.gov/general/plainwriting> provides a protocol that references that guidance, specifies steps to make sure the guidance is followed, and measures how successfully those steps are being followed.)
  *   A protocol is a document written by an organization who wishes to meet a WCAG 3 outcome that allows use of protocols.  The protocol must meet specific outcome-level requirements, which will be outlined in WCAG 3 for each outcome that allows use of protocols. (To be decided: We expect that not all outcomes will allow use of protocols.)
  *   Protocols describe inputs such as documentation of steps, actions taken, date completed, conformance claims, etc. but do not necessarily measure outcomes. Where the outcome is less directly measured, the protocol must define a way to evaluate the quality of its implementation, which is expected to correlate to conformance with an accessibility outcome.
  *   W3C expects to document some protocols but expects wide use of public self-defined protocols. W3C sets requirements for protocols that are used as part of WCAG 3 conformance.

Hi all,

Just wanted to reach out to let you know that there won't be a larger meeting this week, but that the Evaluating Procedures group will still be meeting.

The Evaluating Procedures sub-group made good progress on filling out the details for protocols, but think rough edges still need to be addressed before discussion with the larger group. They would like to use this Friday's noon meeting for the same breakout purpose, and hopefully present the week after that.


Evaluating Procedures Meeting:
The meeting will be on Friday, May 20th at 12:00pm EST.

Meeting info:
The Zoom teleconference data is provided at this link: https://www.w3.org/events/meetings/f828eba1-cf1d-44ce-b68e-b22406b25ae1/20220422T120000

We will be on IRC using the W3C server at https://irc.w3.org, in channel #wcag3-protocols

Where to find more information:
These and additional details of our work, including minutes, current, and archived draft documents are available on our subgroup wiki page here: https://github.com/w3c/silver/wiki/Protocols
If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you!
