In this experiment, a simple progress bar was added to a 2nd step of contract cancellation funnel. The progress bar used separate styles to show which steps were completed, what the current step was, as well as the future step.

Translation of the 3 steps from German are as follows:

1. Fill out the termination
2. Send termination
3. Proof of termination

For each pattern, we measure three key data points derived from related tests:

REPEATABILITY - this is a measure of how often a given pattern has generated a positive or negative effect. The higher this number, the more likely the pattern will continue to repeat.

SHALLOW MEDIAN - this is a median effect measured with low intent actions such as initiating the first step of a lengthier process

DEEP MEDIAN - this is derived from the highest intent metrics that we have for a given test such as fully completed signups or sales.
