V = # Points Completed / Sprint
and
V = #PC / Day
and
V = #PC / Day / Dev

Also
#Days = (sprint_end or date #pts == 0) - sprint_start

I'll take a stab at this ...

Pmac and I spoke about this. We deff want to add velocity. Adding to future milestone.

@openjck

+1. This would be fantastic.

I really like having a few different averages. Mike Cohn recommends three:

  • Long term average, defined as the mean of the last eight sprints
  • Worst case average, defined as the mean of the worst three chosen among the last eight sprints
  • Best case average, defined as the mean of the best three chosen among the last eight sprints

Keep in mind, though, that sprints are not always the same length (at least on our team). I usually calculate velocity/day, and then multiply that number by the number of days in the new sprint. Take a look at my old velocity spreadsheet for an example.

Great suggestions. I'm in favor of all of these numbers. We'll hopefully get this done sooner than later. Thanks for the feedback!
