Wikipedia:WikiProject Time/Assessment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Welcome to the assessment department of the Time WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Time related articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Time}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Time articles by quality and Category:Time articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get my article rated?
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Time WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
Why didn't the reviewer leave any comments?
Unfortunately, due to the volume of articles that need to be assessed, we are unable to leave detailed comments in most cases. If you have particular questions, you might ask the person who assessed the article; they will usually be happy to provide you with their reasoning.
What if I don't agree with a rating?
You can list it in the section for assessment requests below, and someone will take a look at it. Alternately, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are, but it's the best system we've been able to devise; if you have a better idea, please don't hesitate to let us know!

If you have any other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.


Quality assessments[edit]

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Time}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Time|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class Time articles)  FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Time articles)  A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Time articles)  GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Time articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Time articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Time articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Time articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Time articles)  FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Time articles) List

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Time articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Time articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Time articles) Draft
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Time articles) File
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Time articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Time articles) Project
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Time articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Time articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Time articles) ???

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added to the article's talk page.

Quality scale[edit]

Importance assessment[edit]

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Time}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Time| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scale[edit]

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about Time. Generally, these topics are sub-articles of the main Time article, vital for the understanding of Time or extremely notable to people outside of the field of the study of Time. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members. Biographies should be limited to the top one or two people in a particular field or persons of the greatest historical importance
High Topics that are very notable within the field of Time, and well-known outside of it, and can be reasonably expected to be included in any print encyclopedia.
Mid Topics that are reasonably notable on a national level within Time without necessarily being famous or very notable outside of the field.
Low Topics of mostly specialized interest or those that are only included for complete coverage or as examples of a higher-level topic; peripheral or trivial topics or topics that have only a limited connection to Time.
