This is the Tambayan Philippines assessment department, where Filipino contributors and contributors to Philippine-related articles rate and classify articles related to the Philippines based on the quality and importance of their content. The ratings issued by the department are not only used in determining the distribution quality of Philippine-related articles, but are also used as a determinant of quality and excellence in the project as a whole.


Welcome to the assessment department of Tambayan Philippines! This department focuses on identifying and assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about or related to the Philippines. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment 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.

Identifying articles that are Philippine-related and thus under the scope of the Tambayan Philippines is done by tagging the articles with the {{WPPhilippines}} project banner. The assessment ratings are done by supplying the parameters of the {{WPPhilippines}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Philippine-related articles by quality and Category:Philippine-related articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Any participant of the Tambayan Philippines is free to add—or change—the rating of an article. If you want to request that an article be rated, please suggest it at the talk page. If you don't agree with a rating, you can also request that it be reassessed at the talk page.

Instructions[edit]

A Wikipedia article can be tagged as being Philippine-related, and thus under the scope of the Tambayan Philippines WikiProject, by adding the {{WPPhilippines}} project banner template in the article's talk page at the top. Sometimes, an article is tagged to be under the scope of multiple WikiProjects so the template code should be placed next to other such project banners. If the banners are collapsible, a "nested=yes" parameter should be added to the template code. For guidance on how to identify which articles are Philippine-related, please see the scope guidelines section below.

An article's assessment rating is generated by specifying the class and importance parameters in the {{WPPhilippines}} template:

{{WPPhilippines| class= | importance= }}

The class parameter gauges the quality of the article and can take either of the following values whose meanings are found in the class guidelines section below:

FA A GA B C Start Stub <blank>

The importance parameter gauges the necessity of the article for a space-limited hypothetical Philippine print encyclopedia and can take either of the following values whose meanings are found in the importance guidelines section below:

Top High Mid Low <blank>

Guidelines[edit]

Scope[edit]

In general, articles that are Philippine-related are easy to identify. These include places in the Philippines, Filipinos, Filipino-related cultural topics, Philippine institutions and organizations and companies, events in Philippine history, etc.

But there should be no indiscriminate tagging of articles just because they are related to the Philippines. For example, while coconut is a major crop product of the Philippines, it would make no sense if every other country WikiProject whose country produces coconuts would also tag the coconut article. A valid Philippine-related article is coconut industry in the Philippines. Another example is the mobile phone article: the general article should not be under the scope of the Tambayan Philippines WikiProject, but an article on mobile communications in the Philippines is a valid article.

More examples. While the United Nations has the Philippines as a member, it makes no sense for that article to be under the scope of all the member country WikiProjects. The article on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations would arguably be under the scope of the Philippines WikiProject since the country is a founding member and there are currently 10 member countries, making country tagging less nonsensical. The article on the Asian Development Bank is also arguably Philippine-related: while there are more than 60 member-states under the bank, its headquarters is located in the Philippines and half of its staff is Filipino.

As a rule of thumb, if an article can conceivably be tagged as related to too many countries, do not tag it as part of the Tambayan Philippines WikiProject, unless the position of the Philippines in relation to that article is quite prominent.

Class[edit]

Parameter value Description
Featured article FA FA

Featured-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:FA-Class Philippine-related articles. This value is reserved exclusively for articles that have received "Featured article" status, and meet the current criteria for featured articles.

Example: Raid at Cabanatuan

A-Class article A A

A-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:A-Class Philippine-related articles. This value is selected for articles that provide a well-written, reasonably clear and complete description of their topics, as described in How to write a great article. Articles should be of a length suitable for the subject, with a well-written introduction, and an appropriate series of headings; have sufficient external literature references, and are well illustrated, with no copyright problems.

Example: 1st Filipino Infantry Regiment

GA GA

Good-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:GA-Class Philippine-related articles. This value is reserved for articles that have passed the Good article nomination process and been granted GA status, meeting the good article standards. This should be used for articles that still need some work to reach featured article standards, but that are otherwise acceptable.

Example: Philippines

B B

B-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:B-Class Philippine-related articles. This value is selected for well-written and mostly comprehensive articles. Articles may have some gaps or missing elements or references, needs editing for language usage and/or clarity, balance of content, or contains other policy problems such as copyright, Neutral Point Of View (NPOV) or No Original Research (NOR).

Example: Santa Maria, Bulacan

C C

C-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:C-Class Philippine-related articles. This value is selected for not-so well-written and somewhat comprehensive articles. Articles may have large gaps and missing elements or references, needs many editing for language usage and/or clarity, balance of content, and usually contains other policy problems such as copyright, Neutral Point Of View (NPOV) or No Original Research (NOR).

Example: Philippine National Railways

Start Start

Start-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Start-Class Philippine-related articles. This values should be selected for articles that have a meaningful amount of good content, but it is still weak in many areas, and may lack a key element.

Example: Parokya ni Edgar

Stub Stub

Stub-Class articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Stub-Class Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles that are either very short or a rough collection of information that will need much work to bring it to A-Class level.

Example: Juan Nakpil

??? <blank>

Unassessed articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Unassessed Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles with no rating yet.

Importance[edit]

Parameter value Description
Top Top

Top-importance articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Top-importance Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles that are a must-have for a Philippine encyclopedia, if ever there was one. Imagine that there is a 500-article Philippine encyclopedia; what articles should be in there? Those articles are of Top importance.

See Wikipedia:Tambayan Philippines/Assessment/Top-importance articles for a list of all identified Top-importance articles.

Example: Manila

High High

High-importance articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:High-importance Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles contributes a depth of knowledge about the Philippines. For the High level, imagine what a 2,000-article Philippine encyclopedia would contain on top of the Top-importance articles.

Example: Kulintang

Mid Mid

Mid-importance articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Mid-importance Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles that fill in minor details and usually rounds out or completes a list of topics of Philippine-related subjects. For the Mid level, imagine what a 10,000-article Philippine encyclopedia would contain on top of the Top- and High-importance articles.

Example: Korina Sanchez

Low Low

Low-importance articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Low-importance Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles that are of specialist interest or trivial value. All articles that could conceivable be included in Wikipedia but are not at least of Mid importance are of Low importance.

Example: UAAP Season 69

??? <blank>

Unknown-importance articles. Selecting this value adds the article to Category:Unknown-importance Philippine-related articles. This value should be selected for articles whose importance is not known yet.
