Wikipedia:WikiProject Agriculture/Assessment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the assessment department of the Agriculture WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Agriculture or the people of Agriculture. 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 {{WPFarm}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Agriculture articles by quality, 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 Agriculture WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
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.

Instructions[edit]

An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WPFarm}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WPFarm
|class=
|attention=
|collaboration-candidate=
|past-collaboration=
|peer-review= 
|old-peer-review=
|needs-infobox=
}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Agriculture articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Quality scale[edit]

This WikiProject uses the Wikipedia:Version_1.0_Editorial_Team/Assessment standard quality scale.

Importance scale[edit]

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of Agriculture.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Status Template Meaning of Status
Top {{Top-Class}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information.
High {{High-Class}} This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge.
Mid {{Mid-Class}} This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas.
Low {{Low-Class}} This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia.
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.

We are currently discussing which articles should be counted as being of Top-importance at Wikipedia:WikiProject Agriculture/Assessment/Top-importance articles.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below.

  • Ancon_(sheep) -- Jaydubya93 (talk) 02:47, 8 March 2014 (UTC) I would like to request an upgrade from Stub class to Start or C class. While I would be the first one to point out that a fair amount of additional work is needed, I have doubled the size of the article and increased the references from one to six citations (all from academic journals). Due to the extinct status of this animal, images are proving difficult and may not be possible in the short term. That said, additional expansion is under way and an extra page or so of solid, relevant content should be no problem.
  • Otto Frederick Hunziker. On 7 Jul 08, Tpbradbury upgraded the quality scale rating to B-Class, consistent with other WikiProjects. The article has since been listed as a good article under the good article criteria. On 11 Sep 08, the article was upgraded from B to GA quality status for all applicable WikiProjects. I would be interested in any further assessment to A Class or comments regarding possible changes to further progress. More importantly, I would be very interested in a reassessment of the importance rating for this project. The importance rating has remained stuck at low. I am not sure if this is the default setting and the article is awaiting a manual review. Or are dairy issues deemed of low importance generally in the overall agriculture scheme? Given the significant overall impact of O F Hunziker on large segments of the agricultural community, the article appears to warrant a medium - if not high - importance rating. A reassessment and any assessment comments would be greatly appreciated.--Rpclod (talk) 03:28, 17 September 2008 (UTC)
