Wikipedia:WikiProject Cannabis/Assessment

Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the assessment page of WikiProject Cannabis, which focuses on assessing the quality of articles relating to cannabis. The assessment is done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Cannabis}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Cannabis articles by quality and Category:Cannabis articles by importance, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

FAQ[edit]

See also the general assessment FAQ.
1. What is the purpose of the article ratings?
The rating system allows the project to monitor the quality of articles in our subject areas, and to prioritize work on these articles. It is also utilized by the Wikipedia 1.0 program to prepare for static releases of Wikipedia content. Please note, however, that these ratings are primarily intended for the internal use of the project, and do not necessarily imply any official standing within Wikipedia as a whole.
2. How do I add an article to the WikiProject?
Just add {{WikiProject Cannabis}} to the talk page; there's no need to do anything else.
3. Someone put a {{WikiProject Cannabis}} template on an article, but it doesn't seem to be within the project's scope. What should I do?
Because of the large number of articles we deal with, we occasionally make mistakes and add tags to articles that shouldn't have them. If you notice one, feel free to remove the tag, and optionally leave a note on the talk page of this department (or directly with the person who tagged the article).
4. Who can assess articles?
Any member of WikiProject Cannabis is free to add—or change—the rating of an article. Editors who are not participants in this project are also welcome to assess articles, but should defer to consensus within the project in case of procedural disputes.
5. How do I rate an article?
Check the quality scale and select the level that best matches the state of the article; then, follow the instructions below to add the rating to the project banner on the article's talk page.
6. Can I request that someone else rate an article?
Of course; to do so, please comment on the main project discussion page
7. 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.
8. Where can I get more comments about an article?
People at Wikipedia:Peer Review can conduct a more thorough examination of articles; please submit it for review there, or ask for comments on the main project discussion page.
9. What if I don't agree with a rating?
You can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
10. Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are somewhat subjective, 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!
11. What if I have a question not listed here?
If your question concerns the article assessment process specifically, please refer to the discussion page for this department; for any other issues, you can go to the main project discussion page.

Instructions[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Cannabis | class=??? | importance=??? }}

The following values for the class parameter may be used:

The following values for the importance parameter may be used:

Articles for which a class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Cannabis articles and articles for which an importance is not provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Cannabis articles. The class and importance should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Quality scale[edit]

The quality "class" an article receives should follow Wikipedia's regular guidelines for quality found below.

Articles which have not been formerly evaluated, or which have failed a good article review, should not be assigned a quality rating higher than B class. Above that an article needs to go through a formal review process.

Importance scale[edit]

Status Meaning of Status
Top This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information.
High This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge.
Mid This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas.
Low This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia.

For determining the Importance rating (Low, Mid, High, Top) please keep the following in mind:

  • Approximate breakdown of the percentage of articles in each category as a goal.
    • Low=55%
    • Mid=30%
    • High=15%
    • Top=1%
