Welcome to the assessment department of the Children's Literature WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality and importance of Wikipedia's children's and young-adult literature related articles through the WP:1.0 program.

Assessing articles[edit]

Any user can add articles to this WikiProject by adding {{WikiProject Children's literature}} to the article's talk page. This should only be done if the article relates directly to the project scope, and if you find any articles which seem to be incorrectly tagged then they can be delisted by removing the project template from the talk page.

Articles are assessed through the |class= and |importance= parameters in their {{WikiProject Children's literature}} project template. Class is used to denote the quality of the article, and importance to denote its importance to WikiProject Children's Literature. The possible values for each of these can be found in Assessment Criteria below. Often when articles are first tagged they will not be assessed on these qualities, but they will automatically be added to the project and should be assessed shortly, allowing for delay due to backlog.

Any user can assess articles for this project, even if they are not a member. However, some users prefer an outsider's opinion on articles they are closely involved in, and you can request an assessment from project members by adding the article to the list of Assessment requests below. These will be dealt with by a number of editors; if you would prefer one particular individual for some reason, it may be better to contact them through their talk page.

Ratings are often subjective and will change over time as the article develops. If you have any problems with the ratings system, you may wish to leave a message at the project talk page or the article discussion page.

Assessment Criteria[edit]

This project uses the WP:1.0 assessment criteria to assess articles. The criteria specific to this project are listed below.

Assessment requests[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article on this project and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below along with your signature and any comments you wish to leave. This is not required, and you may assess the article for yourself, but any articles here should soon receive attention from a project member, who may also leave comments on the article's talk page. If you assess an article on this list, please use <s> and </s> to strike it through so that other editors do not waste time going there. Assessed articles will be removed periodically.

Please do not place articles which you believe to be Good Article or Featured Article class on this list. These have their own nomination procedures, which can be found at Good Article nominations and Featured Article nominations.

Please do not place articles which have not yet received assessments on this list. Any unassessed article with the project tag will automatically be categorised as unassessed and will be dealt with as soon as possible. There may be a short delay due to backlog.


  1. Stargirl (novel): I recently did quite a bit of editing and clean-up on this article. It could probably still use some work, but it could stand to move up a class or two.--Redfive27 (talk) 17:37, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
I moved it up to C-class. It still needs some good work in anumber of departments. First of all the plot section need some major trimming, what with a prologue, a really big main plot and an epilogue. Apart from that it lack an important section - Reception. Since it is written in the lead that it was generally praised by critics and the fact that it had won some awards and has been a betseller I guess it might not be really tough to make a reception section. Just include this info with a little more detail from the site. Apart from that another important secton - Themes, is also not there, try adding it if you could.King Of The Wise (talk) 08:57, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
  1. Kissing Shakespeare. I need help of assessing the article of Pamela Mingle's debut novel. Thanks--NeoBatfreak (talk) 20:35, 24 August 2013 (UTC)
No this is still defintely a Start class. Needs a lot of work, just try to do what the tags ask.King Of The Wise (talk) 08:57, 2 April 2014 (UTC)
