Wikipedia:WikiProject Emo/Assessment

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

Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Emo! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's emo-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 Emo}} banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Emo articles by quality and Category:Emo 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 WikiProject Emo 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.

Instructions[edit]

Quality assessments[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Emo| ... | class=??? | ...}}
class

This optional parameter records the Project quality assessment rating currently assigned to the particular article on whose talkpage the project banner appears.

If unassigned, or an invalid value is given, the parameter defaults to "unassigned" and the template places the talkpage into Category:Unassessed Emo articles.

The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added either to the article's talk page or to the /Comments subpage which will appear as a link next to the assessment. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

Valid values for this parameter, their associated meanings and categories are given in the table below. Values should be typed as shown (eg |class=GA ):

Importance assessment[edit]

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

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

If unassigned, or an invalid value is given, or the class parameter is set to "NA", the parameter defaults to "unassigned" and the template places the talkpage into Category:Unknown-importance Emo articles.

Importance scale[edit]

Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Top
{{Top-importance}}
The article is one of the core topics about emo. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are are included as sections of the main emo article. These are the articles with the highest potential for being elevated to featured article status. A reader who is not a fan of emo will have high familiarity with the subject matter and should be able to relate to the topic easily. Only a handful of the most culturally significant musicians, albums, songs, etc. will be assessed with Top importance, as these are the most likely to have large amounts of reliable secondary sources available to reference the article. Articles in this importance range are written in mostly generic terms, leaving technical terms and descriptions for more specialized pages. Rites of Spring
High
{{High-importance}}
The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding emo. These articles have a high potential to be elevated to featured article status. Most readers will have some knowledge of the subject. Famous musicians, albums, record labels, etc. may have High importance, as it is likely that a good number of reliable secondary sources exist that could be used to reference the article. Articles at this level cover particular issues related to emo, specific terms are used to detail the topic. The Get Up Kids
Mid
{{Mid-importance}}
The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history of emo. They may still have the potential to reach good article or featured article status with work. Many readers will be familiar with the topic being discussed, but a larger majority of readers may have only cursory knowledge of the overall subject. Moderately well-known musicians, albums, etc. will be marked with Mid importance, as it is unlikely that many reliable secondary sources exist that cover these topics. Articles at this level will cover subjects that are well known but not necessarily vital to understand emo. Due to the topics covered at this level, Mid-importance articles will generally have more technical terms used in the article text. Most topics familiar only to the community of rock music will be rated in this level. Christie Front Drive
Low
{{Low-importance}}
The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of emo, though they may still have the potential to be elevated to either good article or featured article status. Few readers outside the rock music community or who are not emo fans may be familiar with the subject matter. It is unlikely that the typical reader knows anything at all about the subject before reading the article. Lesser known musicians, albums, songs, etc. might be listed with Low importance, as is its likely that fewer reliable secondary sources exist that cover these topics. Articles at this range of importance will often delve into the minutiae of the subject, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include obscure performers or subgenres, minor releases, aspects of fashion, etc. One, Two, Three, Four
