Wikipedia:WikiProject Equine/Assessment

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

Welcome to the assessment department of the Equine WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about the equestrian world. 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 {{WPEQ}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Equine 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. Or assess it yourself, using the guidelines here.
Who can assess articles? 
Anyone, but especially a member of the Equine WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
What if I don't agree with a rating? 
Discuss at the article's talk page or at Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Equine. Or, 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 article.

Instructions[edit]

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

{{WPEQ|class=|importance=}}

When applicable, status of an article as a part of a WPEQ task force may also be added with the

|breeds=yes

or

|training=yes

parameters following the "importance" parameter

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

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

Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

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. Topics which may seem obscure to an audience in one part of the world—but which are of high notability in other places—could still be highly rated. However, topics of intense interest to a narrow demographic may not be of adequate general interest to earn a high rating.

Status Template Meaning of Status Examples
Top {{Top-importance}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information. Very few articles (currently about 10, no more than 1%) are top importance. Horse, Donkey
High {{High-importance}} This article is very important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge applicable to most equines and parts of the world, or covers a major topic of great significance. The only horse breeds that are ranked high should be those which have had a worldwide impact and influenced the creation of multiple other breeds. Relatively few articles (currently about 50, no more than 5%) are high importance. Saddle, Horse colic, Thoroughbred
Mid {{Mid-importance}} This article is relatively important to this project, as it either covers a topic of wide interest or fills in important specific knowledge of certain areas. The only horse breeds that are ranked mid-importance or higher are those either significant for their influence on other breeds, significant for their historical importance, or those which have very large numbers today. No more than about 10% of all WikiProject Equine articles (currently under 200) will be mid-importance. Bay (horse), English riding, Bowed tendon, Andalusian horse
Low {{Low-importance}} This article is not of overall general importance to this project because it either covers a specific area of knowledge or it covers a more obscure topic that is of limited scope. A "low" importance rating is not a quality assessment; an article of "low" importance may still be an excellent, FA-class article. Nearly all horse breeds will be ranked "low", as will most equestrianism disciplines, medical conditions, equipment, and biographies of individual people or horses tagged in this project. American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, Ambling, Eastern equine encephalitis virus, Banker horse
??? {{???}} This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be assessed. Default if no importance parameter is given
NA {{Not Applicable}} This article does not require an importance assessment. This is usually because it is a category, template, redirect, disambiguation page, or an example on a project page Category:Feral horses, Template:Equestrian Sports
