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

{{WikiProject France|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Quality scale for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class France articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class France articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class France articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class France articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class France articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class France articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class France articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class France articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class France articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class France articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class France articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class France articles)  File 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class France articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class France articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class France articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class France articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed France articles)  ??? 

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. Adding comments will add the article to Category:France articles with comments. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

Importance assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject France| ... | importance=??? | ...}}
Top
High
Mid
Low
???

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scale[edit]

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about France. Generally, these topics are sub-articles of the main France article, vital for the understanding of France or extremely notable to people outside of France. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members. Biographies should be limited to the top one or two French people in a particular field or persons of the greatest historical importance Napoleon Bonaparte, Eiffel Tower
High Topics that are very notable within France, and well-known outside of it, and can be reasonably expected to be included in any print encyclopedia. This includes cities with a population of more than 100,000 Causes of the French Revolution, Marie Curie, Cannes
Mid Topics that are reasonably notable on a national level within France without necessarily being famous or very notable internationally, including smaller towns Battle of Borodino, Around the World in Eighty Days
Low Topics of mostly local interest or those that are only included for complete coverage or as examples of a higher-level topic; peripheral or trivial topics or topics that have only a limited connection to France 1974 French Grand Prix, 50 Reasons to Hate the French
