Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the assessment department of the Herefordshire WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Herefordshire 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. Category:Herefordshire articles by quality serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WP Herefordshire}} project banner. Filling in a rating in the class parameter of the {{WP Herefordshire}} template on the talk page of an article causes the name of that article to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Herefordshire articles by quality.

Frequently asked questions[edit]

How can I get an article rated? 
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
Who can assess articles?

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!

How to assess an article[edit]

To assess article relating to Herefordshire, the template {{WP Herefordshire}} has to be placed on the talk page of an article, if it is not already there. You should try to fill in the "class" and the "importance" parameters. This is what the template looks like.

When writing the template, you should type in the following:

{{WP Herefordshire|class=|importance=}}

After both of the "equals" signs you should enter one of the codes below.

Class Parameter[edit]

One of the following codes should be entered into the class parameter, depending on how good the article is. This will automatically add the page into the corresponding category.

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

For articles which do not fit into any of these categories, there are other options.

  • "NA" can be added if the page is a redirect or does not fit into any of the above categories.
  • "Template" can be added if the page is a template.
  • "Cat" can be added if the page is a category.
  • "List" can be addedd if the page is a list.

The template should now look like this (presuming it is "start class"): {{WPHerefordshire|class=Start|importance=}}
