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


Quality assessments[edit]

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

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

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

Book (for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class Iran articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Iran articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Iran articles) Disambiguation page Disambig

NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Iran articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Iran 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:Iran 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.
