Wikipedia:WikiProject Iraq/Assessment

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

Welcome to the assessment department of the Iraq WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Iraq or the people of Iraq. 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 Iraq}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Iraq articles by quality and Category:Iraq 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 Iraq WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
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 assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Iraq|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 Iraq articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Iraq articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Iraq articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Iraq articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Iraq articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Iraq articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Iraq articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Iraq articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Iraq 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 Iraq articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Iraq articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Iraq articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
FM (for files; adds pages to Category:FM-Class Iraq articles) Featured media FM 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class Iraq articles)  File 
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Iraq articles) Redirect page Redirect 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Iraq articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Iraq articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Iraq articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Iraq articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Iraq articles)  ???

Importance assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Iraq|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project:

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance Iraq articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Iraq articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Iraq articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Iraq articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Iraq articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Iraq articles  ??? 

The importance parameter should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

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 Iraq.

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. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below.

  • The article on Hammurabi is included in the Iraq project, and I have just completed an article on his son and successor Samsu-iluna. I would like to request that this be considered for inclusion in the Iraq section and that it be assessed for quality and importance. My apologies if I am putting this request in the wrong section, Wikipedia's social structure can be a bit labyrinthine.
