Article assessment is the process by which tropical cyclone articles are sorted by quality into the different quality categories. This page provides information on the assessment scale as well as the current practice of assessing articles.


Assessment scale[edit]

The scale for assessments is defined at Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment. Articles are divided into the following categories:

]


Current practice is that Stub-Start-C-B assessments are done by individual editors when looking at an article. While usually it only takes a short time for assessors to identify new articles in Category:Unassessed meteorology articles, editors can request a review here if it is taking too long to assess an article.

Before upgrading articles to {{A-Class}}, the article should be discussed here to make sure everyone agrees that it meets the criteria listed above. This process is called an "A-Class review". To create a new A-Class review or other assessment discussion below, add the article to be assessed in a sub-section of the #A-Class review or Assessment needed sections below. Finally, add the "assessed=yes" parameter to the {{meteorology}}, {{severe}}, or {{non-tropical}} template on the article's talk page like so: {{meteorology|class=xx|importance=xx|assessed=yes}}. Don't bundle more than one article per section, as that causes "assessed=yes" to point to a dead link.

Once the article is A-Class, you should probably get general peer review on it and then follow the normal process for promoting the article to featured status. Peer review (PR) and FA candidates (FAC) should be announced here to get more meteorology-specific comments from WPTC editors.

Finally, to prevent the page from becoming too long, archive an assessment discussion using the following form (replacing PAGENAME with the name of the article to archive):


A-Class review[edit]

This section is for articles which members feel meet the A-class criteria set by the project. This is usually the final step before a Featured article candidacy. To start discussion, please copy the following text and paste it above the most recently created section, replacing ARTICLE NAME with the name of the article.

===ARTICLE NAME===
{{la|ARTICLE NAME}}

Assessment needed[edit]

This section is for articles which have yet to receive an assessment on the above scale. To start discussion, please copy the following text and paste it above the most recently created section, replacing ARTICLE NAME with the name of the article.
