Wikipedia:WikiProject Microsoft Windows/Assessment

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

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

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


Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Microsoft Windows|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 Microsoft Windows articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Microsoft Windows articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Microsoft Windows articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Microsoft Windows articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Microsoft Windows articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Microsoft Windows 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."

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.

  • Microsoft Office Mobile - Article has never been assessed before. Brianreading (talk) 21:20, 6 April 2009 (UTC))
  • VBScript - Requesting assessment to upgrade quality rating; signficant changes to article since last quality assessment - Thanks. DonToto (talk) 00:26, 7 May 2010 (UTC)
  • File Allocation Table - updated, still B-class, but IMO high importance. –89.204.137.133 (talk) 22:30, 17 July 2011 (UTC)
  • Enhanced Write Filter - Why is this only rated as "Stub Class"? It's a lot more than a "dictionary definition". How about "Start" or "C". It's a bit poor on reliable references (it's largely based on a single non-Microsoft web page) and as soon as you try to do anything you find it lacks important details --Salocin-yel (talk) 10:50, 8 May 2012 (UTC)

Assessment log[edit]

The logs in this section are generated automatically (on a daily basis); please don't add entries to them by hand.

Unexpected changes, such as downgrading an article, or raising it more than two assessment classes at once, are shown in bold.
