Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Science Fiction! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's science fiction related articles. Article ratings are used within the project 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 {{Science Fiction Project}} banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Science fiction articles by quality and Category:Science fiction articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for a worklist for the project.

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 WikiProject Science Fiction 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? 
If you disagree with a rating on an article you created, 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. If you disagree with a rating on an article you did not create, feel free to change it.
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 assessments[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Science Fiction|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 science fiction articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class science fiction articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class science fiction articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class science fiction articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class science fiction articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class science fiction articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class science fiction articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class science fiction articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class science fiction 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 science fiction articles) Wikipedia Book Book 
Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class science fiction articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class science fiction articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class science fiction articles)  File

Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class science fiction articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class science fiction articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class science fiction articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed science fiction 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. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

Importance assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Science Fiction|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 science fiction articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance science fiction articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance science fiction articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance science fiction articles)  Low

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.

If you assess an article, please strike it off so that other editors will not waste time going there too. Comments are not mandatory and any should be left at the article's talk page; the list below will be wiped periodically; if you registered a request below and it has been fulfilled, please consider coming back and removing it from the list yourself.

  1. Recent article created for Mira Grant's Blackout would appreciate an assessment.
  2. I've greatly expanded and referenced scientific romance and would greatly appreciate an assessment and further suggestions. Euchrid (talk) 10:00, 24 March 2012 (UTC)
  3. Extensive work done on The War of the Worlds and A Princess of Mars. While I doubt either article would move up in rating, as both need further sourcing (and the summary in A Princess of Mars needs work), and have incomplete areas, both are high priority articles, so perhaps would benefit from some assessment and perhaps some suggestions for further improvement. Mesmacat (talk) 03:09, 2 March 2009 (UTC) - The War of the Worlds still needs to be assessed - 01:31, 2 August 2010 (UTC)
  4. Klaatu barada nikto - Could somebody reassess this article please? Improvements were proposed at Talk:Klaatu barada nikto#Improving this article. Here is a Diff since the last assessment in 2007. Thanks very much. - Hydroxonium (talk | contribs) 07:34, 28 July 2010 (UTC)
As of 2012, its start class and mid importance, which i agree with. have not checked the differences.Mercurywoodrose (talk) 01:39, 10 August 2012 (UTC)
  1. Hi all. I have been working on Duncan Lunan again, and I hope I managed to bring it above "Start" Class... could anybody check it out for me? Thanks. McMarcoP (talk) 17:33, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
  2. Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said - Have extensively edited the plot summary section and hope this article now rates higher than a C-class for quality? Other sections appear fairly robust. DistractionActivity (talk) 17:55, 20 February 2012 (UTC)
