Assessment screening[edit]

Anyone who assesses articles very often knows how often the assessments get out of date, and how tedious it is to re-check them manually.

Nettrom and Aaron Halfaker have analyzed all 9,000+ plus of the WP:MED stubs and found about 750 that they figured had at least a 50% chance of not being a stub. The list has been posted at m:Research:Ideas/Screening WikiProject Medicine articles for quality/Prediction table. The next step is to manually re-screen the pages on the list, to see how accurate their algorithm is. If anyone's interested, please feel free to have a look.

I have started a discussion on possibly making Draft-class one of the default assessment classes used by WikiProjects. Any comments welcome at Wikipedia:Village pump (proposals)#Widen usage of Draft-class. Thank you — Martin (MSGJ · talk) 13:34, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

I am still keeping up with assessments for WP:ALASKA and others when time allows. The Draft-class was added to the class mask and a category was created for WP Alaska. I tagged a number of articles in draftspace for the project. It appears that lack of support on this end for that class is fouling up the counts presented on various tools. The draft articles appear as redlinks in the assessment log. I wondered if this were also the case with other classes as well. For quite some time, Category:WikiProject Alaska articles contained X, as did the sum total of Category:Alaska articles by importance. However, the sum total of Category:Alaska articles by quality was X + 2. Now, with those 26 draft articles, it's counting X – 24.

Who can rate[edit]

I recently had someone change the grading from B to C on an article I wrote, with an edit summary saying that it had not been checked against the B criteria. My understanding was that anyone can assign any grade from stub to B without any kind of written assessment, so long as the article meets the criteria. I did in fact check the article against the criteria; I just didn't say so on the talk page. Has the practice changed? The article in question is Out of This World Adventures; the editor who changed the grade to C was Fortdj33; I'll leave a note on their talk page about this discussion.

Good Lists[edit]

There is a proposal to set up a new classification level, Good List. Please add your comments there. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:25, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
