Welcome to the assessment department of the Arminianism WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Arminianism-related articles. 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 {{WPArminianism/Article Scope}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Arminianism articles by quality and Category:Arminianism articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Simple howto[edit]

The basic process[edit]

  • Find an article to assess (see below)
  • Assess it according to the assessment criteria (see below, under Instructions)
  • Enter your findings in the template on the talk page (see Article Scope Template on WikiProject Arminianism)

Finding an article to assess: the tagging process[edit]

There are a variety of ways of finding an article to tag. These include:


Article Scope Template[edit]

If you see an article that should belong to this project but doesn't, please go to its talk page and add

{{WPArminianism/Article Scope|class=|importance=}}

to the top of the Talk page. This creates a box that looks like

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 Arminianism WikiProject 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? 
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.


Quality assessments[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Arminianism|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 Arminianism articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Arminianism articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Arminianism articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Arminianism articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Arminianism articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Arminianism articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Arminianism articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Arminianism articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Arminianism articles)  List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Arminianism articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Arminianism articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Arminianism articles)  Draft 
File (for files; adds pages to Category:File-Class Arminianism articles)  File 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Arminianism articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Arminianism articles)  Project 
Template (for templates; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Arminianism articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Arminianism articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Arminianism 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. Adding comments will add the article to Category:Arminianism articles with comments. 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 {{WPArminianism/Article Scope}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WPArminianism/Article Scope| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scale[edit]

Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Top The article is one of the core topics about Arminianism. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are are included as sections of the main Arminianism article. A reader who is not involved in the field of Arminianism will have high familiarity with the subject matter and should be able to relate to the topic easily. Articles in this importance range are written in mostly generic terms, leaving technical terms and descriptions for more specialized pages. Arminianism
High The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding Arminianism.
Mid The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history of Arminianism. Many readers will be familiar with the topic being discussed, but a larger majority of readers may have only cursory knowledge of the overall subject. Articles at this level will cover subjects that are well known but not necessarily vital to understand Arminianism. Due to the topics covered at this level, Mid-importance articles will generally have more technical terms used in the article text. Most people involved in Arminianism will be rated in this level.
Low The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of Arminianism. Few readers outside the Arminianism field or that are not adherents to atheism may be familiar with the subject matter. It is likely that the reader does not know anything at all about the subject before reading the article. Articles at this range of importance will often delve into the minutiae of Arminianism, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include most practices and infrastructure of Arminianism.
