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

Assessment scales[edit]

Quality scale[edit]

The scale for assessments is defined at Wikipedia:Version_1.0_Editorial_Team/Assessment. Articles are divided into the following categories.

Cetaceans-specific requirements[edit]

The above criteria apply to general-content articles. Cetacean articles have additional criteria/guidelines about what sorts of content and formatting should be provided for an article of each class.

Each cetacean article has its assessment included inside Template:WikiProject Cetaceans, such as {{WikiProject Cetaceans|class=B|importance=mid}}. Note that the class parameter is case-specific; see the template's discussion page for more information.

See the project manual of style for cetacean related article guidelines.

Importance scale[edit]

Top Subject is a must-have for a print encyclopaedia
High Subject contributes a depth of knowledge
Mid Subject fills in more minor details
Low Subject is mainly of specialist interest.

Assessment process[edit]

To create a new assessment discussion here, add the article to be assessed in a level three (e.g. ===[[Article name]]===) sub-section of the Article assessments section below. Give the article's exact name in the title with a wikilink. Finally, add the "assessed=yes" parameter to the {{CetaTalk}} template near the top of the article's talk page.

After the header add your comments in a table like this:

{|
| CLASS || IMPORTANCE ||REMARKS - ~~~~
|}

Substituting CLASS for what you think the class is, IMPORTANCE for what you think the importance is and REMARKS for any comments you have on the article and then sign off with four tildes (~~~~) after the REMARKS.

When filling in the CLASS use the class templates to colour the table cell:

  • {{Stub-Class}}
  • {{Start-Class}}
  • {{B-Class}}
  • {{GA-Class}}
  • {{A-Class}}
  • {{FA-Class}}

And for IMPORTANCE use the importance templates:

  • {{Top-importance}}
  • {{High-importance}}
  • {{Mid-importance}}
  • {{Low-importance}}

Current practice is that Stub-Start-B assessments are done by individual editors when looking at an article. Before upgrading to A-class the article should be discussed here to make sure everyone agrees. Once the article is A-class you should probably get general peer review on it and then follow the normal process for making the article a FA article. Peer review (PR) and FA candidates (FAC) should be announced here to get more specific comments from the editors.
