Cyberduck icon.png This week's cleanup: Demographics of Dallas, Texas. Article rotates in 0:23:30 at 24:00 14 December 2006 (UST).

Welcome to the assessment department of the Dallas WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Dallas. 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 Dallas-Fort Worth}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Dallas 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 WikiProject Dallas 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.

We are rating articles for quality using the Dallas-Fort Worth articles by quality scale (based on this) and for importance using the Release Version Criteria scale. Once articles are rated for either they will show up on Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Dallas-Fort Worth articles by quality. To rate an article, add the following next to the {{WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth}} tag:


Please note: This template should be transcluded ({{WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth/Assessment}}) and not substituted (subst) because it employs conditional code. Transclusion also allows easy updating of all the Project's talk pages without having to edit hundreds of pages.

Usage[edit]

Place either of the following at the top of the talk page of related pages:

{{WikiProject WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth |class= |importance= |subproject= |needs-infobox= |attention= |small= |listas= }}
{{WikiProject WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth
|class         = 
|importance    = 
|subproject    = 
|needs-infobox = 
|attention     = 
|small         = 
|listas        = 
}}

Optional parameters[edit]

  • attention – set |attention=yes if the article needs immediate attention from experienced editors. Use only if another parameter does not cover the need for attention; this should be used sparingly.
  • class – valid values are: fa, a, ga, b, c, start, stub, fl, list, na (case-insensitive). See the project's quality scale for details.
  • importance – valid values are: top, high, mid, low, na (case-insensitive). See the project's importance scale for details.
  • listas – This parameter, which is the equivalent of the DEFAULTSORT sortkey that should be placed on all biographical articles, is a sortkey for the article talk page (e.g. for Nolan Ryan, use |listas=Ryan, Nolan so that the talk page will show up in the R's and not the N's of the various assessment and administrative categories). This is important because it is one source used by those who set DEFAULTSORT on the article; consider also setting the DEFAULTSORT for the article when setting this parameter. For more information about this, please see Wikipedia:Categorization of people#Ordering names in a category.
    It is not required if another WikiProject template on the same page has its own |listas= set, since it not only affects categories used by the banner in which it is set, but it also affects the sortkey of all other banners and templates.
  • needs-infobox – set |needs-infobox=yes if the article needs an infobox. Remember that infoboxes are not suitable for all articles, and can overwhelm short articles.
  • small – set |small=yes to display a small version of the template aligned along the right side of the page (as opposed to at the top). This parameter does not work as expected if the banner template is enclosed in {{WikiProject banner shell}} or any of its redirects.
  • subproject – set this parameter to a non-blank value if the page should meet standards set by one of WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's subprojects. Values are as follows:
    • |subproject=culture – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's culture subproject
    • |subproject=education – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's education subproject
    • |subproject=history – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's history subproject
    • |subproject=neighborhoods – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's neighborhood subproject
    • |subproject=sports – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's sports subproject
    • |subproject=structures – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's structure subproject
    • |subproject=transportation – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's transportation subproject
    • |subproject=companies – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's company subproject
    • |subproject=people – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's biographical subproject
    • |subproject=media – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's media subproject
    • |subproject=geography – WikiProject Dallas-Fort Worth's physical geography subproject
  • category – set |category=no if, and only if, a banner is being used for demonstration or testing purposes, to prevent unnecessary or undesirable categorization. Otherwise, omit this parameter.


Note: You should not assign any article GA, A, or FA grades arbitrarily. These grades must pass through official Wikipedia channels.

Assessment requests[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.

  • Dallas Market Center This entry has undergone major edits to read less like a "brochure" and prevent relevant facts. Please reassess.
  • NorthPark Center -- Recently undergone major edits, although the article could still use some pictures, the information in the article has been completely updated and cleaned up. -- RedPoptarts 04:04, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
  • Garland, TX -- I think it should be looked at again. Says it's a start article, but it's gone through quite a bit of changes since then I think. Pigman5 (talk) 10:39, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
  • Lewisville, Texas -- highly updated new article from its previous status. Still needs work, but it's much better. Long way to go. 06:46, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Quality Scale[edit]

Article progress grading scheme
Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Featured article FA
{{FA-Class}}
Reserved exclusively for articles that have received "Featured article" status after peer review, and meet the current criteria for featured articles. Definitive. Outstanding, thorough article; a great source for encyclopedic information. No further editing necessary, unless new published information has come to light. Ike Altgens (as of November 2006)
A-Class article A
{{A-Class}}
Provides a well-written, reasonably clear and complete description of the topic, as described in How to write a great article. It should be of a length suitable for the subject, with a well-written introduction and an appropriate series of headings to break up the content. It should have sufficient external literature references, preferably from the "hard" (peer-reviewed where appropriate) literature rather than websites. Should be well illustrated, with no copyright problems. At the stage where it could at least be considered for featured article status, corresponds to the "Wikipedia 1.0" standard. Very useful to readers. A fairly complete treatment of the subject. A non-expert in the subject matter would typically find nothing wanting. May miss a few relevant points. Minor edits and adjustments would improve the article, particularly if brought to bear by a subject-matter expert. In particular, issues of breadth, completeness, and balance may need work. Peer-review would be helpful at this stage. Dallas, Texas (as of Nov 2006)
GA
{{GA-Class}}
The article has passed through the Good article nomination process and been granted GA status, meeting the good article standards. This should be used for articles that still need some work to reach featured article standards, but that are otherwise good. Good articles that may succeed in FAC should be considered A-Class articles, but being a Good article is not a requirement for A-Class. Useful to nearly all readers. A good treatment of the subject. No obvious problems, gaps, excessive information. Adequate for most purposes, but other encyclopedias could do a better job. Some editing will clearly be helpful, but not necessary for a good reader experience. If the article is not already fully wikified, now is the time. Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope (as of Sep 2006)
B
{{B-Class}}
Has several of the elements described in "start", usually a majority of the material needed for a completed article. Nonetheless, it has significant gaps or missing elements or references, needs substantial editing for English language usage and/or clarity, balance of content, or contains other policy problems such as copyright, NPOV or NOR. With NPOV a well written B-class may correspond to the "Wikipedia 0.5" or "usable" standard. Articles that are close to GA status but don't meet the Good article criteria should be B- or Start-class articles. Useful to many, but not all, readers. A casual reader flipping through articles would feel that they generally understood the topic, but a serious student or researcher trying to use the material would have trouble doing so, or would risk error in derivative work. Considerable editing is still needed, including filling in some important gaps or correcting significant policy errors. Articles for which cleanup is needed will typically have this designation to start with. History of Dallas, Texas (1874-1929) (as of Nov 2006)
Start
{{Start-Class}}
The article has a meaningful amount of good content, but it is still weak in many areas, and may lack a key element such as a standard infobox. For example an article on Africa might cover the geography well, but be weak on history and culture. Has at least one serious element of gathered materials, including any one of the following:
  • a particularly useful picture or graphic
  • multiple links that help explain or illustrate the topic
  • a subheading that fully treats an element of the topic
  • multiple subheadings that indicate material that could be added to complete the article
Useful to some, provides a moderate amount of information, but many readers will need to find additional sources of information. The article clearly needs to be expanded. Substantial/major editing is needed, most material for a complete article needs to be added. This article still needs to be completed, so an article cleanup tag is inappropriate at this stage. Downtown Dallas (as of Nov 2006)
Stub
{{Stub-Class}}
The article is either a very short article or a rough collection of information that will need much work to bring it to A-Class level. It is usually very short, but can be of any length if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible. Possibly useful to someone who has no idea what the term meant. May be useless to a reader only passingly familiar with the term. At best a brief, informed dictionary definition. Any editing or additional material can be helpful. Reverchon Park (as of Nov 2006)
List
{{List-Class}}
This page is a list.     List of mayors of Dallas, Texas
NA
{{NA-Class}}
The page is not an article and does not require a rating.     WP:DALLAS
Needed
{{Needed-Class}}
The article does not exist and needs to be created.     Kessler Plaza (as of Nov 2006)
Category
{{Cat-Class}}
This page is a category related to WikiProject Dallas.     Category:Highways in Dallas
Template
{{Template-Class}}
This page is a template related to WikiProject Dallas.     {{Dallas Neighborhoods}}
Disambig
{{Disambig-Class}}
This page is a disambiguation page related to WikiProject Dallas.     Kessler, Dallas (as of Nov 2006)
