Wikipedia:WikiProject Mexico/Assessment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Welcome to the assessment department of the Mexico WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Mexico or the people of Mexico. 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 Mexico}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Mexico articles by quality and Category:Mexico articles by importance, 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 the Mexico WikiProject 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.


Quality assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Mexico|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 Mexico articles) Featured article FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Mexico articles) A-Class article A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Mexico articles)  GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Mexico articles) B-Class article B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Mexico articles) C-Class article C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Mexico articles) Start-Class article Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Mexico articles) Stub-Class article Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Mexico articles) Featured list FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Mexico 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 Mexico articles) Category page Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Mexico articles) Disambiguation page Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Mexico articles)  Draft 
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Mexico articles)  File 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Mexico articles)  Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Mexico articles)  Project 
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Mexico articles)  Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Mexico articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Mexico articles)  ??? 

Importance assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Mexico|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 Mexico articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Mexico articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Mexico articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Mexico articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Mexico articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Mexico articles  ??? 

The importance parameter should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Quality scale[edit]

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance scale[edit]

The criteria used for rating article importance are not meant to be an absolute or canonical view of how significant the topic is. Rather, they attempt to gauge the probability of the average reader of Wikipedia needing to look up the topic (and thus the immediate need to have a suitably well-written article on it). Thus, subjects with greater popular notability may be rated higher than topics which are arguably more "important" but which are of interest primarily to students of Mexico.

Note that general notability need not be from the perspective of editor demographics; generally notable topics should be rated similarly regardless of the country or region in which they hold said notability. Thus, topics which may seem obscure to a Western audience—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

We are currently discussing which articles should be counted as being of Top-importance at Wikipedia:WikiProject Mexico/Assessment/Top-importance articles.

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.

I am considering upgrading Timeline_of_the_Mexican_Drug_War from 'start' to 'C-class'. Could somebody please give me a second opinion? DENSSAPIENTIAE (talk) 02:01, 22 February 2012 (UTC)
I did some significant work on the Sierra Madre Occidental article a while ago, but little has changed with the article since. Because the article now appears in a somewhat stable state, would anyone mind doing a reassessment on the article? Major additions have been made. Al Climbs (talk)
User:Ndaco (no longer active), myself, and a few others have done a comprehensive rewrite of the article on the Aztec Empire since it was last assessed, and it could seriously use a reassessment, if anyone is able. Snickeringshadow (talk) 20:32, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
Boy's Town, Nuevo Laredo
Christmas in Mexico a lot more information has been added since first assessed
