Wikipedia:WikiProject Portugal/Assessment

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

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


An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Portugal}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Portugal
|class=    <!--Leave blank or remove for Category, Image, Template, or Project pages-->
|importance = 
|collaboration-candidate=   <!--Removed if answer is, no-->

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Portugal articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

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 Portugal.

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.

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 have recently made improvements to the Belém Tower article trying to follow all the style rules and meet the quality criteria. I think it follows pretty well, but I am not certain how comprehensive it is. It has not previously been assessed for quality in WikiProject Portugal. I also rated it with mid level importance, maybe someone else should check that too. Thought you might want to know that one of the articles in your project has been improved, Strafpeloton2 (talk) 01:04, 22 December 2009 (UTC)
  • I just translated to EnWiki an article I created in PtWiki: Jorge Ferreira Chaves, and I would like an outside opinion about it. Thank you.Quiiiz (talk) 03:08, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
  • Although I didn't edit the article, I'd like to ask Henry_the_Navigator to be reassessed as being of top importance, as I feel that someone with such global historical impact is woefully misrepresented by "only" a medium rating. Maegil (talk) 00:13, 27 October 2011 (UTC)
