Welcome to the assessment department of the Roots music WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Roots/Folk/Traditional music-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 {{WikiProject Roots music}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Roots music articles by quality and Category:Roots music 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 Roots music)

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

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

Templates[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Roots music|class=|importance=}}

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

WikiProject Roots music (Rated NA-class)

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 Roots music 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.

Instructions[edit]

Quality assessments[edit]

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

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

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

NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Roots music articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Roots music 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:Roots music 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 {{WikiProject Roots music}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Roots music| ... | importance=??? | ...}}
Top
High
Mid
Low
???

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 Roots music. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are included as sections of the main Roots music article. A reader who is not involved in the field of Roots music 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. Roots music
High The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding Roots music.
Mid The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history of Roots music. 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 Roots music. 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 Roots music will be rated in this level.
Low The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of Roots music. Few readers outside the Roots music field 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 Roots music, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include most practices and infrastructure of Roots music.

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.


  • Judy Dyble should be re-assessed as mid importance, I contend. Currently commercially significant, and this has brought fervent interest in her historical output.
  • Judy Dyble is a bit more than a Stub class now I think???Jude12 (talk) 22:33, 7 November 2009 (UTC)
  • The Kingston Trio has been nominated as a Featured article as of Sept. 13, 2011. As the primary editor of the article, which is currently an Arts Good Article and within the scope of WP:ROOTS, I would invite any Project members who were so inclined to take a look at it here [1] and add their input. Assessment needed.Sensei48 (talk) 18:20, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
  • The Hackensaw Boys may have risen above start-class quality, especially with recent changes in the article. Perhaps it now approaches a B? Artaxerxes (talk) 15:29, 26 February 2012 (UTC)
  • Ethnomusicology should be reassessed. I'm not sure whether it is a start class still. NikolaiHo 19:47, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
