Wikipedia:WikiProject Big 12 Conference/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the Big 12 WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Big 12. 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 Big 12}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Big 12 Conference articles by quality and Category:Big 12 Conference articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questionsEdit

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 Big 12 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 Big 12}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Big 12

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Big 12 Conference articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentEdit

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Big 12}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Big 12| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scaleEdit

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 Big 12.

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 certain audiences—but which are of high notability in other places—should still be highly rated.

Status Template Meaning of Status
Top {{Top-Class}} Main articles of member schools (e.g. Texas Tech University), their primary atheltics pages (e.g. Texas A&M Aggies), and the Big 12 Conference page.
High {{High-Class}} The sports teams within the universities (e.g. Nebraska Cornhuskers football), rivalries (e.g. Red River Rivalry), bowls in which the Big 12 is affiliated with on a yearly basis (e.g. Alamo Bowl), tournaments (e.g. Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament)
Mid {{Mid-Class}} Yearly Bowls (e.g. 2008 Cotton Bowl Classic), Yearly Tournaments (e.g. 2008 Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament), or seasons (e.g. 2005 Texas Longhorns football team)
Low {{Low-Class}} Coaches (e.g. Bob Knight), Players (e.g. Sam Bradford), Mascots (e.g. Truman the Tiger) and member school sporting venues (e.g. Frank Erwin Center). Note: Only players and coaches that competed in Big 12 Sports (see The Big 12 Handbook ) when their school was a part of the Big 12 conference should be included.
