Articles that are part of WikiProject Brazil are assessed on a combination of factors by placing the {{WikiProject Brazil}} template on an article’s talk page, along with tags for: class, importance, task force, and optional editor flags.

Progress bars Edit

The proportion of all articles with an assessed project banner is:

97.6% assessed (estimate: some more article talk pages may still need a banner)


The proportion of all articles with known importance is:

93.5% known importance (estimate: some more articles may still need a banner)


Assessment Log Edit

The Wikipedia Version 1.0 Editorial Team generates an assessment log of all articles that have been recently renamed, reassessed, assessed or removed.

Class Edit

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

{{WikiProject Brazil|class=???}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):

FA (for featured articles only; adds articles to Category:FA-Class Brazil articles)   FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Brazil articles)   A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Brazil articles)   GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Brazil articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Brazil articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Brazil articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Brazil articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Brazil articles)   FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Brazil articles) List
Future (for articles about future events; adds articles to Category:Future-Class Brazil articles) Future

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Brazil articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Brazil articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Brazil articles) Draft
FM (for featured media only; adds pages to Category:FM-Class Brazil articles)   FM
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Brazil articles) File
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Brazil articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Brazil articles) Project
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Brazil articles) Redirect
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Brazil articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Brazil articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Brazil articles) ???

Importance Edit

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

{{WikiProject Brazil|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project (see Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Priority of topic for assessment criteria):

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

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 Brazil.

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.

Task Force Assessment Edit

There are seven WikiProject Brazil task forces. Not every article will be suited for inclusion in a task force. Some articles may logically be included in more than one. The task forces are:
