Wikipedia:WikiProject Calvinism/Assessment

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

Simple howtoEdit

The basic processEdit

  • 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 Calvinism)

Finding an article to assess: the tagging processEdit

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


Article Scope TemplateEdit

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 Calvinism 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.


Quality assessmentsEdit

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

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

Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Calvinism articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Calvinism articles)   FL

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 Calvinism articles) Category

After assessing an article's quality, any comments on the assessment can be added to the article's talk page.

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentEdit

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WPCalvinism/Article Scope}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WPCalvinism/Article Scope| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scaleEdit

Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Top The article is one of the core topics about Calvinism. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are included as sections of the main Calvinism article. A reader who is not involved in the field of Calvinism 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. Calvinism
High The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding Calvinism.
Mid The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history of Calvinism. 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 Calvinism. 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 Calvinism will be rated in this level.
Low The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of Calvinism. Few readers outside the Calvinism field or that are not adherents to atheism 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 Calvinism, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include most practices and infrastructure of Calvinism.
