Wikipedia:WikiProject Canoeing and Kayaking/Assessment

This page focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Canoieng and Kayaking 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 {{Canoeing and Kayaking}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories
