Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/Assessment

WikiProject Christianity

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

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 Christianity 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 assessments edit

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

{{ChristianityWikiProject|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 Christianity articles)   FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Christianity articles)   A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Christianity articles)   GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Christianity articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Christianity articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Christianity articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Christianity articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Christianity articles)   FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Christianity articles) List

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

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

Quality scale edit

Importance assessment edit

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

{{ChristianityWikiProject| ... | 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 Christianity. Articles in this area should be limited to those which could, reasonably, be found in any encyclopedia regarding Christianity. A reader who is not involved in the field of Christianity 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. Christianity
High The article covers a topic that contributes a depth of knowledge regarding Christianity. A reader who is not all that familiar with Christianity will likely be familiar with the subject and many details of it. Noah's Ark
Mid The article covers a topic that is important to at least one field within the broad field of Christianity, and that contributes relevant details regarding the subject. 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 Christianity. Due to the topics covered at this level, Mid-importance articles will generally have more technical terms used in the article text. Most people whose involvement with Christianity in general has been of such impact that a broad understanding of Christianity is not possible without some knowledge of them will be rated in this level. Ark of the Covenant
Low The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of Christianity. Few readers outside the Christianity 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 Christianity, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include most practices and infrastructure of Christianity. Aarhus Cathedral

  • Theology of relational care: This article has some potentially serious issues; it may even be in the wrong broad topic category. At the very least, either the article name is very non-indicative of the article content, or the article content is severely incomplete and overly exlusive. See its Talk page for more details.

  1. ^ For example, this image of the Battle of Normandy is grainy, but very few pictures of that event exist. However, where quite a number of pictures exist, for instance, the moon landing, FPC attempts to select the best of the ones produced.
  2. ^ An image has more encyclopedic value (often abbreviated to "EV" or "enc" in discussions) if it contributes strongly to a single article, rather than contributing weakly to many. Adding an image to numerous articles to gain EV is counterproductive and may antagonize both FPC reviewers and article editors.
  3. ^ While effects such as black and white, sepia, oversaturation, and abnormal angles may be visually pleasing, they often detract from the accurate depiction of the subject.
