Wikipedia:WikiProject Cities/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the Cities WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles related to cities. 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 {{WPCities}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:WikiProject Cities articles by quality and Category:WikiProject Cities 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. Also, feel free to contact someone from the Peer Review Volunteer listing.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Cities 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 {{WPCities}} 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):

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

NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class WikiProject Cities articles) NA

Requesting an assessmentEdit

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it (Stub, Start, C-class, B-class, or A-class), please list it below. If you would like your article reviewed for Good or Featured status, please nominate the article at WP:GAN or WP:FAC, respectively. If you would like comments by more than one individual on improving your article, without an explicit rating, nominate your article for Peer Review.
