Welcome to the assessment department of the Colombia WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Colombia or the people of Colombia. 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 {{WikiProject Colombia}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Colombia articles by quality and Category:Colombia articles by importance, which serve 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 Colombia WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
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.

Instructions edit

Quality assessment edit

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

{{WikiProject Colombia|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 Colombia articles)  FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Colombia articles)  A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Colombia articles)  GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Colombia articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Colombia articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Colombia articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Colombia articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Colombia articles)  FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Colombia 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 Colombia articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Colombia articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Colombia articles) Draft
FM (for featured media only; adds pages to Category:FM-Class Colombia articles)  FM
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Colombia articles) File
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Colombia articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Colombia articles) Project
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Colombia articles) Redirect
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Colombia articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Colombia articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Colombia articles) ???

The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

Quality scale edit

Importance assessment edit

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

{{WikiProject Colombia|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 Colombia articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Colombia articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Colombia articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Colombia articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Colombia articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Colombia 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 or teachers learning about Colombia.

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.

Status Template Meaning of Status
Top {{Top-Class}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information.
High {{High-Class}} This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge.
Mid {{Mid-Class}} This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas.
Low {{Low-Class}} This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia.
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.

Requesting an assessment edit

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion on a new rating for it, please feel free to list it below.

  1. Manuel Uribe Ángel
  2. León de Greiff
  3. Battle of Cartagena de Indias extensively rewritten, referenced, etc, please assess for B.Tttom1 (talk) 23:50, 15 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  4. University of Antioquia. It's rated right now as Stub-Class. I think I did a decent cleanup. Wfox (talk) 20:48, 29 December 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  5. Oicatá. The text (§ History) was a horrible thorn-thicket of machine mistranslation. I did my best to clean it up and give it some structure (comparison here), but it should be reviewed by someone who is actually fluent in Spanish. — Also, can someone take a look at "commissariat" in Wiktionary? It mentioned only the USSR. I've added Colombia, but I'm not sure if the term is still used or not. I did find a recent possible source, but I don't think it's really reliable. The CIA Factbook is reliable, but this is the 1993 edition and I don't know if its data is still accurate.
    Please {{Ping}} me to discuss. --Thnidu (talk) 23:26, 16 June 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  6. Timeline of Cartagena, Colombia
  7. Quercus humboldtii -- Frank R 1981 (talk) 07:54, 24 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
