Wikipedia:WikiProject Elections and Referendums/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Elections and Referendums! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles related to elections and referendums. The article ratings are used within the project itself to aid in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Elections and Referendums}} project banner.

Frequently asked questionsEdit

How can I get my article rated?
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
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. Alternatively, you can ask any member of the project to rate the article again.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Elections and Referendums WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.

If you have any other questions that are not listed here, feel free to ask them at the talk page.

How to assess articlesEdit

You can assess an article by placing the {{WikiProject Elections and Referendums}} banner on its talk page (not the article page) and using the two parameters, class (to assess the quality) and importance (to assess the priority) (if you are doubtful just leave one of these blank).

Quality assessmentsEdit

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

{{WikiProject Elections and Referendums|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):

Priority assessmentEdit

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