Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Film! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Film 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 {{WikiProject Film}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Film articles by quality, 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.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Film 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.


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

{{WikiProject Film|class=}}

The following values may be used for the |class= parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:WikiProject Film/Assessment#Film grading scheme for assessment criteria):

|class=FA (for featured articles only); adds articles to Category:FA-Class film articles Featured article FA 
|class=GA (for good articles only); adds articles to Category:GA-Class film articles  GA 
|class=B adds articles to Category:B-Class film articles if they meet the B-Class criteria B-Class article B 
|class=C adds articles to Category:C-Class film articles C-Class article C 
|class=Start adds articles to Category:Start-Class film articles Start-Class article Start 
|class=Stub adds articles to Category:Stub-Class film articles Stub-Class article Stub 
|class=FL for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class film articles Featured list FL 
|class=List adds articles to Category:List-Class film articles  List 
|class=SIA for set index articles; adds articles to Category:SIA-Class film articles SIA-Class article SIA 
|class=Disambig for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class film articles Disambiguation page Disambig 

By default, any articles with an empty |class= parameter are added to Category:Unassessed film articles.

For redirects and other pages that are not articles, the class will be set automatically. However, the |class= parameter may still be set manually using the following values:

|class=Book for Wikipedia books; adds pages to Category:Book-Class film articles Wikipedia Book Book 
|class=Category for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class film articles Category page Category 
|class=Draft for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class film articles  Draft 
|class=File for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class film articles  File 
|class=Portal for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class film articles  Portal 
|class=Project for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class film articles  Project 
|class=Redirect for redirects; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class film articles Redirect page Redirect 
|class=Template for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class film articles  Template 
|class=NA for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class film articles  NA 

Core articlesEdit

In lieu of a moribund importance rating, the project has deprecated the importance parameter in favor of a targeted drive towards "core"-type articles as determined by consensus in external lists and polls rather than individual editorial whim. This work is concentrated at the Core department of this WikiProject.

Requests for assessmentEdit

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. (Note that this is not required; any editor may assess or re-assess an article on their own, if acting in good faith.)

If you assess an article, please strike it off so that other editors will not waste time going there too. Comments are not mandatory and any should be left at the article's talk page; the list below will be wiped periodically.

If you are interested in more extensive comments on an article, please list it for peer review instead.
