Wikipedia:WikiProject Galicia/Assessment

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

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

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 Galicia articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Galicia articles) ???

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added either to the article's talk page or to the /Comments subpage which will appear as a link next to the assessment. Adding comments will add the article to Category:Galicia articles with comments. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentEdit

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

{{WikiProject Galicia| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scaleEdit

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about Galicia. Generally, these topics are sub-articles of the main Galicia article, vital for the understanding of Galicia or extremely notable to people outside of Galicia. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members. Biographies should be limited to the top one or two Galicia in a particular field or persons of the greatest historical importance
High Topics that are very notable within Galicia, and well-known outside of it, and can be reasonably expected to be included in any print encyclopedia. This includes cities with a population of more than 100,000
Mid Topics that are reasonably notable on a national level within Galicia without necessarily being famous or very notable internationally, including smaller towns
Low Topics of mostly local interest or those that are only included for complete coverage or as examples of a higher-level topic; peripheral or trivial topics or topics that have only a limited connection to Galicia
