Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Georgia! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's State of Georgia related articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the Version 1.0 program for publication of a stable version of Wikipedia, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

Any WikiProject Georgia member may assess an article, with the exception of two levels: FA-class and GA-class. These two levels can only be awarded after passing the corresponding candidacy WP:FAC for Featured Article class, and WP:GAC for Good Article class. The complete level breakdown is explained in detail below.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Georgia (U.S. state) articles by quality and Category:Georgia (U.S. state) articles by importance. The quality and importance ratings serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. (Index · Statistics · Log)

Frequently asked questionsEdit

How can I get my article rated?
As a member of the WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state), you can do it yourself. If you're unsure, list it in the requesting an assessment section below.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) is free to add—or change—the rating of an article, but please follow the guidelines.
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.
Where can I get more comments about my article?
Contact Wikipedia:WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) who will handle it or assign the issue to someone. You may also list it for a Peer review.
What if I don't agree with a rating?
Relist it as a request or contact Wikipedia:WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) who will handle it or assign the issue to someone.
Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are (see, in particular, the disclaimers on the importance scale), 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, or to contact the Wikipedia:WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) directly.


An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)}} project banner on its talk page. You can learn the syntax by looking at the talk pages in edit mode and by reading the info below.

This is the rating syntax (ratings and dates are samples, change to what applies to the article in question):

{{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)}}
  • displays the default banner, showing the project info and only ??? for the quality and importance parameters.
{{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)|class=FA|importance=Top}}
  • all assessed articles should have quality and importance filled in. Leaving the other parameters off does not hurt anything.
{{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)|class=Start|importance=Mid|attention=yes}}
  • if an article needs immediate attention, add the attention tag and please leave talk notes as to why. "yes" is the only valid parameter here. If it doesn't need attention, leave the parameter off.

Quality assessmentEdit

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in the {{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)|class=???}}

Quality scaleEdit

Articles covered by WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state) are assessed based on the level of content they provide. Any user may assess an article, with the exception of two levels: FA-class and GA-class. These two levels can only be awarded after passing the corresponding candidacy WP:FAC for FA-class, and WP:GAC for GA-class. The level breakdown is explained in detail below.

Importance assessmentEdit

An article's importance assessment is generated from the importance parameter in the {{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Georgia (U.S. state)|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 Georgia (U.S. state) articles)  Top 
High (adds articles to Category:High-importance Georgia (U.S. state) articles)  High 
Mid (adds articles to Category:Mid-importance Georgia (U.S. state) articles)  Mid 
Low (adds articles to Category:Low-importance Georgia (U.S. state) articles)  Low 
NA (adds articles to Category:NA-importance Georgia (U.S. state) articles)  NA 
??? (articles for which a valid importance rating has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unknown-importance Georgia (U.S. state) articles)  ??? 

Importance scaleEdit

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 of hagiography. Importance does not equate to quality; a featured article could rate 'mid' on importance.

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. Rate international region/country-specific articles from the prespective of someone from that region.

Requesting an assessment or re-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. If you are interested in more extensive comments on an article, please use the peer review department instead.

Assessment LogEdit

The logs in this section are generated automatically (on a daily basis); please don't add entries to them by hand.

Unexpected changes, such as downgrading an article, or raising it more than two assessment classes at once, are shown in bold.
