The WikiProject Jewish history article assessment system is used to rate and improve articles under WP Jewish history. We use the standard Wikipedia rating system, as follows:

How To Assess an ArticleEdit

An article's assessment is generated from the class parameter in the WikiProject Jewish history project banner on the article's talk page. Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Jewish history-related articles. At present, there are over ? Jewish history articles that need assessment (e.g., that need to have a class inserted in the class parameter of the template).

Jewish history-related articles to be assessed have some aspects of the template on their talk page, but the template may be incomplete. First, select an article from the list at Category:Unassessed Jewish history-related articles. Then, look over the article in anticipation of filling out the parameters of the Jewish history template. Next, replace the WikiProject Jewish history template on the article talk page with the following:

{{WikiProject Jewish history
|nested =
|small=
|class=
|importance=}}

The above {{WikiProject Jewish history}} template has all the answers that you will need for most situations. From your review of the article, delete those answers and parameters that do not fit the article. Then, fill in the listas parameter (e.g., last name, first name), then save. And, you are done!


Class parameterEdit

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

Importance parameterEdit

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

{{WikiProject Jewish history|importance=???}}

The following values may be used for the importance parameter to describe the relative importance of the article within the project:

Top (adds articles to Category:Top-importance Jewish history-related articles)  Top

The importance parameter should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Quality scaleEdit

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

Importance scaleEdit

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.
