Wikipedia:WikiProject King Arthur/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the King Arthur WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Arthurian studies 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 {{WP King Arthur}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:King Arthur articles by quality and Category:King Arthur 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 King Arthur 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 others 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 {{WP King Arthur}} project banner on its talk page:

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentEdit

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

{{WP King Arthur| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

For discussion regarding which articles should be counted as which level of importance to the project, please see Wikipedia:WikiProject King Arthur/Importance.

Importance scaleEdit

Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Top The article is one of the core topics about Arthurian studies. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are included as sections of the main King Arthur article. A reader who is not involved in the field of Arthurian studies will have high familiarity with the subject matter and should be able to relate to the topic easily. Articles in this importance range are written in mostly generic terms, leaving technical terms and descriptions for more specialized pages. King Arthur
High The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding Arthurian studies.
Mid The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history of Arthurian studies. Many readers will be familiar with the topic being discussed, but a larger majority of readers may have only cursory knowledge of the overall subject. Articles at this level will cover subjects that are well known but not necessarily vital to understand Arthurian studies. Due to the topics covered at this level, Mid-importance articles will generally have more technical terms used in the article text. Most of the people and characters involved in Arthurian studies will be rated in this level.
Low The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of Arthurian studies. Few readers outside the Arthurian studies field may be familiar with this matter. It is likely that the reader does not know anything at all about the subject before reading the article. Articles at this range of importance will often delve into the minutiae of Arthurian studies, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed.

Requesting an 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.

  • Importance assessment request: Perceval. Written by the famous French poet, Chétien de Troyes, Perceval (The Grail Knight) plays an integral part in the construction and representation of the Arthurian time period's fictitious characters. The article is listed as low importance, however, I feel as though middle importance it due. ItsPugle 01:20, 25 February 2018 (UTC)
  • Val Sans Retour: I have made significant changes to the article, I feel it could be updated from stub to start class Antknight (talk) 07:22, 17 May 2021 (UTC)
