Wikipedia:WikiProject Lehigh Valley/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment of the WikiProject Lehigh Valley. This page focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Lehigh Valley articles. The article ratings are used within the project itself to aid in recognizing excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

Quality scaleEdit

Note: A B-class article should have at least one reference.

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 military history. 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.
