General information



edit · changes

Welcome to the assessment department of the Myanmar WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Myanmar or the people of Myanmar. 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 Myanmar (Burma)}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Myanmar articles by quality, 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 Myanmar WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article.
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 Burma (Myanmar)}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Burma (Myanmar)|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 Myanmar articles)   FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Myanmar articles)   A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Myanmar articles)   GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Myanmar articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Myanmar articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Myanmar articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Myanmar articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Myanmar articles)   FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Myanmar articles) List
SIA (for set index articles; adds articles to Category:SIA-Class Myanmar articles) SIA
Current (for articles about current events; adds articles to Category:Current-Class Myanmar articles) Current
Future (for articles about future events; adds articles to Category:Future-Class Myanmar articles) Future

For non-standard grades and non-mainspace content, the following values may be used for the class parameter:

Category (for categories; adds pages to Category:Category-Class Myanmar articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Myanmar articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Myanmar articles) Draft
FM (for featured media only; adds pages to Category:FM-Class Myanmar articles)   FM
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Myanmar articles) File
Needed (for articles that do not yet exist, but have been identified as subjects that should be covered; adds pages to Category:Needed-Class Myanmar articles) Needed
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Myanmar articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Myanmar articles) Project
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Myanmar articles) Redirect
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Myanmar articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Myanmar articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Myanmar articles) ???

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentsEdit

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

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

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.

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.

  1. Irrawaddy River - Significant additions have been made to the article over the past few months, though it is still listed as Stub-class. Can someone reassess the article and leave a few to-dos? Thanks in advance, Pim Rijkee (talk) 13:27, 1 October 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  2. Shooting an Elephant has had some (significant) additions. Could you take a look? - Skittles the hog (talk) 20:37, 10 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  3. Internal conflict in Myanmar - I have worked a lot on this article over the past four months, correcting a lot of grammatical mistakes, punctuation, sentence strucutre, etc. I was wondering if it could be re-evaluated. - CentreLeftRight 06:14, 28 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  4. Philip Adolphe Klier and Max Henry Ferrars are two articles on foreign photographers active in British Burma towards the end of the 19th century. I have added photographs that illustrate their work documenting the society of Burma in those years.Munfarid1 (User:Munfarid1talk) 13:37, 22 December 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  5. Aungpan- I am from this town and I contributed a lot to this article over the past two months, adding additional information, reliable sources, and illustrations. Could you guys please take a look at it and reconsider the rating. It would help a lot, thank you in advance, Kmthu.ytu (talk) 13:02, 2 June 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
