Welcome to the assessment department of the Northern Ireland WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles related to Northern Ireland. 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 Northern Ireland}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Northern Ireland-related articles by quality and Category:Northern Ireland-related articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated log.

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 Northern Ireland 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 other questions not listed here, please feel free to ask them on the discussion page for this department.

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.


  • Could I please have an assessment of Eleventh night please? I'm currently the only contributor, the page only being created recently, and would like an outside opinion to see how it can be improved upon.
  • I request an assessment of Ulster Defence Regiment please. A lot of effort has gone into expanding and improving it and it has been rated B Class on the military project. The Thunderer (talk) 23:50, 7 September 2008 (UTC)[]
  • Seanan Clucas is a newly created article. It would be great if this could be assessed. Tedaram (talk) 10:22, 18 August 2011 (UTC)[]
