Wikipedia:WikiProject Portugal/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the Portugal WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Portugal or the people of Portugal. 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 Portugal}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:WikiProject Portugal articles, 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 Portugal 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.



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

{{WikiProject Portugal|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 Portugal articles)   FA
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Portugal articles)   A
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Portugal articles)   GA
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Portugal articles) B
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Portugal articles) C
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Portugal articles) Start
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Portugal articles) Stub
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Portugal articles)   FL
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Portugal articles) List

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 Portugal articles) Category
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Portugal articles) Disambig
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Portugal articles) Draft
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Portugal articles) File
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Portugal articles) Portal
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Portugal articles) Project
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Portugal articles) Redirect
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Portugal articles) Template
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Portugal articles) NA
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Portugal articles) ???

Quality scaleEdit


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

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

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.

  • I have recently made improvements to the Belém Tower article trying to follow all the style rules and meet the quality criteria. I think it follows pretty well, but I am not certain how comprehensive it is. It has not previously been assessed for quality in WikiProject Portugal. I also rated it with mid level importance, maybe someone else should check that too. Thought you might want to know that one of the articles in your project has been improved, Strafpeloton2 (talk) 01:04, 22 December 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I just translated to EnWiki an article I created in PtWiki: Jorge Ferreira Chaves, and I would like an outside opinion about it. Thank you.Quiiiz (talk) 03:08, 29 September 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Although I didn't edit the article, I'd like to ask Henry_the_Navigator to be reassessed as being of top importance, as I feel that someone with such global historical impact is woefully misrepresented by "only" a medium rating. Maegil (talk) 00:13, 27 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Manoel de Oliveira - expanded and rewritten. I would also like to request an assessment on the pages importance scale. --Deoliveirafan (talk) 04:42, 24 November 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Tarrafal concentration camp - translated from ptwiki. --BunnyyHop (talk) 18:57, 17 February 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
