Wikipedia:WikiProject Radio/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the Radio WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's radio 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 {{WikiProject Radio}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Radio articles by quality and Category:Radio 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 Radio 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.


Quality assessmentsEdit

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

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article (see Wikipedia:Content assessment for assessment criteria):

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentEdit

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

{{WikiProject Radio| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scaleEdit

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about Radio. Generally, these topics are sub-articles of the main Radio article, vital for the understanding of Radio or extremely notable to people outside of the radio field. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members.
High Topics that are very notable within the radio field, and well-known outside of it, and can be reasonably expected to be included in any print encyclopedia.
Mid Topics that are reasonably notable on a national level within the radio field without necessarily being famous or very notable outside of it.
Low Topics of little interest outside of the radio field or those that are only included for complete coverage or as examples of a higher-level topic; peripheral or trivial topics or topics that have only a limited connection to radio
