Quality: FA-Class | A Class | GA-Class | B-Class | C-Class| Start-Class | Stub Class | Unassessed Importance: Top | High | Mid | Low | Unknown

Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Scotland. This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Scotland 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 recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the {{WP Scotland}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Scotland articles by quality and Category:Scotland articles by importance, which serve as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questionsEdit

How do I add an article to the WikiProject?
Just add {{WP Scotland}} to the talk page; there's no need to do anything else.
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 Scotland WikiProject is free to add—or change—the rating of an article. Please add your name to the list of participants if you wish to assess articles on a regular basis.
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.
Where can I get more comments about my article?
The peer review department can conduct more thorough examination of articles; please submit it for review there.
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 (see, in particular, the disclaimers on the importance scale), 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.
How can I keep track of changes in article ratings?
A full log of changes over the past thirty days is available here. If you are just looking for an overview, however, the statistics may be more accessible.

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 assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WP Scotland}} project banner on its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax):

{{WP Scotland| ... | class=??? | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Scotland articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

The following values may be used for the importance parameter:

The parameter is not used if an article's class is set to NA, and may be omitted in those cases. The importance should be assigned according to the importance scale below.

Quality scaleEdit

Article progress grading scheme
Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Examples
Reserved exclusively for articles that have received "Featured article" status after peer review, and meet the current criteria for featured articles. Definitive. Outstanding, thorough article; a great source for encyclopedic information. No further editing necessary, unless new published information has come to light. Scotland in the High Middle Ages, Scottish National Antarctic Expedition
Provides a well-written, reasonably clear and complete description of the topic, as described in How to write a great article. It should be of a length suitable for the subject, with a well-written introduction and an appropriate series of headings to break up the content. It should have sufficient external literature references, preferably from the "hard" (peer-reviewed where appropriate) literature rather than websites. Should be well illustrated, with no copyright problems. At the stage where it could at least be considered for featured article status, corresponds to the "Wikipedia 1.0" standard. Very useful to readers. A fairly complete treatment of the subject. A non-expert in the subject matter would typically find nothing wanting. May miss a few relevant points. Minor edits and adjustments would improve the article, particularly if brought to bear by a subject-matter expert. In particular, issues of breadth, completeness, and balance may need work. Peer-review would be helpful at this stage. Glenrothes
The article has passed through the Good article nomination process and been granted GA status, meeting the good article standards. This should be used for articles that still need some work to reach featured article standards, but that are otherwise good. Good articles that may succeed in FAC should be considered A-Class articles, but being a Good article is not a requirement for A-Class. Useful to nearly all readers. A good treatment of the subject. No obvious problems, gaps, excessive information. Adequate for most purposes, but other encyclopedias could do a better job. Some editing will clearly be helpful, but not necessary for a good reader experience. If the article is not already fully wikified, now is the time. Scotland, Kirkcaldy
Has several of the elements described in "start", usually a majority of the material needed for a completed article. Nonetheless, it has significant gaps or missing elements or references, needs substantial editing for English language usage and/or clarity, balance of content, or contains other policy problems such as copyright, NPOV or NOR. With NPOV a well written B-class may correspond to the "Wikipedia 0.5" or "usable" standard. Articles that are close to GA status but don't meet the Good article criteria should be B- or Start-class articles. Useful to many, but not all, readers. A casual reader flipping through articles would feel that they generally understood the topic, but a serious student or researcher trying to use the material would have trouble doing so, or would risk error in derivative work. Considerable editing is still needed, including filling in some important gaps or correcting significant policy errors. Articles for which cleanup is needed will typically have this designation to start with. Church of Scotland, Football in Scotland
The article is substantial, but is still missing important content or contains a lot of irrelevant material. The article should have some references to reliable sources, but may still have significant issues or require substantial cleanup. The article is better developed in style, structure and quality than Start-Class, but fails one or more of the criteria for B-Class. It may have some gaps or missing elements; need editing for clarity, balance or flow; or contain policy violations such as bias or trivia. Useful to a casual reader, but would not provide a complete picture for even a moderately detailed study. Considerable editing is needed to close gaps in content and address cleanup issues. Golf in Scotland, Walter Scott
The article has a meaningful amount of good content, but it is still weak in many areas, and may lack a table. For example an article on Africa might cover the geography well, but be weak on history and culture. Has at least one serious element of gathered materials, including any one of the following:
  • a particularly useful picture or graphic
  • multiple links that help explain or illustrate the topic
  • a subheading that fully treats an element of the topic
  • multiple subheadings that indicate material that could be added to complete the article
Not useless. Some readers will find what they are looking for, but most will not. Most articles in this category have the look of an article "under construction" and a reader genuinely interested in the topic is likely to seek additional information elsewhere. Substantial/major editing is needed, most material for a complete article needs to be added. This article usually isn't even good enough for a cleanup tag: it still needs to be built. Battle of Stirling Bridge, Central Lowlands
The article is either a very short article or a rough collection of information that will need much work to bring it to A-Class level. It is usually very short, but can be of any length if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible. May be useless to a reader only passingly familiar with the term. Possibly useful to someone who has no idea what the term meant. At best a brief, informed dictionary definition. Any editing or additional material can be helpful. Queensberry House, Strathspey, Scotland
The article does not exist and needs to be created.      

Importance scaleEdit

Status Template Meaning of Status
Top {{Top-Class}} This article is of the utmost importance to this project, as it forms the basis of all information in a key area.
High {{High-Class}} This article is important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge, or it covers a specific topic which has wide significance.
Mid {{Mid-Class}} This article is relatively important to this project, as it fills in some more specific knowledge of certain areas.
Low {{Low-Class}} This article is of little importance to this project, but it covers a specific area of knowledge and is needed for completeness.
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.

Article importance standardsEdit

  • Cities - Classed as top to high importance.
  • Other places - Generally classed as mid to low importance.
  • Companies - Generally classed as mid to low importance, unless key global players (which should be rated high, not top).
  • Schools - Generally classed as mid to low importance.
  • Biographies - May be classed as high, mid or low importance, depending on global impact for historical figures, and national prominence for contemporary figures. Please do not rate any biographies as top for this project, even if they are part of Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography/Core biographies (all Scots on that list will be rated as high).

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. If you are interested in more extensive comments on an article, please use the peer review department instead.



  • Please assess The Kirna. It is a new article. Alan, 17 August 2019
  • Currently assessed as B Class which is a fair assessment. While a little at times close to possibly being original research, the references are broad and verifiable. Coldupnorth (talk) 19:29, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Please access Knox Academy, substantially rewritten with appropriate context/tone/sources/historical context. 4th August 2019.
  • Currently assessed as C Class. Insufficient coverage and content for B Class - for one of the world's oldest schools, the history section only covers the last century in any detail. Coldupnorth (talk) 19:22, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Assessed as Start Class. Is nearly at C class but needs additional references, wikilinks, etc. Coldupnorth (talk) 19:10, 26 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Currently assessed as B Class which is a fair assessment, although would benefit from expansion on the Flanders section, which as their major foreign posting (with an attack on French fortifications) could be expanded and especially on actions at Glencoe, which are noteworthy Coldupnorth (talk) 23:05, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Reassessed as C Class. Well referenced generally but needs updating and additional references.Coldupnorth (talk) 22:52, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Reassessed as C Class. Well referenced generally but needs updating and additional references. Coldupnorth (talk) 22:43, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Currently assessed as C Class which is a fair assessment. Would benefit from expansion with more on his career, eg all 14 plants discovered and expansion where there is one sentence on his helping establish the new Russian botanical garden. Coldupnorth (talk) 22:25, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Reassessed as C Class. Well referenced but lacking in content and citations in some areas, especially recent developments. Coldupnorth (talk) 22:20, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Reassessed as B Class. The article is well referenced and covers most areas. Needs some updating but is close to meeting most GA criteria. Coldupnorth (talk) 22:00, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Currently assessed as Start Class which is correct. For C/B Class, would need expansion, including notable examples (news search revealed many). Coldupnorth (talk) 21:46, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Currently assessed as B Class which is a reasonable assessment but only just. Needs a substantial edit to GA as much of the article is a list of publications. Would benefit from images. Coldupnorth (talk) 21:38, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Can someone please assess Frightened Rabbit? It was just recently added to this Wikiproject; however, it needs to be rated.
  • Currently assessed as B Class which is a reasonable assessment. Would benefit from additional references. Coldupnorth (talk) 21:27, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Assessed as C Class but at the low end, in that there are substantial areas without citations and significant gaps, especially in recent history (eg lacking in 20th century developments and EU law influence on Scots law). Coldupnorth (talk) 21:19, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Assessed currently as C Class. While the article is substantial in some areas, there are many unreferenced paragraphs and areas requiring citation so does not meet the criteria for B-class yet. Coldupnorth (talk) 21:12, 25 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Assessed currently as C Class. For B Class, the article would benefit from additional references, especially book/journal sources on the history of the site and collections. Further information on museum facilities as well as additional images would be needed Coldupnorth (talk) 21:30, 23 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Please access Baxter Park, rewritten and expanded version of an article that was merged by AFD in 2009 due to there being no mention of its history and heritage status at the time. EdwardUK (talk) 16:19, 7 March 2019 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Assessed currently as Start Class. Article requires expansion, with references to look at topics on subjects such as layout, landmarks, fauna/flora, facilities, etc. Coldupnorth (talk) 21:19, 23 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your reassessment, @LordHarris:. I have noted your advice about restructuring. Mike Marchmont (talk) 09:24, 13 September 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Please assess Rubers Law - no longer a stub, approaching GA yet? Silence-is-infinite (talk) 12:22, 7 March 2015 (UTC):* I have assessed this as C-class as it does contain a useful amount of information, with reliable referencing. It would be of use to a casual reader, but anyone wanting to do a more detailed study would have to look elsewhere. There is certainly scope to expand this article.Reply[reply]
  • Please assess Edinburgh College (overhauled and not previously assessed) LiamMcS (talk) 14:06, 13 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I have assessed this as C-class as it does contain a useful amount of information, with reliable referencing. It would be of use to a casual reader, but anyone wanting to do a more detailed study would have to look elsewhere. There is certainly scope to expand this article. Davidkinnen (talk) 13:56, 16 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Boclair Academy needs to be assessed. I just added it to the wikiproject. Thanks.
  • I've given it a C-class, but its possibly at the low end. There are parts of the article that are unreferenced and those that are are done using raw web links. {{cite web}} can be used, its not mandatory but it does ensure that the correct format is used. Pyrotec (talk) 09:35, 10 July 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • There are other issues that need to be addressed first, principally those flags at the top of the article. If notability is not established, it is likely to be deleated (regardedless of whether it has an assessment). It also needs a good clean up. There are web references that are semi-raw, if this statement is not understood I suggest that the template {{cite web}} is used as an aid. I also suggest that the Albums section appears at the end: the article at present looks like a list with a few paragraphs stuck on the end; that, I suggest, is not the impression that is intended to give, but it might seal its fate. Pyrotec (talk) 17:36, 10 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Sure. It's not my article but I plan to clean up a lot of the UK university a cappella articles, as many of them are of poor quality. I will request an assessment again once these changes have been made. Thanks for the help. MrMarkBGregory 21:53, 10 July 2011
  • Assessed as C-class, Mid. Possibly is not too far off being a B-class. Minor problems of consistency, most citations appear after the full stop (period for US editors) but not all. Claims are being made about living people (nothing appears to be controversal), but many of these statements are not supported by citations which make make them WP:verifiable. Fixing these would possible get it most of the way to B-class. I've not heard them (or heard of them) so I must do something to rectify that. Pyrotec (talk) 21:48, 8 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Assessed as C-class. Sorry this took so long. Ben MacDui 18:11, 8 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Forfar needs assessment. Luconst 00:56, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
  • I've reassessed it as C-class. There are several unreferenced sections, which rule out B-class. Pyrotec (talk) 09:16, 18 March 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • I've reassessed it as C-class. Its quite well referenced, but each of the lists would be better if they were all sorted into alphabetic order (so are, some aren't). The references could do with formating. Books (and journals) usually have their title in italics, author(s), publisher, date (Or, the Havard system is used). Some titles seem to have "by" before the author; and almost none (perhaps none) of the book/journal references give page numbers. For these reasons, its not B-class. Pyrotec (talk) 18:09, 12 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • If the references were all done like the two in the Demographics subsection, I'd be more inclined to give it a C-class. At the moment, its just raw web links bunged into the sentences. Using {{cite web}} to format those links would also help. If you don't understand what I'm talking about, drop me a note. Have you looked at the book: The Third Statistical Account of Scotland for Aberdeen? They probably have a referenced copy in one of the central libraries. You should be able to look up the particular parish, which would save some of the "It is rumoured that ..." statments in Origin. Pyrotec (talk) 18:24, 12 November 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Done - an excellent start. Ben MacDui 07:27, 12 October 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
A good quess. A case could be made for both C and B, but since some sections are unreferenced and others have {citations needed} flags, I'm being "mean" and adding C class/Mid. Pyrotec (talk) 22:24, 10 August 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • New Kilpatrick pulled together from various sources. I assume B class, mid or low importance but would like 2nd opinion. Wikiwayman (talk) 18:56, 1 July 2010 (UTC) It's a good start, but I've given it a "C" for now. The lead does not summarise the article, the section headers are a bit peculiar in one or two cases, the Brittanica entry should be used as source for existing sections not just quoted at length as a separate section, the CAPS there are unnecessary, and there are one or two other oddities. B is well within sight tho' and I encourage you to press on. Let me know if you want any assistance. Ben MacDui 17:50, 2 July 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Have added to page for Clola to give it more detail - apologies if I've done this incorrectly, it's the first time I've tried! Done - start/low. Ben MacDui 19:57, 17 May 2010 (UTC) Thank you!Reply[reply]
  • Please assess Scottish Environment Protection Agency for class and importance. It now has had major improvement edits to it. Thanks. Buckston (talk) 11:36, 9 May 2010 (UTC) Done - B/High Ben MacDui 21:18, 17 May 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Just noticed that William Lamb (artist) hasn't been assessed yet. (talk). Assessed as: C-class, Mid-importance; but quite close to be B-class. Pyrotec (talk) 20:25, 13 April 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Montrose Academy has not yet been assessed by this wikiproject. Lcw27 (talk) C/Mid - Done.
  • Royal Standard of Scotland Has not been assessed yet by this Wikiproject. Endrick Shellycoat 17:08, 28 August 2009 (UTC) - assessed as B-class / high. A possible GA-candidate but I think you need to be a bit of work on the WP:Lead first. Pyrotec (talk) 18:43, 28 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Have added some detail to lead, but not sure if sufficient. Endrick Shellycoat 11:08, 31 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry, I'm not going to say whether it's GA class or not, that is what peer review is intended to support; but if you submit it to WP:GAN, I might review it. There are also other WP Scotland members who do GAN reviews. The WP:Lead is intended to both provide an introduction (which it does well) and a summary of the main points. The article has a bolted on" section on the National Flag, that for instance is not mentioned in the Lead. Pyrotec (talk) 18:43, 31 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Don't apologise - you've pointed me in the right direction which was all I was hoping for. Thanks & regards. Endrick Shellycoat 19:09, 31 August 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Borderline Start/C-class. I am not too familiar with the new "C" yet, and I have given it C based on good npov text and many refs, but feel free to downgrade to Start. --Mais oui! (talk) 13:16, 29 January 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Deaconsbank I've gave this page a major overhaul since it was graded as a stub class article and I've mentioned a lot more of the history of the area, i know the page could be improved further so any pointers will be appreciated. Thanks Brydo16 (talk) 01:23, 4 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've reclassified it as Start-class. You might like to have a look at Wikipedia:WikiProject UK geography/How to write about settlements as a guideline for expanding the article. You don't actually have any references (in-line citations); what is listed in the references is actually External links, see e.g. WP:verify. With suitable references and in-line citations, you might get it up to C-class. Have a look at, for example Ralston; it is currently listed as C-class (but it does not have any references, so perhaps it should come down to start class).Pyrotec (talk) 12:42, 4 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank You Pyrotec I will be making changes for the better to improve the article and sort out a better refrencing system Brydo16 (talk) 18:50, 4 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Carnoustie I've made a number of significant changes to this article since it was graded start class. If it's not improved in rating, some pointers might help! Catfish Jim and the soapdish (talk) 09:43, 31 August 2008 (UTC). Reassessed as C-class, rather than B-class because of lack of references / in-line citations. Much of the text is good, but it is unreferenced. (1) Try borrowing a copy of the Third Statistical Accounts of Scotland for say Dundee, that will give you references to use. (2) some of your wikilinks are "strange" or missing, why for example give Dundee to Arbroath railway, with three links, instead of Dundee and Arbroath Railway (suggests lack of historical knowledge)? Wikilinks are also patchy, Linen and flex are linked, but not jute, salmon, Pictish, Norse, Gaelic, malt, sulphuric acid, etc. Better links and more references would make in a B-class (you could try for GA if you are that keen).Pyrotec (talk) 08:35, 1 September 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Ravenscraig - I have made huge improvements to this article, starting practically from scratch, getting a good image, an infobox etc... can someone have a look at it and make any comments/recommendations? much obliged. ← κεηηε∂γ (talk) (contribs) 08:41, 9 April 2008 (UTC). I've just rated it as Start / Low Importance. You've made a good start on it; and it is looking good, but your history is rather light, as are your references, so there is not much in the way of verification. Improve those and it could go up to Mid almost straight away. Your first web reference has a lot of info about Colvilles, which you don't mention. Thus there is a link to General Terminus Quay (see General Terminus and Glasgow Harbour Railway) and Hunterston Ore terminal - neither of which are mentioned. I'm not trying to talk the article down - there is enough written info about to get the article up to class B / High importance, you don't seem to have captured any of it. There is also a lot of information from the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency about the pollution on the site - which you have not yet found. This is not meant as discouragement - sorry if it comes across that way. I've not been anywhere near the site since 2000, so I cannot comment on those aspects of the article.Pyrotec (talk) 16:17, 9 April 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • Scottish Water has been updated. Please review. Reviewed. Keeping it as a stub- it lacks the elements listed for a start class article (such as a table or picture) and could do with some cleaning up. I've also rated it as mid importance.

  • Clan Fraser has yet to recieve any real assesment. I would love some outside view. I've self-rated it a B article, as it has not gained GA status, though I think it's better than B. Also rated it of High importance. It's of border-line importance, between high and mid, and I wasn't sure.   Canæn   08:03, 12 March 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • 2007 Glasgow International Airport attack is currently rated in category "Low-importance Scotland articles"; please reassess this rating - Bevo 18:28, 3 July 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Achfary has no rating as of yet on the importance scale; can I request for it to be rated? It's a very small village, but it had a huge impact on the area in the past, so I'd say it would be quite important to get this article completed.

    I would assessed it as almost start-class, you have some references which is good, but it really needs a bit of expansion and at least one picture; could you add a History section? Can I suggest also that you add an info box - such as in Arisaig - you can do a copy and paste into Achfary; and then correct it. Pyrotec (talk) 17:45, 18 November 2008 (UTC)Reply[reply]
