Welcome to the assessment department of the Sri Lanka WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Sri Lanka or the people of Sri Lanka. 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 Sri Lanka}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Sri Lanka articles by quality and Category:Sri Lanka articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist. For an up to date list of all articles with in this project see [1].

An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Sri Lanka}} project banner on its talk page:

{{WikiProject Sri Lanka

The following values may be used for the class parameter:

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

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 Sri Lanka.

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.

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.
High {{High-Class}} This article is fairly important to this project, as it covers a general area of knowledge.
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 highly specific area of knowledge or an obscure piece of trivia.
None None This article is of unknown importance to this project. It remains to be analyzed.

Importance assessmentEdit

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

{{WikiProject Sri Lanka| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

* Aloko Udapadi -  Definitely not Stub-Level by now. If you can make it to higher please. Thank you. --Ceylonlion (talk) 09:59, 27 November 2016 (UTC)
* Asha de Vos - this article has been further expanded since it was classed as a stub and I believe it should now be rated as start-class or C-class. Delphine Dallison (talk) 19:46, 20 November 2018 (UTC)
