Wikipedia:WikiProject Volcanoes/Volcanism of Canada task force/Assessment

Welcome to the assessment department of the Volcanism of Canada task force! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles about Canadian volcanoes, volcanology, igneous petrology, and related subjects. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment 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 Volcanoes|Canada=yes}} task force banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Volcanism of Canada task force articles by quality and Category:Volcanism of Canada task force articles by importance.

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 Volcanism of Canada task force 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 somewhat subjective, 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.

InstructionsEdit

An article's assessment is generated from the class and importance parameters in the {{WikiProject Volcanoes|Canada=yes}} task force banner on its talk page:

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

{{WikiProject Volcanoes|class=???|Canada=yes}}

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 Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   FA 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   A

B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   Stub 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   FL 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Volcanism of Canada task force 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 Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   Category

??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Volcanism of Canada task force articles)   ??? 

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

{{WikiProject Volcanoes|importance=???|Canada-importance=yes}}

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 Volcanism of Canada task force articles)  Top

Quality scaleEdit

This table is transcluded here, and is identical to the one at Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Assessment.

WikiProject article quality grading scheme

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 volcanologists and others working within the field.

This table has been written specifically for the Volcanism of Canada task force, please read it carefully prior to making assessments of importance. It is currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION, please revise it as needed.

Requesting an assessmentEdit
