Article Statistics

Welcome to the assessment department of WikiProject Zimbabwe! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's articles related to Zimbabwe. The article ratings are 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 {{WPZW}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Zimbabwe articles by quality and Category:Zimbabwe articles by importance.

Frequently asked questionsEdit

How can I get my article rated?
Please list it in the section for assessment requests below.
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.
Who can assess articles?
Any member of the Zimbabwe WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
Where can I find articles to assess?
Many articles in Category:Zimbabwe still need to be assessed and any articles in Category:Unassessed Zimbabwe articles and Category:Unknown-importance Zimbabwe articles.

If you have any other questions that aren't listed here, feel free to ask them at the talk page.

How to assess articlesEdit

You can assess articles by placing the {{WPZW}} banner on its talk page (not the article page!) and using the two parameters, class (to assess the quality) and importance (to assess the priority). See also Template:WikiProject Zimbabwe/doc for further instructions.

Quality assessmentsEdit

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

{{WikiProject Zimbabwe|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 Zimbabwe articles)   FA 
FL (for featured lists only; adds articles to Category:FL-Class Zimbabwe articles)   FL 
A (adds articles to Category:A-Class Zimbabwe articles)   A 
GA (for good articles only; adds articles to Category:GA-Class Zimbabwe articles)   GA 
B (adds articles to Category:B-Class Zimbabwe articles)   B 
C (adds articles to Category:C-Class Zimbabwe articles)   C 
Start (adds articles to Category:Start-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Start 
Stub (adds articles to Category:Stub-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Stub 
List (adds articles to Category:List-Class Zimbabwe 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 Zimbabwe articles)   Category 
Disambig (for disambiguation pages; adds pages to Category:Disambig-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Disambig 
Draft (for drafts; adds pages to Category:Draft-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Draft 
File (for files and timed text; adds pages to Category:File-Class Zimbabwe articles)   File 
Portal (for portal pages; adds pages to Category:Portal-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Portal 
Project (for project pages; adds pages to Category:Project-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Project 
Redirect (for redirect pages; adds pages to Category:Redirect-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Redirect 
Template (for templates and modules; adds pages to Category:Template-Class Zimbabwe articles)   Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to Category:NA-Class Zimbabwe articles)   NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Zimbabwe articles)   ??? 

Quality scaleEdit

Importance assessmentsEdit

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

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

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.

Requested assessments

  • Catholic Commission for Justice and Peace in Zimbabwe - New article on CCJPZ.
  • National Youth Service (Zimbabwe) - Rewritten from a stub to provide sources and to include the government POV. Image added under fair use; is it in the public domain in the US? WillOakland (talk) 22:03, 3 July 2008 (UTC)
  • Frederick Russell Burnham - This article on a Rhodesian pioneer has not been categorized or reviewed by WikiProject Zimbabwe, except to add it within the category, but it has just recently been nominated as a Good Article candidate in WP. Additionally, it is considered Top Importance within the Scouting WikiProject and Military People WikiProject categories , and it was selected by the Scouting WikiProjectas the biography of the month for September 2007. The scouting and military folks have made a number of revisions lately to bring it to this point. Thanks for taking a look and for adding your revisions, comments, and assessments. Currently under WP GA assessment. Done, passed GA.
  • British South Africa Company Medal - new article Done.
  • David Coltart - I've been pretty much the only one largely working on this except for the brief arrival of the mysterious Coltart. Btw, did anyone find out what his/her deal was? Was it Coltart himself? Doubt it though. If Gibson Sibanda can earn a B rating I see no reason why David Coltart should not.
There is no way Gibson Sibanda is B class. I have altered the rating. However, David Coltart is still a little way off a B class rating. Well done on all the work achieved so far.Mangwanani 16:02, 26 September 2007 (UTC)
  • Kadoma - The origin of the name and the brief mention of the history of mining in the area need correction and amplification. Could somebody check. I've left a note on the discussion page.Klipdok 15:23, 12 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Banknotes of Zimbabwe — Significant structural changes made in the last month reflecting on the recent phase-out of the second dollar. This article is under rework to eventually reach FA status. --Marianian (talk) 10:01, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
Hi, I have re-assessed the article and I believe it to be as high class as I am able to rate it. For it to have a higher class then you need to go to this page and nominate the article for a GA review. I can't do the review as I have contributed to the page but this is where you will get the best feedback. Mangwanani (talk) 16:25, 7 January 2009 (UTC)
  Done This was requested on 30 April 2009 by me. --Marianian (talk) 20:20, 18 May 2009 (UTC)
