FAQs[edit]

What is the purpose of article assessments? 
The assessment system allows a WikiProject to monitor the quality of articles in its subject areas, and to prioritize work on these articles. The ratings are also used by the "Wikipedia 1.0 program to prepare for static releases of Wikipedia content.
Are these ratings official? 
Not really; these ratings are meant primarily for the internal use of the project, and usually do not imply any official standing within Wikipedia as a whole.
Who can assess articles? 
In general, anyone can add or change an article's rating. However, the "GA" and "FA" labels should only be used on articles that have been reviewed and are currently designated as "good articles or "featured articles, respectively. Individual WikiProjects may also have more formal procedures for rating an article, and please note that the WikiProject bears ultimate responsibility for resolving disputes.
How do I assess an article? 
Consult the quality scale below; once you have chosen the level that seems to be closest to the article, set the class parameter in the WikiProject banner template to the level's name (omitting "Class" from the end). For example, to rate an article as "B-Class", use |class=B in the banner. Again, the "FA" and "GA" labels should not be added to articles unless are currently designated as such.
Someone put a project banner template on an article, but it's not really within the WikiProject's scope. What should I do? 
Because of the large number of articles we deal with, we occasionally make mistakes and add tags to articles that shouldn't have them. If you notice one, feel free to remove the tag, and optionally leave a note on the article's talk page (or directly with the person who tagged the article).
What if I don't agree with a rating? 
Feel free to change it—within reason—if you think a different rating is justified; in the case of major disputes, the WikiProject as a whole can discuss the issue and come to a consensus as to the best rating.
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!
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 the article is within this project's scope but doesn't have a project banner on its talk page? 
Due to the large number of articles we cover, not all articles within our scope can be tagged. However you can help increase the number of tagged articles by tagging the talk page of any untagged articles within our scope you come across with {{Engineering}}.

How to rate articles[edit]

Any member of Wikiproject Engineering are invited to rate articles for the project. Articles with unassessed quality can be found at "Category:Unassessed Engineering articles and articles with unassessed importance ratings can be found at "Category:Unknown-importance Engineering articles

An article's quality assessment is generated from the class parameter in any of the project banners found on article's talk page:

For example adding {{Engineering|class=B|importance=mid}} produces:

"WikiProject Engineering (Rated B-class, Mid-importance)
""WikiProject icon This page is within the scope of "WikiProject Engineering, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of "engineering on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the "discussion and see a list of open tasks.
""B-Class article "B  This page does not require a rating on the project's "quality scale.
 "Mid  This page has been rated as Mid-importance on the project's "importance scale.
 

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

{{WikiProject Engineering|class=???}}

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

FA (for "featured articles only; adds articles to "Category:FA-Class Engineering articles) ""Featured article "FA 
A (adds articles to "Category:A-Class Engineering articles) ""A-Class article "A 
GA (for "good articles only; adds articles to "Category:GA-Class Engineering articles)  "GA 
B (adds articles to "Category:B-Class Engineering articles) ""B-Class article "B 
C (adds articles to "Category:C-Class Engineering articles) ""C-Class article "C 
Start (adds articles to "Category:Start-Class Engineering articles) ""Start-Class article "Start 
Stub (adds articles to "Category:Stub-Class Engineering articles) ""Stub-Class article "Stub 
FL (for "featured lists only; adds articles to "Category:FL-Class Engineering articles) ""Featured list "FL 
List (adds articles to "Category:List-Class Engineering articles)  "List 

For pages that are not articles, the following values can also be used for the class parameter:

Category (for "categories; adds pages to "Category:Category-Class Engineering articles) ""Category page "Category 
Disambig (for "disambiguation pages; adds pages to "Category:Disambig-Class Engineering articles) ""Disambiguation page "Disambig 
Draft (for "drafts; adds pages to "Category:Draft-Class Engineering articles)  "Draft 
File (for "files and "timed text; adds pages to "Category:File-Class Engineering articles)  "File 
Portal (for "portal pages; adds pages to "Category:Portal-Class Engineering articles)  "Portal 
Project (for "project pages; adds pages to "Category:Project-Class Engineering articles)  "Project 
Template (for "templates and "modules; adds pages to "Category:Template-Class Engineering articles)  "Template 
NA (for any other pages where assessment is unnecessary; adds pages to "Category:NA-Class Engineering articles)  "NA 
??? (articles for which a valid class has not yet been provided are listed in "Category:Unassessed Engineering articles)  "??? 
"Top
"High
"Mid
"Low

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

"High
{{"High-Class}}
Subject is extremely notable, but has not achieved international notability, or is only notable within a particular continent.
"Mid
{{"Mid-Class}}
Subject is only notable within its particular field or subject and has achieved notability in a particular place or area.
"Low
{{"Low-Class}}
Subject is not particularly notable or significant even within its field of study. It may only be included to cover a specific part of a notable article.

Requesting an assessment[edit]

  • I've rated it as start-class (due to short length, lack of wikilinks, and few sources) and mid-importance. Anyone should feel free to "be bold in changing the assessment if they disagree, since both ratings are just my opinion. --Explodicle ("T/"C) 00:38, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
