Wikipedia:WikiProject Finland/Assessment

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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

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

Frequently asked questions[edit]

If you have made significant changes to an article and would like an outside opinion for it, please consider requesting

How can I get my article rated?
You can request a peer review at WP:PR. Alternately, you can ping and ask any active member of the project to rate the article.
Who can assess articles?
Any editor or member of the Finland WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article per the criteria on their own (except for FA and GA-Classes, which require a peer review through their own systems or A-Class, which requires an independent and thorough peer review).
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 request a peer review at WP:PR. Alternately, you can ping and ask any active member of the project to rate the article again.
Aren't the ratings subjective?
Yes, they are, 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.

Quality scale[edit]

Importance assessment[edit]

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

{{WikiProject Finland| ... | importance=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for importance assessments:

Importance scale[edit]

Label Criteria Examples
Top Core topics about Finland. Generally, these topics are sub-articles of the main Finland article, vital for the understanding of Finland or extremely notable to people outside of Finland. This category should stay limited to approximately 100 members. Biographies should be limited to the top one or two Finnish people in a particular field or persons of the greatest historical importance
High Topics that are very notable within Finland, and well-known outside of it, and can be reasonably expected to be included in any print encyclopedia. This includes cities with a population of more than 100,000.
Mid Topics that are reasonably notable on a national level within Finland without necessarily being famous or very notable internationally, including smaller towns
Low Topics of mostly local interest or those that are only included for complete coverage or as examples of a higher-level topic; peripheral or trivial topics or topics that have only a limited connection to Finland.
