WikiProject assessment is a system used by various WikiProjects to assess the quality of articles within the scope of their WikiProjects. The system allows contributors to prioritise their efforts to ensure that article which are below the standard expected on the Particracy Wiki can be improved.
|A||This article is exceptional - it probably does not need much work (if any at all), and is generally recognized as one of the best of its kind.|
|B||This article should be well written, accurate, use a neutral point of view, and wherever possible, be illustrated by appropriately tagged images. B-class articles may not be as thorough and detailed as A-class articles, but should not omit any major facets of the topic.|
|C||This article has several of the elements of a D-class article, usually a majority of the material needed for a completed article. Nonetheless, it has significant gaps, needs substantial editing, or lacks Neutral Point Of View.|
|D|| This article has a meaningful amount of good content, but it is still weak in many areas, and may lack a key element. It has at least one serious element of gathered materials, including any one of the following:
|Stub||This Article is either a very short article or a rough collection of information that will need much work to bring it to A-Class level. It is usually very short, but can be of any length if the material is irrelevant or incomprehensible.|
Basic rules of thumb:
- Thoroughness of information - If an article is thorough in its information, it can be rated any class; if it is somewhat thorough, it can be stub, D, C or sometimes B class; if it is not thorough at all, it can be stub or D class.
- Editing - If an article contains numerous grammatical or spelling errors or is not formatted correctly, it cannot be A or B class.
- Neutrality - If an article lacks Neutral Point of View, it cannot be A or B class.
- Images - Generally, articles without images are not rated A-class.
- Up-To-Date - Although not entirely necessary, being up-to-date is normally necessary for A or B class articles.
