{{Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Gaga articles by quality statistics}}

Welcome to the assessment department of the Gaga WikiProject! This department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Lady Gaga 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 Gaga}} project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in the appropriate sub-categories of Category:Gaga articles by quality and Category:Gaga articles by importance, which serves as the foundation for an automatically generated worklist.

Frequently asked questions Edit

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 Gaga WikiProject is free to add or change the rating of an article.
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.
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.

Instructions Edit

Quality assessments Edit

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

{{WikiProject Gaga| ... | class=??? | ...}}

The following values may be used for the class parameter to describe the quality of the article:



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

Articles for which a valid class is not provided are listed in Category:Unassessed Gaga articles. The class should be assigned according to the quality scale below.

After assessing an article's quality, comments on the assessment can be added either to the article's talk page or to the /Comments subpage which will appear as a link next to the assessment. Adding comments will add the article to Category:Gaga articles with comments. Comments that are added to the /Comments subpages will be transcluded onto the automatically generated work list pages in the Comments column.

Quality scale Edit

Importance assessment Edit

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

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

Importance scale Edit

Label Criteria Reader's experience Editor's experience Example
Top The article is one of the core topics about Gaga. Generally, this is limited to those articles that are included as sections of the main Gaga article. A reader who is not involved in the Gaga field will have high familiarity with the subject matter and should be able to relate to the topic easily. Articles in this importance range are written in mostly generic terms, leaving technical terms and descriptions for more specialized pages. Gaga
Template:High-importance The article covers a topic that is vital to understanding Gaga.
Template:Mid-importance The article covers a topic that has a strong but not vital role in the history of Gaga. Many readers will be familiar with the topic being discussed, but a larger majority of readers may have only cursory knowledge of the overall subject. Articles at this level will cover subjects that are well known but not necessarily vital to understand Gaga. Due to the topics covered at this level, Mid-importance articles will generally have more technical terms used in the article text. Most people involved in the history of Gaga will be rated in this level.
Template:Low-importance The article is not required knowledge for a broad understanding of Gaga Few readers outside the Gaga field or that are no tGaga students may be familiar with the subject matter. It is likely that the reader does not know anything at all about the subject before reading the article. Articles at this range of importance will often delve into the minutiae of the Gaga, using technical terms (and defining them) as needed. Topics included at this level include most infrastructure of Gaga.
