While investigating WikiTrust ratings for integrating them into WRS an interesting is the rating distribution for Wikipedia featured articles.
The results are very promising as the majority (73 %) a rating of 8 out of 9. This confirms Wikipedia‘s claim that featured articles have a very good quality.
However, more than 25% of all articles got a WikiTrust rating equal or below 7, motivating the need for additional ways of assessing their quality.
Here are the precise results:
Rating Articles Percentage 5 2 2.00% 6 2 2.00% 7 23 23.00% 8 73 73.00% Total 100 100.00%
and the same results as a chart:
The WikiTrust results are the expected ones, therefore the idea of using it in WRS has strong grounds.
We hope WRS will make your Wikipedia experience better, give it a try; you can install it for free from here.
