    • Note: This is a list of major search engines and not intended to be an exhaustive list.
    Back To Quiz
  • Information Literacy Quiz
    • Google ranks results based on popularity.
    • It counts the number of links from sites all around the Web.
    • For example, if a large number of sites has a specific keyword somewhere on their Web site along with a link to a particular site, Google counts the number of times the keyword appears along with the number of links to a particular site.
    • The higher number of links to a site, the higher Google will rank that site on a list of results.
    • Question 2: How do sites get to the top of a results list in Google?
    Back To Quiz
  • Information Literacy Quiz
    • Perform a Link:command Search.
    • In the engine’s search box type: “ link:paste the web address“.
    • Why is This Useful?
    • In order to validate websites, one question we need to ask ourselves is, "Who is and is not linked to this page if it is credible?"
    • Question 3: How do you discover who is linked to a Web site? Why is this valuable?
    Back To Quiz
  • Information Literacy Quiz
    • Use “quotation marks” to ensure your keywords appear in your search results in the order you have specified.
    • You would use them if you wanted to research a given phrase.
    • For example, if you conduct a search for global warming, a search WITHOUT quotation marks would find sites that include the words “global” AND “warming” – the words do not have to appear together and you will get more hits than you probably want.
    • Question 4: Why might you use quotation marks when conducting a search?
    Back To Quiz
  • Information Literacy Quiz
    • My favourite ways:
    • Easywhois.com allows users to look up domain names. Enter the URL of the site you would like to research.
    • The Wayback Machine allows users to see archived versions of Web pages. Go to www.archive.org and type the URL (Web address) of located site.
    • Question 5: How do you find the history of any given Web site?
    Back To Quiz
  • Information Proficiency
    • Are we teaching our students to locate information and evaluate its value?
    IMSA 21 st Century Fluency Project http://21cif.imsa.edu/resources/features/leadarticle_v1_n0.html What Students Are Not Proficient At What Students Do Instead Turn a question into a query Rush ahead toward an answer, grabbing some of the criteria or the whole statement Choose the a database suited to their needs Enter words or phrases into Google Recognize information when they find it Rush past important information and clues; continue to browse Find better keywords Stick with their original words and browse Verify the credibility of information Accept what they find at face value
