Web page evaluation

  1. 1. WEB PAGE EVALUATION<br />EDTL 6360<br />Leanne Hartzell<br />
  2. 2. Being a Diet Coke addict, I did a google search on health risks of Diet Sodas.<br />I used two pages for this assignment<br />4 Health Side Effects of Diet Sodas<br />Diet Soda: Is it Bad for You?<br />INTRODUCTION<br />
  3. 3. Kidney Damage<br />Weight Gain<br />Bone Loss<br />Tooth Enamel Decay<br />4 Health Side Effect of Diet Sodas<br />http://www.fitday.com/fitness-articles/nutrition/healthy-eating/4-health-side-effects-of-diet-soda.html<br />
  4. 4. DIET SODA: IS IT BAD FOR YOU?<br />http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/diet-soda/AN01732<br />No credible research to prove causes cancer<br />Be responsible 1-2 cans a day<br />Some studies show caused health problems<br />Select healthier options, milk or juice<br />
  5. 5. Authority<br />Is there an author listed?<br />What are their credentials?<br />What is the site’s parent company?<br />IS THE PAGE CREDIBLE?<br />
  6. 6. Accuracy<br />Page detailed & comprehensive?<br />List sources for presented data?<br />Links to reputable outside sources?<br />IS THE PAGE CREDIBLE?<br />
  7. 7. Currency<br />Date page written?<br />Date page placed on web?<br />Date last revised?<br />IS THE PAGE CREDIBLE?<br />
  8. 8. Objectivity<br />Minimal bias?<br />Without conflict of interest?<br />Is fair, balanced, & reasonable?<br />IS THE PAGE CREDIBLE?<br />
  9. 9. WHICH SITE TO TRUST?<br />Based on the evidence, the Diet Soda: Is it Bad for You? is the most credible source. Reasons for this being this site had an nutritionist as the author, and had a date. However due to the limited type of data presented, primarily professional opinion without documentation, I would not use it as research source.<br />
