  • 20. 20 Evaluating Websites The CRAAP Test: Consider the following when looking at websites:
  • 21. 21 Evaluating Websites CURRENCY: It is important to make sure that you are using the most up to date information. Ask yourself: ◦ What is the date of publication? ◦ Does the source use recent information? ◦ Are the references and/or links current? ◦ Does currency matter for this topic? Why or why not?
  • 22. 22 Evaluating Websites RELEVANCE: All of the sources you use in a project should be relevant to your topic. While you may not find the perfect source that exactly captures all of your ideas, the sources you use should be related in some way. Ask yourself: ◦ What aspect of your research question(s) does this source answer? ◦ Is the intended audience appropriate for academic research?
  • 23. 23 Evaluating Websites AUTHORITY: Authority lets us know that someone with expertise or experience in the topic is sharing their knowledge. Remember, though, that authority is contextual, the expertise or experience needs to be relevant to the topic. Ask yourself: ◦ What credentials related to the topic at hand does the author have? ◦ Does the author have any relevant affiliations with a respected university or organization?
  • 24. 24 Evaluating Websites ACCURACY Determining the accuracy of a source ensures that you are using information that is supported and free from errors. Ask yourself: ◦ Does the source contain any false information or errors? ◦ Does the source use reputable sources to support the claims made? ◦ Does this source align with other sources that discuss this topic?
  • 25. 25 Evaluating Websites PURPOSE: Sources may be written to entertain, inform, persuade, or some other purpose. Ask yourself: ◦ Is this information clearly biased in one way or another? ◦ Why did the author or creator decide to share this information?
