Do you believe things just because you hear them? When someone posts something on Facebook do you automatically believe it? Use the same skeptism in your research.Why?

Relevancy: Does it pertain to your topic? Does it contain what you would expect? Do the links take you to places that are useful? Are the links broken? What does this page offer that isn’t available anywhere else? How in-Depth is the information?
  • Accuracy – How can you tell if something is accurate if you don’t know much about the topic? Look for grammatical or spelling errors. Is there an editor? Can the information be veriftied? Does it make sense? How does it look? Authority: Who is the author and what are the author’s credentials? AKA – what is the proof that this person is not a whack job. Who is the publsher? What is the author’s affiliation?
