Evaluating Web Resources

How can you tell which sites are trustworthy, and which are dubious? Use these criteria:

Evaluate the Source

  • Who is the author?
  • Is the author an authority or expert?
  • Who is responsible for the site?
  • Is the site an academic, commercial, governmental, or personal site?

Evaluate the Content

  • Who is the intended audience?
  • Is there a stated purpose for the page?
  • What type of language is used?
  • How objective is the information?
  • How accurate is the data?
  • Is the content up-to-date?
  • Does the site refer to other sites or data?
