Evaluating Websites

When doing research on the web it is really important to evaluate the source.  There are many different methods of deciding if a source is credible, an easy evaluation phrase to remember is The CRAAP Test:

timeliness of the information

importance of the information for your needs

source of the information

reliability, truthfulness, and correctness of the content

reason the information exists

NOTE: It's not always this simple.  Ask about Lateral Reading.
