Evaluating Websites

When using the Web for research, it is important to evaluate what you find, because no one curates or rates it.  There are different methods of deciding if a source is credible, but an easy-to-remember evaluation acronym to use is CRAAP:

timeliness of the information

importance of the information for your needs

source of the information

reliability and correctness of the content

the reason for it or why the information exists
