How Reliable is a Website?

Use the CRAAP test!

 

Currency – is the information too old?

Relevance/coverage – does it tell you what    you need to know?

Authority – who is the source of the information?

Accuracy – is the information true and reliable?

Purpose/objectivity – why does this site exist? Could it be biased?
