EVALUATING WEBSITES

Consider the source--Use recognized authorities.  Know who is responsible for the content.

Focus on quality--All Web sites are not created equal.  Does the site have an editorial board? Is the information reviewed before it is posted?

Be a cyberskeptic--Does the site make claims that seem too good to be true?

Look for the evidence--Rely on research, not opinion.

Check for currency--Look for a date.  Is the information current?

Beware of bias--What is the purpose? Who is providing the funding? Who pays for the site?
