EVALUATING WEBSITES

Consider the source  Can you identify the author?  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? 

Look for the evidence  Rely on research, not opinion.  Does the site identify their sources? Does it rely on testimonials?

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

Beware of bias  What is the purpose of this site? Who provides the funding?
