EVALUATING WEBSITES

Consider the Source - 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 the author? Does it rely on testimonials?

Check for currency - Look for the latest information  Is the information current?

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