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. Is the information reviewed before it is posted?

Be a cyberskeptic - QDoes the site make claims that seem too good to be true?  Does the information use deliberately obscure, "scientific" sounding language? 

Look for the evidence - Rely on research, not opinion.  Does the site identify the author? 

Check for currency - Is the information current?

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