CP World History Research Paper: Web Evaluation

Evaluating Information

Use this form to help you determine the credibility of any website or online article. You should always be critical of anything you come across on the open web. Remember, you may find a highly accurate and trustworthy site, but that doesn't necessarily make it an appropriate or helpful resource for your research needs. Before committing to using a website as a source of information, yourself this final question:

Is this website as good as (or better than) what I could find in journal articles or other published literature? 

...If the answer is no, keep on searching!
