CRAAP Test - Evaluating Websites

The quality of the information you find on the Web varies tremendously so it is always a good idea to check the information against another source. As with all information resources, whether in print or on the Internet, you evaluate its quality based on the following criteria:

  • Currency (Is the information up to date?)
  • Relevance (Does the information meet your needs?)
  • Authority (What are the qualifications of the author?)
  • Accuracy (Is it free from mistakes and errors?)
  • Purpose (Who is the audience? Why does this content exist?)

That's just the basics.  Learn more!
