How to evaluate web sites

How to evaluate web sites

  • Author (individual or group)

  • Publisher

  • Date (is it important to your topic?)

  • Cited sources

  • Common Sense (bias, logical, facts vs. opinions, errors and dead links)


Web site evaluation

URLs

  • .com – usually a commercial site

  • .net, .org – sometimes a non-profit, but anyone can get a domain ending in either of these

  • .edu – affiliated with an educational institution like a school or library, but it can be a professor or a student, so beware

  • .gov, .mil – government/military site. Usually credible, great source of statistics and other information, though some topics may involve a bias, such as No Child Left Behind or Patriot Act

  • None of these are fool-proof
