Evaluating Websites: What Students Need to Know

Anyone can publish to the internet which means a wide range of sources and reliability exist for student viewing. Students can become website savvy by asking a few questions of the websites they visit. These include:

Author: Who wrote the site and what is their background to provide good information?

Timeliness: When was the site published and updated? Is it regularly being maintained?

Purpose: What was the reason the site was created? Does it contain bias?

Accuracy: How correct is the information given? Are resources for information provided?
