Evaluating Web Sites

Ask these questions to determine whether the resources you find are credible and reliable:

  1. Who created the page? Does the person or organization have the appropriate credentials?

  2. What is the purpose of the site?  For example, is it sponsored by a company that has a financial interest in the topic?

  3. When was the page last updated? How current is the information?

  4. How does the author support his/her argument?  Does the author cite trustworthy sources?
