Evalutating Websites


Writing Style--citations, grammar, precise writing rather than generalizations, no personal attacks  rather than answering an argument.

Author--what are the author's credentials? (e.g. Education, Background and Employer.  What else have they published?  *Check WorldCat, Google Scholar & Article Databases like ProQuest, PsychInfo, or Scopus).

Read--read the information and decide for yourself.  Synthesis distinguishes research from reports.
Purpose--(look for "About us")  Any bias?   Is it for commerce, to advocate or inform?

Date--Publication or Last Revision Date
