Googling for information may produce lots of results, but how can we evaluate the quality of those sites?
TAKE THE CRAAP TEST!
CURRENCY: The timeliness of the information.
RELEVANCE: The importance of the information for your needs.
AUTHORITY: The source of the information.
ACCURACY: The reliability, truthfulness, and correctness of the content.
PURPOSE: The reason the information exists.
The CRAAP test was developed in 2004 by librarians at California State University at Chico and provides a quick method for examining the quality of any information source -- especially websites.
