Session 2 Activty


There are a variety of frameworks available to assist with evaluating information, each offers guidance for critically reviewing a resource. This activity focuses on using the CRAAP test critera.

Evaluating Information

The evaluating information tab in this library guide provides a foundational framework in the form of a series of questions about the currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, and purpose of information being reviewed.

Group Activity

The class will be divided into four groups; each group will be charged with applying the CRAAP test criteria to their assigned website to determine if it is a viable information resource.  Would you use, or recommend using, the website as a a quality informational resource? Once a decision has been made, each group will present their evaluation results.
