Evaluating Websites

The following guidance for web site evalution is drawn from Diana Hacker's tips:

Authorship

  • Does the site or document have an author? Can you tell whether the author is knowledgeable and credible? 

 Sponsorship

  • Who, if anyone, sponsors the site? Does the sponsor likely have a bias?

Purpose and audience

  • Why was the site created: To argue a position? To sell a product? To inform readers? Which readers?

Currency

  • How current is the information?  If the document or site is too dated to provide relevant information, find a more timely source.
