Transcript of Website Evaluation

Essential Question:
How do I choose credible websites?
Think about it -
anyone can put up a web page
many websites are outdated
there is no control over quality/accuracy
Consider the Domain Extension:
.edu - higher education
.com - commercial
.org - an organization, it may be charitable, religous or a lobbying group
.gov-government agency
.net - an internet service provider
.mil - a military site
Authority:
Who is the author?
What are his/her credentials?
Is there contact info?
Objectivity:
Is the content biased?
Is the bias explicit or hidden?
Does the identity of the author suggest a bias?
Are the authors up-front about their purpose?
Currency:
Is the information up-to-date?
Does the webpage show when it was last updated?
Are there dead links?
http://www.thedogisland.com
http://www.ushmm.org

Ask Yourself -
What am I viewing?
Is it news, opinion, gossip,
advertising, propoganda?

Relevance/Quality
Is the information organized and neatly presented?
Are there spelling or other errors in content?
Are their distracting graphics/ads?
Is the content accurate, complete and well written?
Is it relevant to your topic?
