Transcript of The ABC's of Web Page Evaluation

The ABC's of Web Page Evaluation A-Author Things to ask yourself: Is the author of the web site named? Is the author qualified to write about the subject? Is the information provided accurate?
Can I verify the information other places? B-Bias Things to ask yourself: Does the web page present the information in a fair, objective manner? Is the web page free of unnecessary advertising? C-Coverage Things to ask yourself: Is the information on the site believable? Is it useful? Is it valuable to know? D-Dates Things to ask yourself: Does the web page show the date it was created? Is the web page updated regularly? E-Editor Things to ask yourself: Does the web site have a fact checker or editor? Is the web site sponsored by university or government agency? Does the web site have a bibliography? The internet can be a great research tool because it can bring us lots and lots of information very quickly. But did you know ANYONE
(me, you, our friends)
can publish information online? This means it is very important to carefully check the web sites you find before using them in your reports and projects. Remember to use your evaluation sheets for each and every web site you view and you'll never end up with a round longhouse like Mrs. Waldron... .gov means this site is made by a goverment office. Pssst....
.edu means a site is
by a school.
Both .gov and .edu
can be clues that a
website will have good
information for your
project This section lists
all the people who
helped work on this
They are some of it's
AUTHORS and EDITORS. Pssst....
Some of them are teachers
and museum workers
and even members of
the Seneca Nation.
Do you think their
information can be
trusted to be accurate? Contact Information is another good thing to look for on a web site. It means the people who made the site are willing to answer any questions other people may have about the information they have provided. ? The date created and
last updated are usually
at the bottom of a page.
There isnt one on this page
so you may have to look
around at other pages to find it. Remember: You cant tell if
a page is biased by looking at it.
You will have to read the information
and decide for yourself if it seems fair
and objective. If you're having trouble, ask
a librarian or teacher. * * * * *
