RADCAB
Your vehicle for website evaluation.
What is it?
RADCAB is a tool that students can use to evaluate (judge) websites and information.
What does RADCAB mean?
Relevancy
Appropriateness
Detail
Currency
Authority
Bias
R is for Relevancy
Is this website about my topic?

Am I on the right track?
Relevant means "connected to what is being dealt with or discussed. "
I should ask myself...
A is for Appropriateness
I should ask myself...
Is this information meant for kids my age?
Can I read the website and understand it?
D is for Detail
Books have helpful ways to organize information, like the table of contents, chapters, and index.

Websites should have helpful details to organize information, also.
I should ask myself..
Is the website neat or messy?
Is this website organized?
Does it have tools to organize the information like...
page titles and headings?
links to other websites?
helpful photos or videos?
a way to search for information?
C is for Currency
Some topics, like science and technology, are constantly changing. Some topics, like ancient history, remain pretty much the same over time.
I should ask myself...
Is it very important that my website was made/updated this year, or could it be older and still have good information?

Does this website have a date when it was last updated?

Does this date fit with my topic?
A is for Authority
Almost anyone can create a website, which is one of the
great things about the Internet, but we have to be very
careful that we know who wrote the information on a
site that we use for research.
I should ask myself...
Who is the author of this information?
Can I find the author's name or the name of a business/group who owns the website?
Why is this person/group qualified to write an article on this topic?
B is for Bias
Not all websites are created for the same reason.
We must determine why the site was created.
I should ask myself...
Why was this information written?
Was it written to inform me, persuade me, or sell me something?
Why do I need to evaluate a website?
We use search engines, like Google, to search the Internet for a topic. Google's job is to give you lots of choices, but some will be good choices for you and some will not.

How can I tell the difference?

How can I tell if the information is reliable?
If the answer to these questions is YES,
you have a great website for research!
A for Appropriateness:
Is this website meant for kids my age?

Can I read it and understand most of the information?
R for Relevency:
Is this website about my topic?
D is for Details:
Is my website organized? Can I find information easily?
C is for Currency:
Is my website up-to-date?

A is for Authority:
Who is the author of this website? What do they know about this topic?
B is for Bias:
What is the author's purpose? Is it to inform the reader?
