Finding Resources on the Web
There are lots of good reasons to search the Internet using or other web browsers, but not everything you find online is good information. Sometimes information is only presented from one perspective, or is deliberately misleading. Other times, what you find may not be from a reliable source, and your tutors may not want you using it in an academic assignment. Learning to be critical about the information you find online is important, and it can take time.
So, how can you tell what's good and what isn't? Watch below to find out!
Still not sure about that website you found? Try using The CRAAP Test to see if you can use it for your assignment.
The CRAAP test
This is a great way to critically assess the usefulness of a webpage.
You can also use it to assess other resources too, as even books and journal articles can date, have bias, use international terminology and so forth.
