How do People Evaluate a Website's Credibility?
Advice and Tips

1.Who are the authors? Is it a university, government agency, noted expert, student, teacher or just someone who wants to create a site.
2. Is the information and materials current?
3. Is the information bias, vague or irrelevant?
4. Have others reviewed or commented on the site?
5. Does the author support his or her information with sources, and other resources?
We use Wikipedia and YouTube on many of our pages. Some teachers don't accept Wikipedia as and informational source. They are a starting point but not a reliable primary source of information. Use them to get an understanding of the topic and check the information they give you. BY ALL MEANS DON'T COPY AND PASTE ANYTHING WITHOUT THE PROPER NOTATIONS!
