Evaluating Resources

Accuracy

To determine the accuracy of a source, consider these questions:

  • Where does the information come from? 
  • Is the information supported by evidence?
  • Has the information been reviewed or refereed?
  • Can you verify any of the information in another source? 
  • Does the language seem unbiased or free of emotion? 
  • Are there spelling or grammatical errors?
