Website Evaluation

Online Website Evaluation Tool - use this form to evaluate your web source and/or create an annotated biography 

Evaluating Web Sites Form - this web evaluation tool was created by the University of MD to help students evaluate websites that they use for scholarly work. 

Remember to check:

Author - is this a credible person?  Can you find information about this person?

Date-  when the site was created? Is this information outdated? 

Web domain - sites ending in ".edu" ".gov" are more credible; addresses that end in ".com"  ".org" or ".net" need to be evaluated more carefully

Are there a lot of spelling and grammar mistakes?

Content: Does this site provide references?  Does this website answer my question? Can I find this information in other places?  Is this fact or opinion?
