Information Has Value

Not all information is created equal.  Different types of sources suit different information needs.  Like any other skill, evaluating resources becomes faster and easier with practice.


From Danville Area Community College, CRAAP test is an easy acronym for the major elements to look for:

Currency -- The timeliness of the information.

Relevance -- The importance of the information for your needs.

Authority -- The source of the information.

Accuracy -- The reliability, truthfulness, and correctness of the content.

Purpose or Point of View -- The reason the information exists.

See California State University, Chico's CRAAP Test Handout for useful questions to ask within each element.
