CRAAP Test for the Web

The quality of the information you find on the Web varies tremendously so it is always a good idea to check the information against another source. As with all information resources, whether in print or on the Internet, you evaluate its quality based on the following criteria:

  • Currency (How old is the information and is it current enough to use in your research?)

  • Relevance (Does the site meet your needs in terms of depth of information and the level of understanding you're looking for - too elementary/too complex?)

  • Authority (Who is publishing this information? Is the author an expert? Is the organization trustworthy? Hint: research the author/publisher/organization)

  • Accuracy (Where does this information come from? Are there references so you can check their sources? Has the information been evaluated by someone?)

  • Purpose (Why does this site exist? Is it's goal to make money with ads? Is the site attempting to sell you a specific product? Is this a sponsored post?)
