Evaluate Websites

Found it on the web? Spend some time investigating! Remember to apply the five evaluation criteria:

  1. Accuracy (Is the information presented verifiable?)
  2. Authority (Who wrote/sponsored the web site?)
  3. Objectivity (What is the site's purpose--to inform, to persuade, to sell?)
  4. Currency (This is especially important for medical and health information. When was the site created? Are the links still active? Does more recent research on the topic exist?)
  5. Use (Is the site written for health professionals? Students? Patients and health consumers?)
