Explain the components of evaluating an online source and why each is important.
There are several things to look at when evaluating an online source: Authorship - If the author is not listed, this is a red flag. It is important to also look at the authors credentials in evaluating a source. If, for example, the author's expertise is in history but they are writing an article on physics you may need to question the validity of the article Publisher - Evaluating the publisher's trustworthiness will also help you to deduce the validity of the article. Accuracy and Objectivity - It is important to keep an eye out for biased sources. Additionally, it is best practice to make sure you can verify the information from more than one source Timeliness - How old is the article? Is the website updated? Asking these questions will mean that you are getting the most up to date information. Footnotes and Sources - Sources are a great way to verify the information presented in an article and will lend credibility to the article you're studying. Sponsorship - Is this a personal page, or is it sponsored by an institution? A page sponsored by a university, for example, will have more credibility than a random page on the internet.
