How to Evaluate Information

ACCURACY

What do I look for?

IS THE INFORMATION ACCURATE?

 

Are the Facts correct?

Are the opinions based on sound facts and research?

How can I tell if information is ACCURATE?            what do I know about the topic?

what do other sources say about the same thing?

What do Teachers, Parents, Librarians Say?

What does a Dictionary, an Encyclopedia or other reference source  say?

How old is the information?

How new is the Information?

What sources do the authors use to support their statements?
