Web Evaluation: scope
What to look for:
- Is the subject covered in depth? Does it go beyond the basics of the topic?
- Is the information well supported by documentation (i.e. citations)?
- What sources did the author consult? Are additional sources recommended for further reading?
- Does the author cite major research and authors in the field?
- Is only one side of an argument presented?
Thorough information sources will cite other important, relevant research.
