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.
