The librarians at California State University-Chico developed the CRAAP Test to help students evaluate information found online. CRAAP stands for currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, purpose.
Currency: the timeliness of the information
Relevance: the importance of the information for your needs
Authority: the source of the information
Accuracy: the reliability, truthfulness and correctness of the content
Purpose: the reason the information exists
You can explore the internet using methods to ensure reliable websites come up for you. You'll still need to evaluate the sites using the rubric on this page to be certain the information is solid.
