Criteria for Evaluation: Accuracy

  • How accurate is the information?  Is it fact or opinion?  Are the facts documented?
  • Are the sources used for factual information made easily accessible so that the information can be verified?   (Is there a bibliography or list of references/resources provided?)
  • Is the web site free of grammatical, spelling, and typographical errors? (These errors indicate poor proof-reading skills and sloppy work.)

The accuracy of the information found on a web site must be verifiable and without errors. This means the information and the language in which it is delivered must be both factually as well as grammatically and typographically correct.  
If you cannot trust the author or publisher of the site, then you should probably place little, if any, trust in the information being presented.
