It's easy to find information on the internet. But not all information on the internet is true. Information published in books, magazines and newspapers goes through editors and publishers before being printed, but ANYBODY can put information on the internet. If you are using websites other than those given to you by your teacher or librarian, make sure you have evaluated it using the tools on this page.
Use this worksheet when you are deciding to use a website for research that was not given to you by your teacher or librarian. By using the point scale on the bottom of the form you can decide if the website is an acceptable resource.
