List of ways to evaluate a web page By Andrew

-Can you easily see who the author is?

-Can you contact the author?

-What are the authors credentials?

-Can you verify the author’s crudentials?

-Can you easily find the date the document was written?

-Is the sponsor on the website reliable?

  • Look for the author’s name near the top or the bottom of the page. If you can’t find a name, look for a copyright credit (©) or link to an organization.
  • Look for biographical information or the author’s affiliations (university department, organization, corporate title, etc.).
  • Anyone who has visited a chat room knows that people don’t always identify themselves accurately.
  • Look for an email link, address, or phone number for the author. A responsible author should give you the means to contact him/her.
