Evaluation

Evaluating the information you find is a very important part of your assignments. You should evaluate all the information you find whether you have found it using an Internet search, in a book or a journal article, or given to you by your tutor. You have to decide if the information meets your needs and is of sound quality. This section will help you learn about assessing your information for:

  • Relevance
  • Reliability and validity
  • Bias or viewpoint
  • Coverage and scope
  • Currency
  • Accuracy
