ENGL 102: Evaluating Web Sources

What is the CRAAP Test?

How do you decide if your web source is a good source? You need to be able to determine that for yourself by evaluating the source, and the CRAAP Test can help you with that. The CRAAP Test is a list of questions to help you evaluate the information you find with online sources, but also any source you come across. Each of these steps and their accompanying questions will be more or less important depending on your situation or information need.
