Question and answer
What criteria would you propose for your Learning Team to follow in evaluating information for relevancy, reliability, and bias?
Relevance is an important aspect of information quality, this will show if the information you're using is relevant to the topic you're writing about. Also you should consider the reliability of the source and the information you're using. [ [ All these ensure that you use is reliable, relevant and it's not bias in any way. Evaluating information encourages you to think critically about the
reliability, validity, accuracy, authority, timeliness, point of view or bias of information sources. Just because a book, article, or website matches your search criteria and thus seems, at face value, to be relevant to your research, does not mean that it is necessarily a reliable source of information. It is important to remember that sources of information comprising the Library's print and electronic collections have already been evaluated for inclusion among the Llbrary's resources. However, this does not necessarily mean that these sources are relevant to your research This does not necessarily apply to sources of information on the Web for the general public. Many of us with Internet/Web accounts are potential publishers of websites; most of this content is published without editorial review. Think about it. Many resources are available to help with evaluating web pages. ]

Weegy: There are common techniques for rating a supplier's performance including evaluation forms, surveys, system metrics, and software applications. [ [ [ Marlin Steel tracks vendor performance using a customized program he created in QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions accounting software, the Manufacturing & Wholesale edition. You can craft a survey where you ask your own employees to answer questions and to rate suppliers and vendors. You can review how many corrective actions you had to issue a supplier or vendor, how many products you had to scrap or return because the supplier or vendor failed to meet specifications, or how many customer complaints you received due to a bad part or service from a vendor. You also can monitor suppliers and vendors by doing an audit periodically. The bottom line is that you need to generate measurements or reports at the onset of the purchase and throughout the course of the supplier and vendor relationship. ?We did vendor reviews where we would bring them together offsite at a hotel with our IT and procurement people,' says Wright, who in his last business life for eight years was vice president and director of procurement for a large global engineering company. At the point he retired, the company had 100 plus suppliers and vendors ranging from Microsoft to United Airlines to a small staffing agency. ?We would line them up. So, at 9 in the morning AT&T would be making a presentation to our group. When AT&T finished and left the room they would find the Verizon salespeople standing in the lobby waiting for their turn,' Wright explains. ?We created a little competition amongst vendors.' Wright says periodic vendor reviews would also entail a discussion about what the company had been buying, how much it had been buying, what did that vendor have on the shelf or working on for push out six months or a year down the road and did it represent a significant improvement over what had been previously purchased, and what were ...
