Question and answer
When you evaluate a source, you should
There are three steps you can follow to evaluate the sources (articles, websites, books) that you have found. You will want to evaluate the credibility of the author, validity of the research, and relevance of articles and web sites. [ To determine authority, you'll want to evaluate the trustworthiness (credentials, education, experience, etc.) of an author. To ensure that the research is valid, you want to determine the quality of the research used to support the argument being made. It is also important to remember that excellent or persuasive writing doesn't necessarily ensure that the
research presented is valid. To determine relevance, ask these questions: Is the article sufficiently broad to address the issue you are discussing? If the article is broad, can its conclusions be applied to your subject? (e.g. an article about drinking habits of students at large universities applies to your subject of drinking habits of CU students) If the article is narrow, can its conclusions be generalized to your subject? (e.g. an article about volleyball players and eating disorders at Honalee State University can be applied to your subject of eating disorders in women college athletes) ]
