Evaluating Resources? Use the CRAAP test.

The CRAAP test, which stands for Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, Purpose, is a list of criteria/questions that you should keep in mind as you evaluate a book, article or website. 

Use this handout (from California State University - Chico) to help you determine if a source provides good information... or not.
