When you search for information, you are going to find a lot of information. You might call it, information overload. Is it good information? You will have to evaluate what you find by using the CRAAP test criteria. The CRAAP test is a list of questions to assist you in evaluating the information that you find.
Currency: the timeliness of the information.
Relevance: The importance of the information for your needs.
Authority: The source of the information.
Accuracy: The reliability, truthfulness and correctness of the content.
Purpose: The reason the information exists.
You can get "information overload"
Try thinking of the 5 W's for evaluation:
Who--who wrote it? Who are they and what are their credentials? Are they a reputable author in the subject? How do you know?
What--is the information consistent? Is the information factual? Does it fit with other information you have found in other sources?
Where--where did you find the information? Where was it published? Is that a reputable source?
When--when was it published? Current information? Historical information? Has the topic changed since the source was published?
Why--why was it published? To inform, to persuade, to convince? Think about bias of the author and of the publishing source.
