Q. What questions should you ask when searching for accuracy or reliability on a website?
To evaluate websites for accuracy and reliability, consider the questions below:
Is the author identified?
What are the author's qualifications and education?
Is the page overwhelmed by advertisements?
Is the information free of unreasonable bias?
Is the information presented without motives or an agenda?
Can you find a date when it was written or updated?
Does the author include a reference list or bibliography?
Is the article long enough?
Is the article mostly text, or are there a lot of images?
