Evaluating Web Resources is a resource site that explains, in great detail, how to evaluate a website for high quality information. This site provides a checklist to help students determine whether or not their Internet research has produced useful, reliable results. What I particularly like about this site is that it differentiates among the different types of webpages (.com, .edu., .org) and provides a step-by-step outline for each type of website, taking into consideration the different goals of each. Each type of website is evaluated for the same five categories (authority, accuracy, objectivity, currency, and coverage), but the evaluation differs, somewhat, depending on the type page it is. Students are guided through a series of questions that help them determine whether or not a website is a valid source to use. There are also useful links to other web evaluation sites, a powerpoint presentation, many examples of sample webpages, and a bibliography of web evaluation articles and books.
This resource is quite useful and has a lot of interesting material in it.
The assesment and evaluation of web pages and internet resources is very important and not very useful to develop. this site can serve us as a point of departure, giving us many ideas about how to do it.
