Nicely organized web page containing evaluation practice and exercises. Includes core evaluation criteria for undergraduate students. Problem-based evaluation skills are clearly and concisely defined, the page is easy to use, and all links were active.

The exercises are a great assessment tool for the classroom but there was no follow-up to determining whether or not the sites were objective, authoritative, etc. There was nothing in the materials to help improve my teaching other than providing the exercises themselves.

Since this page contains links to both bogus and authentic websites and a lesson plan encouraging students to work in small groups, it is a high-quality time-saving device for those of us teaching information literacy. The links have been collected for you. All the teacher has to do is direct students to this page in class and follow the plan. At the time of this writing, all links were up-to-date, which is much appreciated.
