A process of assessment: ​

re-searching through what you’ve found to determine ​

what’s superfluous, ​

what’s missing ​

& what requires more thought​!



The CRAAP test is a handy short-hand for evaluating sources. When considering whether a source is appropriate to use, check the following:

  • Currency - the timeliness of the information
  • Relevance - the importance of the information for your needs
  • Authority - the source of the information
  • Accuracy - the reliability of the information
  • Purpose - the reason the information exists



Do your future self a favor! Keep track of your research:

  • Start a document, and whenever you find a source, put it there - whether it's a link to a website, title of a book, etc.
  • Taking notes? Put them in the same document, noting what you were reading/watching when you took them
  • When you sit down to write your paper, viola!, you'll already have a lot of material to work with



Purdue Owl provides style guides for citation, as well as material on quoting and paraphrasing your research sources, and how to avoid plagiarism:
