CRAP Detection

Be sure to think carefully about the resources you are using. Apply the C.R.A.P. detection model. 

    * Currency - How recent is the information?

    * Reliability - What kind of information is included in the resource? Is it balanced? Does the creator provide references or sources for data or quotations?

    * Authority - Who is the creator or author? Who is the publisher or sponsor?  What is the author's or publisher's interest (if any) in this information?

    * Purpose/Point of View - Is this fact or opinion?  Is the creator/author trying to sell you something; persuade you about something?

Some people add another "A" to spell CRAAP. the extra a is for Accuracy - Is the content readable? Is the content truthful? Is the content correct?
