Evaluating Sources

Evaluation of the information you have collected is one of the most important steps in your research process. You should evaluate the information with regard to the relevancy of the information to your project, the authority of the source, the scope of the information, point of view (be particularly careful of bias), and the accuracy of the information. This is especially important with Internet sources, since anyone can post information on the Internet.
