Evaluating websites: What is in the website?

Tips and strategies to use when looking at how useful individual websites are for research purposes at UWCSEA.

What is in the website?

Look at what is included in the website. Here, you want to see if the information given is correct.

Here are some tips to help you evaluate:

  • Can you easily understand the information?
  • Is it clearly presented on the webpage?
  • Is there too much information or is it quite basic or brief (in other words, information you knew anyway)?
  • Does the webpage give much detail?
  • Are there any spelling errors or sentences that just do not make sense to you?
