The P.A.R.C. Method - Evaluating Websites


Information found on the internet is not filtered for quality.  It is up to you to evaluate websites. Try asking yourself these questions:

  • What is the function of this resource?
  • Who is the intended audience?
  • Is it profit-oriented?
  • Who are the authors or creators?
  • What are their credentials?
  • Is it self-published?
  • Does it provide useful, relevant information for your topic?
  • Is this fact or opinion?
  • Is it biased?
  • What might be left out? What is the author NOT telling you?
  • How timely is the resource?
  • Is the age likely to affect the information provided?
  • Can you find anything more current?
