“Accuracy”

Obviously, information (and the way in which it’s presented) needs to be accurate; it needs to be correct. So that means everything from the spelling and grammar, to the actual content of the website, must be clear, error-free, and well-researched.

Questions to ask:

  • Is the correct spelling and grammar used?
  • Is there a reference list (or are there links to other websites) to show where the information came from? (This is a good way to double-check that the information is accurate; this also will show that the information had been researched.)
  • Are you able to verify (confirm) the information in another book/website/magazine?

Accurate information is a must!

Finally, let’s look at the “Usefulness” of the website.
