To practice evaluating websites you find, let's apply what we've learned so far to two examples!
This site is a fairly obvious joke - octopi are sea animals and do not live in trees (in the Pacific Northwest or elsewhere). However, if the subject were the (not real) endangered Pacific Northwest Pine Owl, would you be able to tell the site was a fake?
Conclusion - this is NOT a valid website to use in scholarly research!
Apply the CRAAP test and the SIFT method to the following websites. Which would you use in an academic research paper?
This website looks very professional and polished, and much like other professional health organizations. There don't appear to be any obvious typos and it is updated regularly. However, what can we discover about it when we leave the website and do an internet search?
Conclusion - this source is biased toward one point of view.
