We are trying to get better standards for internet research from our little birds… To that end, we are introducing the CRAAP Test for evaluating resource reliability. You will be given three sites that appear reliable but only one is actually a “good” source. However, we want you to avoid the chaff and turn to the databases as an alternative to the madness Google tends to feed you.
