Evaluating resources is important in research. When using sources
outside of the BCPS databases, you need to know whether the
information is accurate and trustworthy, as well as how to properly
cite it.
Find one website on your own that helps you to answer the inquiry
question on Slide 1. “How did 20th century political, social, and
economic changes in Europe contribute to the outbreak of World
War I?”
– Use this evaluation tool to determine whether the site is credible and can be
used in your research paper. If your source fails, it is not suitable for use.
– Print out a copy of your completed form.
– Be thorough in your justification (Narrative Evaluation).
– You must include note cards from your credible source in your research paper
(use the Easy Bib note card resource!)
