Evaluate Sources

Apply the P.R.O.V.E.N. test to help you evaluate the sources you find:

Purpose: How and why the source was created.

Relevance: The value of the source for your needs.

Objectivity: The reasonableness and completeness of the information.

Verifiability: The accuracy and truthfulness of the information.

Expertise: The authority of the creators of the source.

Newness: The age of the information.
