In light of all the misleading, biased, and plain wrong information that is out there on the Internet, we need a way to decipher which information is reliable. Thanks to a BMCHSD curriculum writing project from the summer of 2015, we have resources to help us. In comes, the CRAAP test - a clever acronym and a framework for evaluating online resources. See info-graphic below.
When we do research, websites are useful because they provide easy access to information. However, not all websites are reliable. In order to check for reliability, we must consider, currency, relevance, authority, accuracy, and purpose. Otherwise, we might be misinformed.

The video below was curated by our Principal, Mr. Harrington, and shown at a recent faculty meeting. It demonstrates the consequences when we do not use the CRAAP test!
