You know that not everything online is true. That's why it's important to be selective about what you choose to read. Especially if you're reading as part of your research! Use the following test to guide you when looking for information for your assignment: 

R - relevance: does it relate to your topic? help explain your topic? who was it written for?

A - authority: who is the author or organization? what are their credentials or credibility?

D - date: is there a date? how old is the information? do the links work? 

A - accuracy: is evidence provided? is it cited correctly?

R - reason: why was this put online? is it scholarly, reflect an opinion, based on a hobby, or is something for sale?

Information found online is not always true.
