Evaluating Websites

Evaluating a website to check if the information is credible is very important when researching a topic. Putting information in a report that comes from a source that isn't credible, is embarrassing because it makes you look like foolish and that you don't know what you're talking about. That makes people much less likely to listen to your ideas or read your reports in the future.
