Evaluating Sources

undefinedOnce you locate a resource that appears to be relevant to your research, you must evaluate it to make sure it is appropriate for your assignment. In some cases, articles from trade journals or websites can be used, but many times your professor will require your research comes from scholarly journals.  Always be sure to check your assignment for the guidelines laid out by your instructor.

The evaluation of any source should include critical criteria that will be outlined in this module.
