CRAAP Test (handout)

Evaluating Sources (activity)

Assignment or in-class activity ideas for encouraging your students to evaluate sources:

  1. Have students apply the CRAAP test to one of their sources from their bibliography (or a peer's).
  2. Assign students to evaluate a source that has both strengths and weaknesses (example: policy paper with clear bias from a left- or right-leaning think tank). 
  3. Assign students to create an annotated bibliography as an early stage to a paper.
