Hekman 101 - Evaluating in the Academic Context

Let's evaluate

When looking at resources and evidence, consider context, why you need the resource, and your purpose. 

Evaluate resources:

  • Is it a reliable source? Why?
  • Who is the expert? How do you know?
  • Where is it on the scale of bias?
  • How might you use it?
