Week 2 Discussion 

Have you ever read something that you suspected was fake news? In this week’s reading, you will learn about strategies for determining if a source is credible. One of those strategies is the CRAAP Test.

  • Currency: Is the      information up to date?
  • Relevance: Is the      information relevant to your research needs?
  • Authority: Who is the      source of the information?
  • Accuracy: How reliable      and truthful is the information? Can the information be verified?
  • Purpose: Why does the      information exist?

How can the CRAAP Test help you when you look at news and articles in the future?

At a minimum, please respond in a paragraph of at least 5–7 sentences to fully address this question. Then, be sure to respond to at least one of your classmate’s posts with a substantial response. Also, be sure to respond in your own words!

Good afternoon Professor and classmates,

 “If you don’t read the news, you are uninformed. If you do read the news, you are misinformed” -Mark Twain. This quote is one of my favorites for many reasons. One of which is how the media twists and bends stories to fit whatever narrative they are trying to sell. The CRAAP test is vital when deciding if the article you are reading is legitimate or not. I do not trust sources unless the domain on the URL ends with .org, .edu, or in some cases, .gov. Finding the published date of an article is critical because some media sights will rerelease content from a year back to reopen a topic that may be trending due to political polls or a disaster happening in the world. The media knows viewers are vulnerable and will sell this story, not caring whom it may affect or how it could destroy someone’s reputation. Following these principles of the CRAAP test will ensure you only retain rich and valid information. If you are reading sources that don’t pertain to the three domains I previously mentioned, make sure you take that information with a grain of salt and conduct your analysis with the CRAAP test!
