What is source evaluation?

When you’re scrolling through social media, and news articles and reports pop up on your screen, you might assume that all of these pieces are true and credible. The same can be said about reading the news online.

A lot of news articles and research reports are trustworthy. However, there are also quite a few that can be made up or fake, otherwise known as ‘fake news’. The sources used to create these news articles are incorrect or lacking information.

This access has also created significant challenges. With Google being used as our primary research platform, and social media for sharing information, it can become difficult to sift the real news from the fake news.
