College Writing: Website Evaluation Form

This guide was created to help you learn the steps to successful academic research.

Website Evaluation

Why evaluate web sites? When a website is published, there is no final authority on the internet to evaluate the site. Some sites are created by experts; for example, university sites are authored by faculty and librarians who have expertise in their fields. However, the vast majority of World Wide Web sites are designed and authored by non-experts.

Directions:
1. Carefully read through and answer each question directly on this form. 
2. After filling out the page, print before you close this window.
3. If your teacher asks, attach a printout of the first page of the web site you are evaluating to this checklist and hand it in.
