Evaluating Resources, how-to guide

 

 

 

 

 

 

Before using any resource in your academic work, you should evaluate it. 

Why, you ask?

Because there are many different sources of information out there, but not all of them are of good quality or a good fit for your assignment.

  • Good quality resources help you to build your arguments and create good quality essays.
  • Using high quality resources can boost your grades.
  • Evaluating resources is a transferable skill that is highly valued by employers. 

In this how-to guide, you will learn about the different sources you can use in your assignments and the tools you need to critically evaluate them.
