SCARAB

There is a lot of information out there on the web, some which will be useful to you when working on assignments. . . but is it accurate and reliable? Is it appropriate for your topic? You will have to determine that for yourself, and the SCARAB Test can help. The SCARAB Test is a list of questions you can ask in order to determine if the information you have is reliable and useful for your purposes.  This list is only a beginning, different criteria will be more or less important depending on your situation or need. So, what are you waiting for? Is your web site credible and useful, or should you throw it back to the web?
