For each of the citations, read through their webpages and honestly assess their respective qualitative value as academic resources based on whether it contains:

– broad generalizations, pinpointed information, or somewhere in-between;

– up-to-date information;

– information that is helpful for expanding readers’ knowledge of the subject;

– consistently accurate facts;

– clearly identified distinctions between purported facts and assumptions;

– language at the right level for those who are most likely going to use its information;

– grammatical or spelling errors;

– obvious biases;

– comprehensive review of other resources on the same subject;

– accurate citations;

– author contact information;

– author credentials that validate expertise;

– reputable publisher;

– reliable organizational sponsorship;

– peer review (especially blind peer review);

Based on your assessment, assign each one of the three resources that you selected a letter grade (e.g., A, B, C, D, or F) and explain why you rated it as such.
