Evaluation Tools

 Evaluation tools can help guide you in thinking critically about your information sources. Are the sources you  have gathered relevant, appropriate, and authoritative? The evaluation tools can also help you articulate what  are sometimes instinctive decisions.

Rauru Whakarare is a kaupapa Māori framework based on five strands woven together with whakapapa at the centre. This framework was developed by Massey University staff and is useful for evaluating all types of information including academic and non-academic sources, online and print material. The five strands are:

  • Whakapapa (The Background)
  • Māramatanga (The Content)
  • Aronga (The Lens)
  • Orokohanga (The Origins)
  • Mana (The Authority)

Use the acronym BADURL to assess online sources:

B ... Bias
A ... Authority
D ... Date
U ... URL
R ... Relevance
L ... Links

The CRAPP Test is designed for assessing online information for academic purposes. The tutorial is quick and informative.
