Criteria

The following pages will introduce you to a series of criteria that you can use to evaluate the quality of networked information. Ultimately the quality of Internet information can be defined as information that is 'fit for purpose'. As an evaluator you will need to decide which criteria are appropriate under which circumstances (see the previous section on Practical Steps).

The criteria have been split into 3 main sections under which a resource may be evaluated:

Content Criteria Form Criteria Process Criteria
Validity Navigation Information Integrity
Accuracy User Support Site Integrity
Authority Appropriate Technologies System Integrity
Uniqueness
Substantiveness
Completeness
Coverage
