Use the questions Dr. Chenoweth provided in your Paper Prompt to help guide your analysis. Read through your articles and look for differences in their titles, structure, length, authors, language, and appearance to help you identify the differences between your popular source and your peer-reviewed journal articles. The C.R.A.A.P. criteria below are also useful for evaluating and selecting sources for your university assignments:
Currency: The timeliness of the information
Relevance: The information meets your assignment needs
Authority: The source of the information
Accuracy: The reliability and correctness of the information
Purpose: The reason the information exists
Professor Chenoweth has instructed you to use Peer-Reviewed sources. So what is peer-review? Watch this video and find out.
