Thanks to Patty Eyer today I learned about a great mnemonic acronym to help students remember a process for website evaluation. RADCAB, which you can learn about at RADCAB.com, stands for relevancy, appropriateness, detail, currency, authority, and bias. The RADCAB website provides a short explanation of each of the aspects of evaluation and why they are significant.
Applications for Education
Teaching students about RADCAB could be a great way to help them remember what to look for when they are evaluating websites. The RADCAB website provides an information assessment rubric that you can download for free.
