For librarians and instructors, the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay's Cofrin Library has created this helpful interactive guide designed to help students evaluate potential research sources. This online tool guides students through the CAARP model, asking students questions about the source's Currency, Authority, Accuracy, Relevance, and Purpose via a series of multiple-choice questions. As students answer these questions, they will see feedback about what this information reveals about the reliability, authority, and usefulness of their research sources. When students complete the assessment, they also receive a general recommendation about the reliability of their selected source. As the site notes, this recommendation is designed to be used in conjunction with the user's own judgment.
