  • Is the site Accurate?  (Are any claims supported by reliable evidence?)
  • Is the site Impartial? (Is the information biased?)
  • Is the site Current?  (Is the information up-to-date?)
  • Who are the Audience?  (Who is the site aimed at?)
  • Is the site Reliable? (Are links from the site working and pointing to other reliable sites?)
