Content: Is it reputable, accurate, current, interesting? What are the political views, if any, of the sponsoring
organization? Is it an advocacy organization?
To what extent does the website distinguish between facts and opinions? Are there citations about studies and
research, or are there personal testimonials from “satisfied customers”?
To what extent is the website age/experience-appropriate for its intended or stated audience? Is it for young
adults, medical professionals, parents, or someone else?
To what extent does the website include adequate information to insure visitors’ understanding of the topic?
Design: Is the website clear, easy to use/navigate?
