The evaluation tool introduced here is designed to be used with all types of resources. You constantly need to be asking yourself the questions in the evaluation, regardless of the format of the material. We do put more emphasis on evaluating web sources, but each source you are going to use in your work should be evaluated with a critical eye. Don't just take what is written at face value; think about it.
The following document includes examples of how you could write out a CRAAP evaluation or annotation. The two sources in this example are being considered for a paper about information literacy in high schools and how those skills potentially transfer to college.
Currency: The timeliness of the information
Relevance: The importance of the information for your needs
Authority: The source of the information
Accuracy: The reliability, truthfulness and correctness of the content
Purpose: The reason the information exists
