FINDING TRUTH 3181178
The C.R.A.A.P. Test- a tool for evaluating information and finding the TRUTH

When
you search for information, you're going to find lots of it . . . but
is it good information? You will want to determine that for yourself,
and the CRAAP Test can help. The CRAAP Test is a list of questions to
help you evaluate the information you find. Different criteria will
be more or less important depending on your situation or what you are
looking for.

(Thought I
would post this to help everyone filter information they are offered
to keep themselves from losing their way in the ever present sea of
lies and liars
-- UNEEK)

To be persuasive, one must be believable;
To be believable, one must be credible;
To be credible, one must be truthful.

All
truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it
is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident
.Arthur Schopenhauer (1788 - 1860)

A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes
.Mark Twain (1835 - 1910), (attributed)

Truth persuades by teaching, but does not teach by persuadin
g.Quintus Septimius Tertullianus
(160 AD - 230 AD), Adversus Valentinianos
“You believe easily what you hope for earnestly” -- Terence


Currency: The timeliness of the information.
 When was the information published or posted?
 Has the information been revised or updated?
 Does your topic require current information, or will older sources work as well?
Are the links functional?


Relevance:
The importance of the information for your needs.
 Does the information relate to your topic or answer your question?
 Who is the intended audience?
 Is the information at an appropriate level (i.e. not too elementary or advanced for your needs)?
 Have you looked at a variety of sources before determining this is one you will use?
 Would you be comfortable citing this source in a research paper? (**)


Authority: The source of the information.
 Who is the author/publisher/source/sponsor?
 What are the author's credentials or organizational affiliations?
 Is the author qualified to write on the topic?
 Is there contact information, such as a publisher or email address?
Does the URL reveal anything about the author or source?
examples: .com .edu .gov .org .net



Accuracy: The reliability, truthfulness and correctness of the content.
 Where does the information come from?
 Is the information supported by evidence? (**)
 Has the information been reviewed or refereed?
 Can you verify any of the information in another source or from personal knowledge?
 Does the language or tone seem unbiased and free of emotion?
 Are there spelling, grammar or typographical errors?



Purpose: The reason the information exists.
 What is the purpose of the information? Is it to inform, teach, sell, entertain or persuade?
 Do the authors/sponsors make their intentions or purpose clear?
 Is the information fact, opinion or propaganda?
 Does the point of view appear objective and impartial?
 Are there political, ideological, cultural, religious, institutional or personal biases?

Very much what I use in evaluating an article, and a big part of why I seem so skeptical at times. I would add an "S" to it. What does the Spirit say? Do you get an inner witness from the Holy Spirit or and inner warning? Is it in line with or contrary to the Word. (Note some things may not be biblical per se, but often you will find core principles that can be judged.) I sometimes call that my smell test, if it doesn't "smell" right it's probably bad and unfit for consumption.

Hey Kevin53 -- that is a good one -- Yep I do trust my "gut" feelings more now than I use to -- or what you might call that "inner voice" and yes WWJD - or how does it go along with Scripture teachings or "your" beliefs --

Thanks for sharing Kevin53 !!
❤

Darn I wish I could get past this "learning curve" with this formatting -- ughhhhhh - It looked alright when I did the preview -- I thought -- sorry folks ❤

THANK YOU IQD4US -- for bringing that to my attention - I do not get things to always format properly - I did go in and edit and was able to correct the spacing so the R for Relevance is in proper order --
