Use the questions on the Questions to Ask When Determining Credibility of Sources handout to help you determine the credibility of websites and videos. Check the information by comparing several sites or videos on the same topic. Take a few facts from one article and confirm or disprove them with another credible source (Stebbins, 2015, pp. 22-23).
