CARS Web Site Reliability

C-Credibility: How reliable is the person creating the information? Can you trace to a reputable organization such as a university, a national organization, etc.? If it is written by an author, is there a first and last name, email contact, overview of credentials, etc.? In other words, is the source trustworthy?

A-Accuracy: Is the information current? Does it give specific details to support claims such as statistics and when they were taken? Does it avoid vague language such as always, never, sometimes, etc.? Does it provide well-rounded coverage of the topic?

R-Reasonable/Reliable: Is the information balanced? Is the language professional? Is it written objectively or does it appear slanted? Is it selling/promoting something that would be a clear conflict of interest? Does it overclaim without specific support (ex: Thousands of children live on the streets today)?

S-Support: Are sources listed, contact information, something to show where the information is coming from, a bibliography,etc.?
