Validity Assessment: Student Tool for Evaluating Online Content

A few weeks ago, I collaborated with social studies department members and our new library media specialist to develop a tool for students to evaluate online content on a regular basis.  Students will complete this Validity Assessment Form throughout the year whenever they rely on an online source for an assignment.  (I also incorporate this with our Current Event Day assignments)

The 5 main criteria include: Accuracy, Authority, Coverage, Timeliness and Design.  

As always, feel free to modify and use as you wish, feedback greatly appreciated!
