Information from the Internet

It is amazing how much information you can find from searching the Internet.  It is very important, though, to perform the CRAP Test to make sure that the sources you have found on the Internet are trustworthy.

When applying the CRAP Test to your Internet source, be sure to also look at whether or not the link includes .gov, .edu, .org, .com, or .net. These are called file extensions.

 

.gov (Government): Includes official information from or about the U.S government. Example: www.whitehouse.gov
.edu (Educational Institution): Purpose is to educate or to provide information about an educational institution, such as a college, university, or school. Example: www.cscc.edu
.org (Organization): Usually a non-profit organization, such as The American Cancer Society (www.cancer.org). Sometimes contains information that promotes a specific point of view.
.com (Commerical): Purpose is to sell goods or services, or to provide information about a company. Example: www.amazon.com
.net (Network): Often, this includes personal web pages or community websites. Example: www.texasbigfoot.net
