Many sites are useful, but others may present information that is inaccurate or misleading. When you visit a site for the first time, it's important to evaluate how reliable it is. The CRAAP test is a useful tool for evaluating web-based health information. CRAAP is an acronym for Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, and Purpose.
