Tools, tests, and checklists: The evolution and future of

source evaluation frameworks

David Sye, Murray State University
Dana Statton Thorm pson, Murray State University

In this article, we connect the scholarly conversations around established and emerging source
evaluation frameworks such as the ABCs of website evaluation, CRAAP Test, DIG Method,
RADAR  approach, SIFT Method, the Proactive Evaluation approach proposed by the Project
Information Literacy Team. We then explain each evaluation framework, delineating which
framework is appropriate for a particular format, such as scholarly sources, online sources,
image-based sources, and/or networked information sources. Lastly, we showcase the ways we
have incorporated these source evaluation frameworks into our own classroom instruction and
provide readers with ideas on how to do the same within their own institutional contexts.
