How to Evaluate a Document for Quality: OFCARL

  2. Are facts verifiable? Give one example of a fact in the article of a verified fact.
  3. Is material out dated? If so, provide an example.
  4. Is the author credible? How do you know?
  5. Are sources cited? If so, what are they?
  6. Is the reasoning logical? Is it free of fallacy?





This is a blog post you MUST complete for Monday (or at least read and understand both articles).

Blog Post #5: Read the two articles given in class. Write a post of at least 250 words that answers the questions (OFCARL) listed above for both of the articles. Remember that the ultimate questions we are looking to answer is: are these articles credible? Would you use them in a paper you were writing for Stockton?
