One way to check the accuracy of a website is to check the information somewhere else (another website) to make sure that the information is the same.
You really can't tell if a web is accurate or not, but you could visit several other sites and see if they have similar info. Usually, you wouldn't use websites that could be could be edited by anyone. (eg. wikipedia) If you want to find a reliable web, then you should go to the HKA opac. All webs there have been approved by the school.
You would know if the information is accurate if the URL ends in .gov. When it ends in .com, it can also be accurate, but maybe you have to think if the information is accurate. For example if a website says that 'global warming is coming to an end'. Now I know that thats not true, so its not accurate. On some websites there is a tab that says "edit". So anybody can click that, and edit the website. Like Wikipedia. The place that you can get the most accurate information is always books, because nobody can edit a book.
You can check the authenticity of a website by finding information on the same thing from more than on website. If you find the same information on all the websites, then you can know that the information is correct. If you find information that is different and doesn't seem correct, then you know that that information is incorrect. Also, you should try to use credible websites and websites that are well, known, because most of the time those websites are correct.
There are many ways to find if information found on the internet is accurate. First, I can compare with other websites and see if there have the same information. Second, if there are sources that this website has use, I can go to those websites. Third, I can ask adults or friends if the information is accurate.
A way I would verify if a website is reliable is if I could check in other websites and see if the the information is same. For example, I cannot trust Wikipedia because anyone can edit it. Websites I know that are reliable are URLs that end with .edu because I know it comes from a school.
I'm no wiz computer genius but for example if you went on wikepedia it would be more likely not true because any one can change it. If you went to Hong Kong Academy site it would be accurate because it has EDU at the end of the website because you know it's educational.
To check a website that is accelerate that you should check people's comment see rather it is very good or not.
Interesting question. Here's how I would do it. First I would check if it was an edu or .org site then I would search other several other sites in order to see if the info is legitimate if the info is consistent through out. Then it might be True. But you really don't know if it is true or not. So you should just stick HKA approved sites if you are looking for info
One way to check it is to see other websites and probably to leave a comment to make sure it is correct.Also another way to see if the information is accurate you could see governmental websites.
You can usually tell if it is reviewed by a educator or if it is on a search engine like HKA OPAC or GALE. You can also tell if it is posted by the website because then people can't put random information or spam. You can also tell if it ends in edu because it means it is educational.
I know because you can see proof that it is real like the author is a professior or not. There is another way and sometimes I use Opac because teachers have already look through it and it's safe. And sometimes some sites are accurate by looking endings like edu because edu stands for education.
I would know that the information is accurate by seeing if it belongs to a government agency because most likely the info given by the government are correct. Also see if the information says something like "Because I so" or "I got this info some somewhere" if it does this info is most like incorrect. And the last thing you can check is that if the tone of the website is NOT professional or Informational "So like Ummm Ya Soo Umm ya thats what Factors mean."
I know when the information is incorrect because I could look at other people's websites or famous website like CNN student news and the information is true with details.
The website where not everyone can add any thing in the website unless you are the person who is the website controller is not accurate . Bad eg Wikipedia. Good eg Mr donn.
You know that the information is correct if you read the site and understand the information and it is interesting. Some sites can also be good if teachers recommend them to you. There are some sites like wikipedia. This is an example of a website that may not be accurate because anyone can change it.
One way to check accuracy is to double check so you can check on two or three websites.
The internet is a wide wide place. Tons of people comment everyday and say what they think. Theres bound to be evidence proving if something is accurate. However, there is also tons of information that also may be a fraud.
You would normally know if information is true if there are no grammar errors, and everything is well thought out. To double check if the information is true or not, you could look up the same topic but on a different website to see if it is true.An example of a bad website is Wikipedia, because anyone can post comments or definitions on there, which means they are not necessarily all true.
In order to know if the website is accurate, check other websites and see if the information is either similar or the same. Or you could ask a teacher if the information is accurate, or look in a book.
You can never know whether the information is right or wrong for sure, but a simple way of finding out is checking if other sites say the same thing.
Well, you can't tell if information on Internet is accurate. Sometimes, it can be edited. For example, Wikipedia. People edit stuff on that website every time. The whole point is some websites can be accurate. If you want to look up any website, use an example like HKA OPAC.
When I check accurate information, I would check any sources influenced from it, especially if one of it's topics relates to a big company or the government. Also, I would check to make sure that it's a valid website and that it has a URL or web name that makes sense (e.g something like www.bigbusinessthetruth.com would sound strange to me, especially if the website is by a single person). Finally, I would look to see if it had a bibliography or source list to see if it's source's are also telling the truth.
One way to check that websites are accurate is to check on two or three websites to make sure everything is write. many times if you are reading about the news on the internet you should go to other sites because some have more recent statistics then others.
You will know if a site has accurate information if it has many citations. This is because you can check those citations to see if they are all the same and if they might be expert cites. If you really aren´t feeling good about the site check some others to see if it has the same information as they do.
I know that information on a website is accurate when I can go on to another website and get that same details/main ideas. I also don't trust certain sites because people can change the information put on the site. Some examples of these websites are Wikipedia or Yahoo Answers.
How you check if the information is correct in a website is by checking information on other websites and compare them. The right answer would be the answer that show up the most.
If you visit HKA OPAC all the sites listed there are approved and checked for correct info. As well as visiting several other sites checking that the information is generally the same and accurate. You shouldn't rely on sites like Wikipedia because anyone can edit it and whoever edits it may be wrong. As well as checking the URL's ending such as gov and edu. If it is com it may be correct but you should be more cautious checking if the information is right.
To find if the information on the internet is correct you could do several things. I would first ask my teacher about the website I am using and ask them if it a reliable website. If the website is unreliable I would ask my teacher for a website recommendation. Another way to know if a website is reliable is if it is popular and if it has the words .gov or .edu
You know if a site is correct if it approved by any science group or if there is a program that it follows by. I think that if a site is either recommended by the school or by teachers the site is good. I don't think that sites like wikipedia are accurate because people write anything they want on them. Also in WiKi answers people can write things like "a bicycle is a mammal"
You sometimes can not tell if the internet is right or wrong. But usually there are some ways you can fine out. If it is a site that people can change the info it is not a good site to use. If it is a site that is a government website or on sites that your school recommended it is good.
You check the URL and check the reliability of the webstite
You check the URL and check the reliability of the website.
The Internet Explorer (or Safari, Firefox or Google Chrome) is a big place to find information and do things. There are many websites. Many people post things on there than can be accurate as well as inaccurate. Usually, I can tell a website is accurate when I check when, where, and who wrote the article and then go on another website to compare and contrast the information given.
These are the following ways on how we check reliability of a webpage:1. Who wrote it2. The website title (.edu, .gov)3. Point of view4. Links to other sources5. When that site was published
As i visited this site for the very first time, i spend really a great time in making a visit. You have shared really a good information in this blog..keep up your work..
Please write a thoughtful response to each daily warm-up question. "I don't know" is not what I'm looking for!
