Evaluating Websites with CART
Diamond students use the CART method to
evaluate information from websites.
If your teacher asks you to "CART" a website, they expect you to evaluate the information on a website based on the following criteria:
C = Current
A = Accessible
R = Relevant
T = Trustworthy
A successful researcher always evaluates information, especially from the Internet. Diamond students use the CART method.
