CRAAP TEST

 

 

 

 

adapted from the CRAAP test created by the Meriam Library of California State University, Chico

CRAAP Test Jigsaw Activity -- can be used with classes

You can have students evaluate an information resource that already exists in your curriculum. Students can look at just one part of the CRAAP test. Or, you can do a think pair share with each group/pair looking at a different part. For example, using the articles below half of the class could look at JUST authority, while the other half could look at JUST accuracy.
