website reliability checks

I'm currently working with Mr. Michael and his 7th grade classes 
in ICT to review and discuss how to determine whether 
a website is reliable or unreliable.

Below are the key factors we've come up with... to look into... and then decide whether you think the information is reliable...
  • Reliable and qualified author / organization
  • Up-to-date
  • Is the information biased?
  • The site is relevant to me
  • URL domain (.com   .net   .gov   .edu)
  • Site has choices and all links work
  • Information can be checked on other sources
  • Clear aims of the site
  • Site achieves its aims
