Contains a video and quiz introducing students to source evaluation techniques

How to Use This Guide

Watch the 10-minute video in the box below. For your convenience, the script is also available.

You may want to pause the video as you watch it to think about some of the questions it asks in connection with illustrations of important points.

Once you've finished watching the video, test your understanding by taking a short quiz, located in the box below the video. It asks you to first read a brief article and then answer four multiple choice questions about the article. The questions will ask you to practice the approach to evaluating sources that is outlined in the video. (If you have difficulty accessing the quiz in the box below, try accessing it directly. First make sure you are logged in to your Loyola -- not your personal -- Gmail account.)


Having trouble accessing the quiz in the box below the video? Here are a few troubleshooting steps:

  • Make sure that you are logged in to your Loyola (not your personal) Gmail within the same browser window.
  • Try a different web browser. For example, if you're using Safari, try Firefox or Chrome. 
  • Access the link to the quiz directly.
