Hint: Do all your resources pass an evaluation test?
R is for RATIONALE, the reason it exists. This will also let you know what the content BIAS is.
A is for AUTHORITY, is the author an EXPERT? Who says?
D is for DATE, is it CURRENT information? Some theories change in days.
A is for ACCURACY of information. Is the information you are receiving COMPLETE and IN CONTEXT, or cherry-picked and deceiving?
R is for RELEVANT, this could also be the first thing. If it isn't useful for your goal, don't waste your time by reading.
If information doesn't pass a RADAR test, it is probably not worth your time.
Caution: If you decide to use content that is unreliable, biased, or from an anonymous source, be careful to explain why you are still using such untrustworthy information.
