Instructions: This assignment will be evaluating a web page using the TRAAP test. Imagine that you have a family member with Alzheimer’s disease. A friend sends you the following link about the use of aromatherapy in people with Alzheimer’s disease: https://best-alzheimers-products.com/alternative-therapy-for-alzheimers/aromatherapy-for-alzheimers Links to an external site.(Please click on the link or copy paste to get to the webpage). PART 1. For each of the five aspects (timeliness, relevance, authority, accuracy, and purpose) of the TRAAP Test (shown below), put an x by the number that best summarizes your rating for this aspect, using a 1-5 rating with 5 being best and 1 being worst.

Write a paragraph of at least 5 sentences, stating and justifying your judgment of the overall quality of this article based on the TRAAP Test, and noting any things could be changed in order to make this a better article in regard to the TRAAP test. You can earn points in this section, based on how well you have justified your overall judgment, and whether you have accurately identified strengths and weaknesses of the web page. ******* Make sure you check the grading rubric. The rubric asks whether your introduction summarizes the main points of the article and include a sentence with the take-home message of the article (one paragraph, at least five sentences). In my previous courses, some students missed including an Introduction paragraph. ******** *** Can use this information below to help with Part 1 *** The TRAAP Test: Evaluating Information Timeliness: The “newness” of the information When was the information published or posted? Have there been new versions or editions since this was published? How quickly does new research for this topic come out? Does new research expand upon or replace old information for this topic? Relevance: The depth and importance of the information for you Does this source help answer your question? Does only part of it help? Is it covering all aspects of your topic or only parts? How detailed is the information? Is it too basic for your needs? Too advanced? Authority: The source of the information Who is the author? What can you find about her in the source itself or through a web search? Is the author a professor or other expert? Does she have a degree related to the topic? Has she written on the topic previously? Is the author drawing from her own personal experience? Has the information been reviewed in some way, such as by an editor, fact checker, or through peer review? Was it self-published or posted on a personal site? Accuracy: The reliability and correctness of the information Where does the information come from? Does the author cite other sources? What does she cite? For websites, did the author provide links to other sources? Do the links still work? For studies, experiments, and other original research, does the author explain the methods she used to find her results? Does the information in this resource agree with other resources you have found and your own personal knowledge? Purpose: The reason the information was created Why did the author publish this source? Is she looking to inform, teach, advocate, sell, or entertain? Who is the intended audience?
