Research Basics: an open academic research skills course

Module 2 assessment

In Module 2 you learned how to evaluate the sources you've found to make sure that they are appropriate for academic research. You learned:

  • what elements to examine in order to find out whether a publication is scholarly
  • how to tell the difference between these scholarly sources and popular sources
  • how to evaluate websites to see whether they're credible sources for your research

If you're ready to test the knowledge you acquired in Module 2, select the link to the assessment below. If you'd like more practice first, you can return to the practice quizzes (Lesson 1, Lesson 2, Lesson 3).
