The purpose this assignment is to help you begin the research process for your argumentative research essay and evaluate the source material you plan to use as support for your argument to ensure you’re using reliable research. As a gateway assignment toward writing your essay, you will write a brief paper using the CRAAP method for evaluating sources.

  • C- Currency.  When was the source published? Does it contain sufficiently up-to-date information for your topic?
  • R- Relevance.  Is the source relevant to your topic? How does the source inform/support your argument.
  • A- Authority.  Who is the author, publisher, organization, or sponsor of the source? Is the author/provider of the source sufficiently qualified to write on the topic?
  • A- Accuracy. Is the information in the source accurate? Does the author support their claim with evidence?
  • P-  Purpose. What is the source’s purpose? To educate? To persuade?


To complete the CRAAP paper, choose one (1) of your sources for the argumentative research essay; note, for the purposes of this assignment, the source you choose must be one of your scholarly sources (from an academic journal or book). Write a CRAAP evaluation that includes the following:

  • An introductory paragraph that briefly identifies the author and summarizes the source.
  • A brief description of how the article meets each criterion in the craap method as described above.
  • Proper documentation of source material in MLA format, including in-text citations for any quotations and a works cited page in MLA format. Remember that MLA format requires that you include URLs for all electronic sources, including sources obtained from library databases. Citation requirements also include designating the database from which you obtained the source, and all of your sources for the research essay, including popular sources such as magazines or newspapers, must be obtained from a BC library database. Points will be deducted for failing to comply with all research and citation requirements and may result in failing the assignment
