Note and evaluate facts


  • What criteria should I use to evaluate the information I found?
  • Does the information I found relate to my topic and questions?
  • How do I take notes so that they are in my own words?
  • Which facts do I need to create a citation for each source?
  • Do I have facts from all points of view on my topic?
  • Do I have the information I need and is my research complete?
