Evaluating Credible and Scholarly Scientific SourcesThe purpose of this assignment is to help you distinguish between different types of information sources and evaluate sources of information for credibility. Scientists and scholars use information from a variety of sources, some of them scholarly journal articles that have been peer-reviewed (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., and others credible websites, magazines, and news sources.  While all scholarly sources are considered credible, most credible sources you will encounter in your daily life are not actually scholarly.  It is important to view information with a critical eye, as there is a lot of misinformation from bunk sources out there.  If you do not believe this, just navigate to Google in your Internet browser, type in the words, “We never went to the Moon”, and see what you find.  Did you know that the Moon may be made of cheese?  Exactly what kind, however, remains a mystery (Uncyclopedia.wikia.com, 2016).
In order to complete this assignment, you will need to follow the links provided on the Week Two Assignment Reporting FormPreview the documentView in a new window to view three numbered sources.  For each source, complete a two-page questionnaire.  When you have finished, you will have identified which of three sources is not credible, which sources are credible, and which source is also scholarly. Once you have completed the required sections within the Week Two Assignment Reporting FormPreview the documentView in a new window submit the document via Waypoint. The document does not need to include a title page or other APA formatting; however, if you utilize any outside sources in your answers, you must reference these sources in proper APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.Uncyclopedia.wikia.com (2016).
