What is the Value of Online Information?

Decide whether the information is useful (relevant) and truthful (reliable) by asking yourself these questions about the online information. These questions are guidelines to help you decide whether or not the information is useful and truthful.

RELIABLE/TRUTHFUL

Evaluate the AUTHORITY of the author (Note: If no author is listed, evaluate the organization who maintains the website by clicking on the link that provides information about the organization.)

  • Is there an author or source listed?
  • Is there information about the author’s (or source’s) credentials and/or experience so you have an indication of expertise on the topic?
  • Does the author or source cite sources or provide a bibliography?
  • Can you contact the author or source?

Evaluate the ACCURACY of the information

  • Does the site provide information that contradicts (does not agree with) other sources? (Note: You can only answer this question if you have looked at more than one source.)
  • Does the site include an explanation of its research methods?

Evaluate the OBJECTIVITY of the information

  • Is the site’s level of objectivity and bias acceptable for your research?
  • What is the URL? Are they trying to sell you something? Are there advertisements on the site?

RELEVANT/USEFUL

Evaluate the TIMELINESS of the information

  • Is the information current enough for your research? (Health sources should be within the past five years)
  • What is the most recent copyright date of the sources in the bibliography or references?
  • Is it riddled with dead links indicating it is not current or not maintained?

Evaluate the PURPOSE of the information

  • Is the purpose of the site to inform? To persuade? To entertain?
  • Does the site provide additional links that are also useful?

Evaluate the SCOPE AND COVERAGE or usefulness of the information

  • Does it cover several topics minimally?
  • Does the site cover one topic in detail?
  • Does the site address your research to the extent you need?

Genetic Disorders

You and your lab partner will choose a genetic disorder from the attached list to research. You will take notes on the disorder from 3 reliable sources and then prepare a PowerPoint presentation.

Databases

Technical Tips

Managing Windows: Close the windows you will not be using. Minimize and maximize or Tile windows. To tile windows right click on the time in the lower right corner. Left click on tile windows vertically or tile windows horizontally.

Using the Notes Page: Put the source for the information on the slide in the notes page so you can copy and paste the citation on the last slide. Write what you want to say about the slide when you age giving your oral presentation. The slide is in bullets, but your notes should be in complete sentences. When you are done, print a version of your PowerPoint that displays the notes pages so you can use this printout when presenting.

Finding image or videos: Google images is blocked. Most of the databases have an image or video section. Check the United Streaming Database for video clips.

A Genetic Disorder is passed down from parent to child and many conditions are unique to the mother while others are passed on from the father. Certain disorders are also more prevalent among different sexes and races. Modern technology though, has made it possible to test for many Genetic Disorders. A procedure called amniocentesis is frequently used during high-risk pregnancies to determine the risk of certain kinds of Genetic Disorders. In many cases early detection of many of these genetic factors can be life saving. There are numerous treatments available that can help prevent or treat many disorders. The Following is a list of many of those disorders.
