As you complete the assessment consider what other questions or rubrics you might use to supplement your evaluation? Is there key information missing from the CRAAP test? Do you prefer a different evaluation rubric? If, after completing the CRAAP test, you would not recommend your resource, try to find another one to replace it

Once you have deemed your resource worthy, annotate it using “Add Comment” in the collaborative padlet to include an explanation of how you would use this resource in your course. Review some of the other contributions in the collaborative padlet and add comments to those curated creations.

Then comment on the resource that you have chosen for your contribution, share it with your colleagues, and reflect more deeply on the ways that you will use the resource in your course or context and what you might curate. Include a summary reflection in your response to this activity.

As evidence of your work, upload a screenshot of your completed column from the collaborative padlet and attach your completed CRAAP assessment in your response to the Holy CRAAP! activity Note: It may not be possible to fit your entire column in one screenshot; you can combine multiple screenshots into a single image or insert into a document.
