    Hi,

    I'm in the middle of finishing off my source evaluation and was wondering if anyone else if a but confused about what can take a source evaluation up to the highest levels? I know that there's a mark scheme but it seems a bit trivial trying to deduce "good" from "excellent" etc etc.

    You need to consider the following things:
    • Purpose: What's the purpose of the source? (e.g. to inform, to describe etc.)
    • Author: Who's the author of the source? Does this make them biased in any way?
    • Nature: What type of source is it? (e.g. book, report, article etc.)
    • Date: When was it published? Does the date have any significance? Is it outdated?
    • Audience: Who was the audience? How did it impact them? [this one isn't neccessary]
    General questions to ask yourself:
    • How useful is the source?
    • Did the author/writer omit anything?
    • Is there any bias? -Why is there bias? How is it neutral?
    I highly suggest yo use this website to help you, I know it might be for GCSE students but the same applies for A-Level.
