In this article, we connect the scholarly conversations around established and emerging source evaluation frameworks such as the ABCs of website evaluation, CRAAP Test, DIG Method, RADAR approach, SIFT Method, the Proactive Evaluation approach proposed by the Project Information Literacy Team. We then explain each evaluation framework, delineating which framework is appropriate for a particular format, such as scholarly sources, online sources, image-based sources, and/or networked information sources. Lastly, we showcase the ways we have incorporated these source evaluation frameworks into our own classroom instruction and provide readers with ideas on how to do the same within their own institutional contexts.
