3. Apply the CRAAP test to each source. Explain how each source passes or does not pass the CRAAP test. This task will require you to research the author, read all (or a significant portion) of the article, and to study all other necessary information about the article that will help you examine it in terms of the five CRAAP components: Currency, Relevance, Authority, Accuracy, Purpose.

Please use the following document–or at least model its format–to complete the assignment: CRAAP.docx (this document can also be found on the webpage linked above in part 1 of the instructions–and yes, sadly, the creator of the document misspelled “CRAAP” as “CRAPP” at the top).
