For my 4th homework of my IT Fundamentals class, I had to investigate a topic to do the CRAAP Test. Of course, I chose one of the two discussed in the blog: Sustainability.

Overall, my references are good. They are not bad, but they could be better. The total points from the CRAAP Test to each of my references were:

(1) 15 points

(2) 15 points

(3) 15 points

(4) 10 points

(5) 13 points

The 4th reference needs to be discarded because of Currency, Author, and Purpose.
