The ACT UP Method

When evaluating web sources it can be easy to watch a lie grow into something you believe is the truth. Take care to evaluate information using methods like the ACT UP method

Author. Who wrote the resource? Who are they? Background information matters.

What does Act up stand for?

Unbiased. Is the information presented to sway the audience to a particular point of view? Resources unless otherwise stated should be impartial.

Currency. When was this resource written? When was it published? Does this resource fit into the currency of your topic?

Privilege. Check the privilege of the author(s). Are they the only folks who might write or publish on this topic? Who is missing in this conversation? Critically evaluate the subject terms associated with each resource you found. How are they described? What are the inherent biases?

Truth. How accurate is this information? Can you verify any of the claims in other sources? Are there typos and spelling mistakes?

Ultimately, the goal of the ACT UP Method is to ensure that you are not just evaluating sources for truth but for voices that are often suppressed or overlooked due to systemic opressions

good luck detecting those lies!

This method does not solely detect malinformation, but also is a way to ensure a total picture view is being gotten, so it is growing as a recommended way to evaluate resources for use.
