This Competency Assessment assesses the following outcome(s):
SS290M1-1: Identify the concept of data literacy.
In this assessment, you will create an annotated bibliography: a list of sources with descriptive or evaluative text following each full citation. An annotated bibliography is helpful in evaluating a number of sources and keeping track of how each source is applies to the task at hand.
For example, if you are writing a paper for an assignment that contains multiple subtopics, you can note the subtopic in an annotated bibliography, and that will enable you to search through sources and quickly identify the ones you need for each part of your paper.
Review Writing an Annotated Bibliographymethodology, which provides information about annotated bibliographies from the PG Writing Center.
For this assessment, you will locate and annotate five sources according to the following directions:
Locate five academic sources in the Purdue Global Library. If you have another class with an assignment that requires you to find sources, you can use this activity to do just that.

The full APA reference for each article.
What institution (company, government, university, etc.) supports this information?
The author’s names and credentials (for example, the degree earned and/or school/agency represented by each author).
The audience for the source.
Are all sources cited in the article clearly listed in a bibliography or reference list?
Are the topics in the article addressed with clearly presented arguments and adequate support? Show one example.
Why should anyone believe information from this source?
