Third Task

Question: Based on the results of the research, what is the credibility of the Internet and
information delivered by it, compared to the credibility of other media sources?
(PL: Jak oceniana jest, na podstawie wynikow badan, wiarygodnosc Internetu i informacji z
niego pochodzacych w porownaniu z wiarygodnoscia innych mediow?)

Answer:

"Students in this study reported that they perceived the Internet to be moderately to
somewhat credible (M=4.09, S.D.=0.82), although less credible than newspapers,
television, and magazines. Compared to the nonstudent sample the students found all
information channels to be more credible than did the nonstudents, as indicated by a
significant between-subjects (student status) effect in a repeated-measures ANOVA." <>

2. “I think, I would perform better if only ...” (complete the sentence)

there was better funcionality of finding more information inside


articles. It's easy to find sth connected to subject, but in most cases
it don't help in find an answer I needed.

3. Would you like to continue using this digital library (DSpace)? (Say why)

Yes

No

I have a feeling that it will be easier to find an answer to that


questions in google. I mean that their search engine is more
"semantic" than Dspace. In this case I would prefer to get paper
article than read it on the screen to find my answer.

4. Do you have any comments to this part of the evaluation?

no
