Tracking down elusive information takes some practice, careful scanning and investigative searching techniques.
For this reason, we created the Citation Challenge and Citation Assessment activities.
Citation Challenge offers three challenges of increasing complexity.
- The first level requires players to identify what information satisfies citation requirements. For example, what is the Author's name, the date of publication, the publisher, the Web page, etc.
- Level two is a live Internet search to locate information on an article on a NASA site. The player must locate the name of the author, date, etc. by scanning and browsing.
- Level three is another live search that awards extra points for inputting the missing information in MLA style.
- The whole package is an interactive companion to the Citation MicroModule on the 21cif.com site.
