Sixth Bad Apple Case


Just added: a new Bad Apple evaluation challenge: Save the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus.

For years, we've used the endangered Pacific Tree Octopus as a test case to teach investigative searching skills:

  • Fact Checking
  • Ownership
  • Purpose

Give it a try. If you've never read about the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus before, you really owe it to yourself.
