The PROMPT checklist is a simple checklist for reviewing research information developed by the Open University:
Presentation – Is the information clear and readable?
Relevance – Is the information relevant to the purpose?
Objectivity – Is the content balanced or is there some bias?
Method – How was the information gathered together?
Provenance – Who or what organisation wrote the information and are they a reliable source?
Timeliness – Ts the information up-to-date and does it matter in the context?
All research materials should be reviewed using PROMPT!
I have a feeling that if I use this too much, I may begin to despise it, as I do SMART objectives (Side note, a good friend, Mike Morrison, wrote about the history of SMART here).
