Test yourself!

  1. Present the facts in a careful way, to persuade readers to draw certain conclusions. (click to expand or collapse)
    Incorrect. Remember, a Wikipedia article should be neutral, balanced, and fair to all views. You want readers to have access to facts, and trust that those facts will lead them to their own conclusions. This is the policy known as Neutral Point of View.
  2. Replicate the best information from published authors, word-for-word. (click to expand or collapse)
    Incorrect. You should be using reliable, published information, but you want to be very careful not to plagiarize, or closely paraphrase, those authors. Instead, you should seek out good information and summarize those facts using your own words.
  3. Share neutral facts from reliable sources that present all views in a balanced way. (click to expand or collapse)
    Correct! Wikipedia articles should share neutral facts from reliable sources. When there’s a controversy, include only the facts that are agreed on by all views of the controversy.
  4. Include interesting first-hand accounts about the author’s experiences with the topic. (click to expand or collapse)
    Incorrect! Wikipedia is not a personal webpage or blog. You don’t want to share personal stories, even if they relate to the topic matter. Instead, find trusted, reliable sources, and cite them.
