For the first 8 questions of this activity, you'll be asked to adopt a scenario:

It is late November, 2014. You have been participating in a study abroad program for the last several months where you have been traveling to different countries in West Africa as part of a cultural studies program. This program closely examines health and medical aspects of local villages. As part of your culminating experience, you are asked to write a research paper relating the observations you've made during this experience and connections you have made to risk factors that may have larger impacts outside of these villages.

During the course of your study, you've taken interest in the spread of the Ebola Virus. Doing a quick search, you've found some sources, but you're not sure if they are verifiable enough to use for your research paper.

In this quiz, you will closely examine these three sources to determine how they can be used to help you write your research paper. For this task you'll be asked a series of questions affiliated with specific criteria to help you make this determination.

Use these sources to answer the questions in this quiz:

Source 1: "Ebola Outbreak 2014: The Facts"

Source 2: "Strategies for containing Ebola in West Africa"

Source 3: "Eboal (Ebola Virus Disease)"
