The ability to predict the likelihood of criminals returning to crime is vital to those responsible for determining
the release and management of offenders (Andrews & Bonta,
). Bonta, Law, and Hanson
assert that it is now possible to accurately assess the risk of offending "especially...when predictions are based
on actuarially derived information rather than professional and clinical judgement" (p.124). Measures such as
previous offences, age, income and drug or alcohol dependency have been used successfully to predict criminal
behaviour (
, 2003; Blackburn, 1993; Bonta et al.,
Webster & Bailes, 2004). Despite this
evidence many violent offenders are still being assessed using professional judgement rather than by actuarial
measures (Polaschek

C- Paraphrase this passage: (7.5 pts)


Students frequently overuse direct quotation in taking notes, and as a result they
overuse quotations in the final [research] paper. Probably only about 10% of your final
manuscript should appear as directly quoted matter. Therefore, you should strive to limit
the amount of exact transcribing of source materials while taking notes.

Samples:
1. In research papers students often quote excessively, failing to keep quoted material down to a desirable
level. Since the problem usually originates during note taking, it is essential to minimize the material
recorded verbatim (Lester 46-47). Circle one: paraphrase or summary or plagiarize
2. Students should take just a few notes in direct quotation from sources to help minimize the amount of
quoted material in a research paper (Lester 46-47). Circle one: paraphrase or summary or plagiarize
3. Students often use too many direct quotations when they take notes, resulting in too many of them in the
final research paper. In fact, probably only about 10% of the final copy should consist of directly quoted
material. So it is important to limit the amount of source material copied while taking notes. Circle one:
paraphrase or summary or plagiarize
