Article Summary Directions
You are required to read and summarize research articles this semester. The article summary is limited to a single-spaced one page paper. You must summarize the article I give you. It will be posted to BlazeView. Provide the following four items in your article summaries:
need research cited.
(or variables) used during the study.
o Sample: The sample may be a group of participants or previous studies that
have explored the topic. Be clear on this. State if the authors (or the previous studies they looked at) mention different populations looked at. For example, some authors refer to other studies to build their argument. These other studies might have looked at samples of prison inmates, offenders who were released on bail, or individuals on community sanctions. State specifically what they looked at. Other good information to add is the year(s) included and the total number of participants (or studies).
o Measures: The measures are the variables the author looked at.
â–ª Independent Variable(s) (IV): The IVs are what impacts change in the dependent variable. For example, many studies have evaluated the impact of race and socioeconomic status on recidivism. In this case, race and SES would be the IVs and recidivism would be the DV. IVs can be anything the researchers hypothesize and can include items such as type of program used for treatment, an individualâ€™s level of self-control or impulsivity, or if the individual experienced physical or sexual abuse as a child. Note those measures that were most significant in the article if there were many discussed. Make sure to explain vague concepts (such as how they measured self-control). Specifically state â€œThe independent
variable(s) for this study were…â€ I want to see you know the difference
between the IV and DV.
â–ª Dependent Variable(s) (DV): CJ is often concerned with the
outcome measure of recidivism (often operationalized as a new arrest, conviction, incarceration). Other outcome measures may include quality of life markers, prison misconducts, or test scores. These are the dependent variables. State the DVs of the study specifically, â€œThe dependent variable(s) for this study were…â€
You are required to summarize this article in a single-spaced one page paper. For this assignment, I will not accept anything over one page. For example, if some key findings are on page 2, you will miss on some of the points for that section. Every section must be on the one single-spaced page required for the assignment. That said, it does not have to be a full page. It can be less if you are able to address all sections in less than a page.
The point of this assignment is for you to learn how to summarize research articles. Additionally, this will increase your skills at taking large amounts of information and synthesizing it down into the most important points. One page summaries are commonly used in graduate school or literature review presentations when you work in the field. This is a good skill to learn!
The following items must also be met:
and the class title.
paraphrase otherwise. More than one quote results in a deduction.
