Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Citing am i right?

posted by .

Review the Summarizing, Paraphrasing, and Citing reading. Read the following paragraph:
Decision making is a process by which several possibilities are considered and prioritized, resulting in a clear choice of one option over others. Decision making is a fact of life personally and in business. We make dozens of decisions each day. Some decisions are simple, while others are complex. Some are made for us while others require a great deal of analysis and thought. From what to wear to work to what computer system to choose to how to reward top performers to what movie to see, we use a variety of complex thought processes to make decisions from an array of options. Our ability to make decisions helps us to navigate through life, avoiding potential problems and expanding our horizons. Decision making plays a similar role in business. Decision making aids managers in identifying and selecting among potential opportunities, helping them solve immediate problems and make future problems more manageable. Good decision makers are those who are effective at processing information, assessing risks, and making choices that will have positive outcomes for their organization.

    Correct. See http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/03/ -- scroll down to A Work by Three to Five Authors to see specifics.

    2.My answer:
    Good decision makers are those who are effective at processing information, which will have positive outcomes for their organization. (De Janasz, Dowd & Schneider, 2002)
    Looks good. However, if this citation were to come AFTER the one above, how would the citation be written?

    3.Identify a direct quote from the paragraph. Create an in-text citation for your direct quote.

    “Good decision makers are those who are effective at processing information, assessing risks, and making choices that will have positive outcomes for their organization.” (De Janasz, Dowd & Schneider, 2002 p. 372)
    The only thing missing is the comma after 2002 -- http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/02/ Scroll down to Short Quotations.

    See this: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/06/ -- Scroll down to Three to Seven Authors. What changes do you need to make?

    my homatown is famous for several amazing natural features.first,it is noted for the wheaton river,which is very wide and beautiful.on either side of this river,which is 175 feet wide,are many willow trees which have lng branches that can move gracefully in the wind.in autumn the leaves of these trees fall and cover the riverbanks like golden snow.also,on the other side of the town is wheaton hill,which is unusual beacuse it is very steep.even though it is steep,climping this hill is not dangerous,because there are some firm rocks along the sides that can be used as stairs.there are no trees around this hill,so it stands clearly against the sky and can be seen from many miles away.the third amazing feature is the big old tree.this tree stands two hundred feet tall and is probably about six hundred years old.these three landmarks are truly amazing and make my hometown a famous place.
