Part IV Passage for Summary Writing (30 points)
In this part, examinees listen to a passage first and then are given 25 minutes to write a summary of what they have heard. The summary should be around 150 -200 words and include the main ideas. Reference to the scoring plans is provided.
1. A three-year-old Brooklyn girl who suffered a skull fracture and malnourishment died yesterday morning.
2. The parents were arrested on abuse charges before, but now a grand jury is to weigh charges against them in the death.
3. The mother said that the child was not hers and she had recently been smuggled into U.S. from Mexico.
4. Yesterday the parents were both accused of endangering the welfare of a child and reckless endangerment.
5. Both pleaded not guilty and were held without bail.
6. The abuse of the little girl was more the rule rather than the exception.
7. Punishment was not limited to withholding food and beatings.
8. The mother was 23. The couple live with their daughter and the woman’s five-year-old boy with another man.
9. The father, 19, favored the girl over the boy. The mother eventually took out her frustration on the girl.
10. It remained unclear exactly how the little girl suffered the skull fracture and cerebral bruising.
11. An autopsy will be performed today, which will determine whether more serious charges are brought.
