Characteristics of a well-done paraphrase
It is not a summary.
It does not contain most of the words or phrases from the original (plagiarism).
It includes all minor details from original.
The meaning of the writing being paraphrased is clearer to the reader than in the original text.
It restates the thesis
It is usually shorter than the original. wikipedia.com
