Using bullet points and sentences

Depending on the type of assessment task you are doing, you may be able to use bullet points where appropriate.

Here is an example of a short answer response using bullet points. Notice that there is a small lead in phrase, and each point starts with the same type of word (in this case, an “-ing word”)

Here is the same response written using full sentences. Notice that the paragraph flows well because the student has used linking words ‘also’ and ‘additionally’.

Check with your educator whether you are able to use bullet points for your particular assessment.
