It is essential that you study the list below to ensure that you understand the terminology used in assignment and examination questions. The successful outcome of your assessment is significantly determined by the extent to which you have addressed the specific terminology in relation to the subject matter under examination.

Please ensure that you read your assignment question carefully and that you address all the descriptor words. Descriptor words are words that indicate what task is required of you, such as analyse, list, explain, describe, etc. Also ensure that you address the  content words.

Content words refer to the action that is required.

For example, if the assignment question requires you to  list  and  explain the project management cycle, ensure that you address BOTH descriptor words of listing and explaining. Ask yourself - "What am I required to list and explain?" to ensure that you are addressing the required content words. You will lose precious marks if you only list or only explain.   List and explanation of the descriptor words
