Narrative rules for Part IV Bullet Comments


Be short, concise, to the point

"S" in Soldier is always capitalized

General rule of thumb for numbers...If one word write it out.. If multiple words use the number (e.g. 19 is entered nineteen, 1,023 remains 1,023)

Be no longer than two lines, preferably one, and no more than one bullet to a line

Start with action words (verb) or possessive pronouns (his or her), preferably verbs

Personal pronouns (he or she) may be used

Use past tense when addressing NCOs performance and/or contributions

Double spaced between bullets

Preceded by a small letter 'o' to designate the start of the comment

Each bullet must start with a lower case letter unless it's a proper noun that is usually capitalized and no punctuation at end

Specific example can only be used once; therefore, the rater must decide under which responsibility the bullet fits best

Narrative rules for Part IV Bullet Comments
(Cont.)


second line of a bullet may start under the first letter of the first line as long as they are consistent

excellence or needs improvement ratings require mandatory bullets to justify rating

first bullet in each rating should be the strongest

hand written comments, underlining, italics, and excess use of capital letters cannot be used in bullets

quantify (avoid generalities), show impact, etc.
