Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.
- Do they use key words from the title or question?

- Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
Compare Seaford's Method of Coastal Defence with the one at colchester
"By Comparing both beach nourishment in Seaford and managed retreat in Colchester, even though both methods are soft engineering, they have different pros and cons in terms of financial and environmental considerations. To conclude, though both plans show positive results against storms and erosion and would be cheaper when comparing with hard protection. However, "managed retreat" should not be applied to Seaford as the town is relatively important.
Using sample studies, outline the factors that impact upon coastal environments and discuss the management strategies that can be put in place to protect coastal environments.
"In conclusion, there are many factors that influence the coastal environment. Both nature and humans contribute to shaping the coast, because of their physical elements and human activities. In the cases where these factors have caused problems to the coast, management strategies have been put into place to manage the shore as well as educate the community.

To Assess the movement of Material Along Deal's Beach, in the recent Past.
I can conclude from my results that longshore drift was taking place on the day of our visit. The longshore drift was shaping and moving the stones between the groynes on the day of the visit, along with the past.
Relation to Hypothesis
The hypothesis was 'to see if Deal is being shaped more due to the process of L.D (if we found L.D present on our visit) or by human activity on the beach' and to the fact that longshore drift was moving and shaping the pebbles, then it has been shaping the beach. Due to beach nourishment however, it was hard to see that the pebbles at the back were large and angular and the pebbles at the front were small and rounded, so we couldn't really tell if the longshore drift was having a large effect on shaping Deal Beach in the past and the day of our visit."
