I found this material online but I did not understand the difference between lists and checklists.
A list is any set of items that are separated between commas, semicolons, or slashes.
"commas, semicolons, or slashes"
This is a list, as it separates the three items (can be more) with commas in this case. Whenever you make a list, you must keep the same styling between the items.
This is a correct list:
"I am going to go skiing, hiking, and swimming."
This list is correct because all items have the same form. verb + -ing
This is an incorrect list:
"I am going to go hiking, invite my friends, and prepare for my test."
This list is incorrect because it has 3 different forms. These are:
- verb + ing
- infinitive - to
- phrasal verb
If you create an incorrect list, there is no parallel structure, which must be maintained when creating a list for it to be a correct sentence.
A checklist on the other hand is a to-do list, usually containing a few short notes to help you remember what to do.
In a list, you enumerate or compile things. On the picture in your post, you can see a list.
A checklist is a list of the tasks to do, the things to buy, the people to call, an inventory, etc. You will probably add a check whenever one of the items is done.
You could consult a dictionary to find out the difference.
