mlnosbis 4/19/2017:
1) The learning outcomes should be labeled as outcomes, not objectives, in the syllabus to prevent confusion. Objectives are the larger goals for the course, not the measurable outcomes.
2) Assignment breakdown should be listed the same way on the CIM form, instead of 1 assignment for 100% of the grade.
3) Length of course is shown as 6 weeks. The length is 8 weeks for the shorter, not the regular academic, courses. https://studentservices.ncsu.edu/calendars/academic/#fall

pjharrie - 06/29/2017 - How many times can an assignment be resubmitted for regrading? This is picky, but all the week numbers in the syllabus are lowercase, except 'Six'

mlnosbis 7/27/2017: The evaluation methods should use the same weight or point value on both the syllabus and CIM form. The syllabus lists point values, while the CIM form lists percentages. Choose one method and use that in both places. Everything else has been addressed.

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
-There should be office hours on the syllabus.
-Should there be a restrictive statement, or is this course available to all students?
-Should you list requirements for auditing the course? GS Response- No, the requirements are determined on an individual student basis.
