A survey of faculty members (n=74) and undergraduate students (n=242) examined perceived importance of syllabus components. Significant differences were found between faculty and student responses, with students more concerned than faculty with information on test format, length and format of required papers and projects, course withdrawal policy, and specific goals/objectives. Both groups preferred comprehensive and flexible syllabi. (DB)
