College students are distributed a syllabus for each of their courses entailing a schedule of specific assignments, test dates and components, and other information that is vital to mastery of each respective course, as well as classroom policies and contact information for instructors. This information is helpful for the collegiate student in terms of keeping him or her abreast of assignments, test dates and components, etc. Distribution of syllabi that would be inclusive of such information would certainly help to improve academic performance amongst elementary, middle, and high school students by helping to keep parents as well as those particular students abreast of what they are or will be doing in the classroom and what they should be doing outside of the classroom or by means of homework assignments.
