Missing Syllabus Information

This evening I was reviewing the syllabus for my literature course, trying to get an idea about due dates and what type of work load I should be prepared for. When I opened the syllabus, I looked for the "Evaluation" section, the standard place for finding such information. I found no such section of the syllabus, and the information is no where else on the syllabus. I am now in a slight worry, since the syllabus is essentially the contract on which a college course operates.  Why would an instructor not include it? I have too much active course work for this one instructor to throw unexpected variables into things because of a lack of information on the syllabus.
