  4. Instructional Materials
  5. Course Activities and Learner Interaction
  6. Course Technology
  7. Learner Support

Each general standard includes between 3-12 specific standards. These specific standards are assigned points that identify them as essential (3 points), very important (2 points) or important (1 point).
