Instead of ranking colleges, match them to students, proposes Ohio State University official: Higher Education Roundup

http://media.cleveland.com/static/cleve/static/img/logo_v001.pngBy Karen Farkas. Rather than a standard rating system that assumes an institution will be relevant for all prospective students, regardless of what area of study they want to pursue, an Ohio State University official proposes the federal government explore adopting a business model that helps people find successful partnerships, such as Match.com and eHarmony.com. The comments by Julia Carpenter-Hubin, assistant vice president for institutional research, regarding President Barack Obama’s proposed college rating system, were among thousands of pages of documents released last week by the government, which had sought input. Obama’s system is focused on access, affordability and outcomes. More...

India-specific Times Higher Education indicators soon

The Times Higher Education Ranking Agency of the UK, which grades higher educational institutions globally, has agreed to draw up an India specific indicator that would help global education stakeholders and international students to judge Indian educational institutions.
In a written reply in Rajya Sabha on Monday, minister of state for HRD Shashi Tharoor said international rankings were perceived to be of significance in enhancing global mobility of students and teachers and in attracting funding. Owing to this perceived significance, a committee constituted by the standing council of IITs held meetings with the Times Higher Education (THE) Ranking Agency and the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Ranking Agency on the matter of ranking IITs.

Not much has changed from last year. Looking at the Top 20, U.S. schools account for 57%, European schools account for 29%, and Asian schools hold the remaining 14% of spots on the list.  All of these percentages are the same as 2013 and vary only slightly from 2012, and the schools in the Top 20 for 2014 are the exact same schools in the Top 20 in 2013.

Rank and File

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/all/themes/ihecustom/logo.jpgBy Colleen Flaherty. Many full-time community college instructors have similar academic pedigrees to their peers at colleges or universities, and have devoted decades to their students and institutions, but don’t get the prestige – or the pay bumps – that come with traditional academic ranks. At most community colleges, instructors remain instructors whether they’ve been there for 2 months or 20 years. But North Carolina’s largest two-year institution is breaking the mold, offering instructors the opportunity to apply for promotion to traditional academic ranks and the raises that come with them.

When the Times Higher Education Rankings Fail The Fall-Down-Laughing Test

By Alex Usher. You may have noted the gradual proliferation of rankings at the Times Higher Education over the last few years.  First the World University Rankings, then the World Reputation Rankings (a recycling of reputation survey data from the World Rankings), then the “100 under 50” (World Rankings, restricted to institutions founded since the early 60s, with a methodological twist to make the results less ridiculous), then the “BRICS Rankings” (World Rankings results, with developed countries excluded, and similar methodological twists).
