Public Hearing on College Ratings

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/all/themes/ihecustom/logo.jpgBy Michael Stratford. A federal college ratings system has the potential to curb access to higher education for disadvantaged minority and low-income students, several college leaders and student advocates told U.S. Education Department officials on Wednesday. Dozens of students, faculty members, administrators, parents and advocacy groups testified at a daylong hearing at California State University’s Dominguez Hills campus. The event kicked off a series of four public forums that the Education Department is holding this month to solicit feedback on how to develop a federal college ratings system, President Obama's top higher education priority.

Choose Your Ranking

http://www.insidehighered.com/sites/all/themes/ihecustom/logo.jpgBy Elizabeth Redden. It’s no secret that American and British universities dominate the global university rankings, a fact that's prompted the proliferation of regional rankings that delve deeper into the pool of say, just Latin American or just Asian universities. The slicing and dicing of international university rankings has been happening for years, but three new efforts to rank universities in countries that haven’t historically fared well in the international league tables – the Middle East and North Africa region and the so-called BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) countries – have been announced in recent months.

Wissenschaftsrat startet Forschungs-Ratings



http://www.spiegel.de/static/sys/v10/logo/spiegel_online_logo_460_64.pngVon Jan Friedmann. Uni-Ranglisten sind ungerecht und ungenau, beklagen die Hochschulen schon lange. Jetzt will der Wissenschaftsrat alle Fächergruppen aufwendig von Gutachtern bewerten lassen. Ein Ranking soll es aber nicht geben.
Das Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung (CHE) etwa sucht nach besonders starken Fachbereichen und wertet neben Kennzahlen auch Meinungsäußerungen von Studenten aus. Das "Times Higher Education Ranking" bewertet die Reputation von gesamten Unis. Und die britische "University Sex League" erhebt gar die Zahl der Sexualpartner seit Studienstart, was der sonst eher unbekannten Roehampton University in London zuletzt einen Spitzenplatz verschaffte.

http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSdIxvO8tUi1J4tjglUPobMcbmp1ExOL7skFAFw53J_zm0PYN2Jm1oD2F4Although critics disparage the college rankings as flawed and elitist, a growing number of students seem to be relying on them to help with their college picks. That was the conclusion of a new survey by Art & Science Group. The higher-education consulting firm polled high school students about college rankings three times -- in 1995, 2002 and last winter -- and found that the importance of rankings in students' college decisions has climbed considerably since the first two surveys.

http://orientation.blog.lemonde.fr/files/2011/08/Edhec-Olivier-Rollot-208x300.jpgBlog "Il y a une vie après le bac" d'Olivier Rollot. Ils font l'événement mais analysent-ils vraiment de la même façon la valeur des universités ? Pas vraiment. En haut du dernier classement annuel international paru, celui du Times Higher Education (THE), le California Institute of Technology (seulement 2 000 étudiants) confirme sa suprématie pour la troisième année consécutive et devance Harvard, Oxford, Stanford et le Massachusetts Institute of Technology, soit exactement le même classement qu’en 2012.
