Calibrating Canadian Universities: Rankings for Sale Once Again
Cramer, Kenneth M.; Page, Stewart
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v22 n1 p4-13 2007
A summary and update on recent research by the authors and others concerning rankings of Canadian universities is presented. Some specific data are reported in regard to the 2005 and 2006 ranking data published by "Maclean's" magazine. Some criticisms and difficulties with the use of rank-based data are outlined with regard to the issues of university selection and the interpretation of commonly used ranking indices. Also, aside from statistical and related matters, several implications of ranking exercises for the personal and academic welfare of Canadian students, at all educational levels, are described.
