In Search of a Better Mousetrap: A Look at Higher Education Ranking Systems
Swail, Watson Scott
College and University, v86 n4 p28-33, 36 Spr 2011
College rankings create much talk and discussion in the higher education arena. This love/hate relationship has not necessarily resulted in better rankings, but rather, more rankings. This paper looks at some of the measures and pitfalls of the current rankings systems, and proposes areas for improvement through a better focus on teaching and learning and workforce outcomes for graduates.
