Breaking: Obama leváltja a rankingeket?

19 Dec

Ezekben a percekben jelent meg a másfél éve nyilvános vitán levő tervek alapján az Obama-adminisztráció felsőoktatás-értékelési rendszere. Hangsúlyozzák a készítők, hogy nem numerikus rangsort készítenek, hanem az egyre drágább felsőoktatás intézményi kínálatát mutatják be és értékelik a diákok és szülők számára, a következő szempontok szerint:

Hozzáférés – Elérhetőség – Teljesítményth

  • Hozzáférés
  •   Pell Grants
    The percentage of a college’s students who receive federal Pell Grants
  •   Family Contribution
    The department is considering a measure of the gap between the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and total cost of attendance not covered by financial aid.
  •   Family Income
    A measure that would seek to identify the number of low- and moderate-income students a college enrolls.
  •   First-Generation Status
    The percentage of enrolled students who did not have a parent who attended college.
  • Elérhetőség
  •   Net Price
    A measure of the cost of attendance after accounting for all federal, state and institutional grant aid.
  •   Price by Quintile
    This metric links net price to family incomes, but is only available for students who receive federal aid.

    Teljesítmény

  •   Completion Rates
    Federal IPEDS graduation rates, which track only first-time, full-time students. Scheduled to expand to broader metrics in 2017.
  •   Alternative to IPEDS
    The department is exploring an alternative completion rate metric based on data from the National Student Loan Data System.
  •   Transfer Rates
    Also on the table is a measure of student-transfer rates, with particular attention to two-year college students who earn bachelor’s degrees.
  •   Earnings
    The department is looking at a variety of employment outcome measures that track student earnings.
  •   Graduate School
    The department is considering a measure of graduate-school attendance rates of former students within a defined period, such as a decade.
  •   Loan Repayment
    Metrics such as the percentage of students who repay loans on time would help consumers weigh specific colleges.
